Ground flaxseed and cinnamon will help lower your blood sugar and your triglycerides. Try a daily breakfast shake with oatmeal, flaxseed, cinnamon, fruit (banana, apple, papaya, whatever) , water and skim milk in the blender. Tastes good and will definitely lower your numbers!

    I just recently 2 months ago start using flaxseed and wheat grem. If I think I'm going to stop by McDonald's and pick up one of their oatmeals; I will ground some flaxseed and put some wheat germ in a baggy and add it to my oatmeal.

    Be careful! Cinnamon can be a stpmach irritant and if you have an ulcer, eating cinnamon may cause pain. I know this from personal experience.
