Type 2 Bs Lowering Tip

This Sparked Me!

I regularly take Alpha Lipoic Acid with my supper to help lower my blood sugar. This is the meal I have a hard time controlling my carb intake. Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant that lowers your blood sugar as well as being great for you. Be aware though it can lower your blood sugar as much as 50 points. I have lowered my AIC from 7 to 5.8 using this supplement.

    I am studying for my PH.D in nutrition and had to study antioxidants. I hadn't heard of it before this and now use it daily. It is safe and effective. Never stop your meds though without your doctor's permission and without monitoring your BS. I still have to take a low dose of Januvia to control my BS. I don't take more than 400 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid a day. (2 capsules daily). I have used more on a special day that I had really high blood sugar. But not on a regular basis.

    How did you find about about it and is it healthy? sounds lot better than Metformin.
