it appears they've only tested it on rats from what the article is saying. It sounds promising though. I'd be interested to hear if there are any side effects to taking the supplement. I'm not sure how well it would work for diabetics? Maybe it will depend on state of your pancreas, etc.?

This is the crux of the issue - of all the issues: If they don't run trials on PWD (persons with diabetes), whatever conclusions they draw are essentially useless.
