I've never heard of it, but if it keeps your bgs low, keep taking it. I do take CoQ10 and Krill Oil and do a pretty low carb diet. I also take 2550 mg of metformin which keeps my bgs close to 100 or under.

diagnosed Feb 2007
low carb organic diet
3 T of Coconut Oil daily
moderate exercise- mostly walking 3-5 miles, tennis - 4 hours per week, weight training, hiking on weekends and vacations 7-10 miles

HbA1c 5.3 3/11
