I have heard many great things about cinnamon and chromium picolinate, as well. I don't get near as many sugar cravings when I am taking it, probably for the reasons that the article stated. I take the Swanson Vitamin version of this combination and it really helps me feel better overall. It is really reasonable priced. Here is the website, if you are interested:

Wow!, I read about cinnamon a while back and how it was used to treat many health issues, but I didn't know it could be used for insulin resistance. I'm going to try it out, I think it'll be easy to incorporate in my daily life 'cause I love the stuff!!

Yeah Metformin can really be harsh on your kidneys and liver I've heard. I think I am going to buy the cinnamon tablets and use them, as I am borderline diabetic. I hope you get some success with the cinnamon! :-)

Interesting, guess I'm going to look into cinnamon more.
As for the lactic acid, I think it was that...something to do with my urine and my kidneys that the metformin is messing with them and I should stop it.

Yeah it is supposed to keep insulin levels balanced in a similar way to Metformin. Interesting your lactic acid rose as well? They told me that they didn't think it was the Metformin, but doctor took me off anyway. I found this article.

Cinnamon

The same spice that heightens the taste and smell of apple pie can also help lower blood sugar. Much like chromium, cinnamon enables insulin to transport glucose past less-than-welcoming receptor sites and into the cells where it will be put to good use. In "YOU: Staying Young," Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz recommend a mere one-half teaspoon per day to increase insulin receptivity by 50 percent or more. Sprinkling cinnamon on oatmeal, stirring it in cottage cheese or flavoring hot tea are three easy ways to add more spice to your life.

Hi Cysters,

Any of you taking cinnamon found that the tablets or powder works better/worse, and how much do you take to stabilize insulin levels daily? Recently came off metformin because of elevated lactic acid.

Thanks!
