Well I'm old too, and very late getting here to welcome you, Marty . . . :D

Glad to have you with us and I hope you'll come around often. You have approached the supplements issue with great care and documentation, and have learned a lot in your quest for knowledge.

Take care & thank you for joining us!

This thread is kind of old, but better late than never.

I do take alot of supps and vitamins. Some have worked well for me others not so much.

At first I went at it with a shotgun approach, didn't work.

What I had to do was break down all of my problems and deal with them one at a time. Digestion, insulin resistance, insulin metabolism, do I have enough insulin, insulin release.

I then researched what supp would help me with an individual problem that I had.

I take Bitter melon, helps control liver (similar to MET)
Vanydal Sulfate, works like insulin
Gymnema Sylvestrae, helps metabolize glucose
Mag, Zinc, Bx, V-D, Chrome
L- Arginine
Dandelion, helps with GLP-1 release, the signal for insulin release
The biggest impact was fiber from Ground Flax seed and resistance starch.

I think there is more, can't remember, might need to start taking ginko again.
