I have Type 2 diabetes and am currently taking Actos and Glyburide/Metformin.
Having never been on any medications prior to this, I would really like to get off them. These meds definitely led to weight gain for me and I have started a physical and diet regimen. I realize that if I had never become sedentary, I may never have developed type 2.
I read literature from HSI (Health Sciences Institute) about natural remedies and they specifically noted 3 products- Glucotor v.2 (North America), GlucoSure (India) and MetaPhase (China).

Does anyone have knowledge and/or an opinion of these natural remedies ?

Thanks !

Ooops! The second item should be GlucoCARE, not GlucoSure.

I realize this is an old thread, but since I have direct knowledge & experience about a product mentioned by the enquirer, I thought it might be of general interest to the wider diabetic community out there (esp. T2), even if the original enquirer no longer visits these shores. What follows is an edited/updated amalgam of a review and responses to a couple of queries from readers posted to another Diabetes forum. Aside from those two queries, I would say that my review of Glucotor v2 was generally met by an outburst of public apathy from the T2 community, possibly due to the perfectly understandable suspicion that this might be yet another 'snake oil' remedy. And indeed there are so many of these out there that it would be churlish of me to blame anybody for being ultra cautious about trying out yet another one, especially if you've already been burned once. But if you only ever try one of these natural remedies in your life, at least give it your best shot by trying this one. Odds are, you won't be disappointed.

REVIEW of GLUCOTOR v2
I'm Type 2 (diagnosed almost c3.5 yrs ago), and control my BG thru diet & exercise. OK, truth be told, struggle to control it with d&e. I have resisted mainstream pharma 'solutions' (metformin, crestor, etc.) because of the well-documented & often dire side-effects. After extensive research in this area, I have found only one 'natural' remedy that I thought was worth trying, and I'm glad I did. Unlike all the 'snake oil' remedies out there, Jon Barron's Glucotor v2 formula appears by all accounts to be the genuine article. At the very least, it works for me. I can testify to its efficacy based on actual blood sugar readings. For example, 2hrs after my main meal I average 7 - 8 mmols/ltr without 'intervention'. My target, according to my diabetic nurse, is single digit nos - ie anything less than 10 mmols/ltr, so even unassisted I'm well within my target range. However, with Glucotor2 I regularly return 5.00 - 5.50 mmols/ltr, which is damn near normal.

I'll be the first to admit that Glucotor2 will not work for everybody. Barron himself says as much, but I'll accept odds of a 90% + success rate any day. And no, it's not a substitute for a healthy diet & a sensible exercise regime. It's just one more weapon in our armoury against impaired blood glucose control. I'm not an alien from planet Zog, so presumably my physiology is subject to the same laws of physics & biochemistry that operate in the bulk of the World's Type 2 population. On that basis, don't you think it might be worth a try? After all, what's to lose, except for a few BG mmols?
As for how quickly Glucotor takes effect, I can only cite and be informed by my own experience. As you probably know, there are two standard tests that diabetics should carry out on at least a semi-regular basis in order to monitor their BG levels, namely 2 – 2.5 hrs after the main meal, and the 'fasting' reading taken before the 1st meal of the day, and preferably after 12 hrs of 'nil by mouth'. Glucotor's main impact is on the 1st of these tests, since it is specifically formulated to be taken in conjunction with food. It's effect is to depress the 'spike' in blood sugar that often follows a meal, especially the main meal of the day when you might have slightly over-indulged yourself. In my experience, the effect is immediate. After my very first dose, I recorded my 1st 'normal' BG reading (5.3mmols/ltr) just 2 hrs after a celebratory restaurant lunch. I was totally blown away - just could not believe it. That was my best result since being diagnosed, and whilst a skeptic might dismiss it as a 'one off', I have been able to repeat this result on a continuous basis ever since, in time-honoured scientific fashion which requires duplication of results before their validity can be accepted.

My last HbA1c (which covered a period that was only partially Glucotor-assisted) was 5.9%, just outside the normal range. Even my diabetic nurse commented on my 'excellent control'. I didn't let on where the credit really belongs - too smug and mischievous to reveal my 'little secret'. So I just smiled & nodded in agreement. Apart from which, in my experience mainstream medical practitioners are generally dismissive of remedies that fall outside their field of knowledge or expertise, so what would be the point? But if she ever asks me directly how I'm managing my BG so well, I'll be more than happy to put her in the picture.

I am not a shareholder or in any way affiliated to Mr Barron, so I have no axe to grind or vested interest to protect. And, furthermore, no one was more surprised than I as to the effectiveness of this natural remedy. Some basic surfing of the net should return countless more testimonials even more glowing than mine from equally satisfied customers. In light of the foregoing, I am absolutely amazed that this remedy has gone virtually unnoticed by this forum. Can it really be the case that virtually all users have never come across this product? If anybody has anything else to add to my observations, favourable or otherwise, I would be very interested to hear from you.

That's quite a testimony, loquat . . . and if you break down the components of this incredible pill, I think you will find our forum members are not entirely ignorant of the medicinal properties of cinnamon, bitter melon, nopal, and many of the other ingredients in Glucotor-2. Thank you for your glowing review and I wish you continued success with it.

Hi Shanny,
Apologies, I didn't mean to imply that forum members were ignorant about the ingredients of this....well, to be a bit more precise, capsule rather than pill.

The sentence quoted above was specifically written with reference to the forum where this review was originally posted rather than this one, & I'm afraid it's just a case of simple laziness on my part that I did not tailor it more precisely for this forum. Trust I haven't given too much offence to the well-informed members of this forum!

Regards from the UK
