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 hate vegetables, however since I have started eating greens regularly every morning (green smoothies) my bs has never been lower. I used to be in the 300s now its pretty consistently around 125-155. By filling up on green vegetables the carbs aren't even a concern.
