CHERRIES OMG bought some cherries the other day and started having with breakfast. Read an article this morning that cherries increased insulin production by 50%. I was 5.2 after work today so had a good handful of cherries and a hand full of almonds and did a little yard work came back in and tested at 3.7 I have not been that low since ever. I suspect cherries had something to do with it. Anyone else have a positive result with cherries.

One thing it is going to do is make me really watch my levels after I eat and take corrective action immediately. Thanks Again for a great article

Serious cherry freak here. I remember once in Croatia years ago getting the best huge bag of cherries ever and ate them until I turned red (ahem - and got sick).

So - I got pretty excited by your post. Googled and all the press I came up with on this was regarding tart cherries. Did you find anything like that with sweet cherries?

Never mind - I'm open to experimenting

"In early laboratory studies using animal pancreatic cells, the chemicals, called anthocyanins, increased insulin production by 50 percent"

REF: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...1220122203.htm

Sorry but I think you have it backwards, if cherries induce the the metabolism to produce an un- naturally high level of insulin, then that extra level of insulin will produce an un-naturally high level of insulin resistance, kinda like being a glyburide junkie and in the the end it will not work because one's metabolism will negate that excito-toxin with even more insulin resistance, and finally your overstressed beta cells will start failing. That is how Big Pharma keeps type 2 diabetics hooked on their medications to begin with.

EDIT: So maybe being a cherry addict, in part, caused your diabetes, maybe?

Most of these "Scientists" can't see the forest for the trees! Or else they are being paid to propagate a devious lie.
