    I had a 196 reading...the highest ever! I felt bad, physically & it scared me. I have my treadmill by the back door in the garage. I took my timer & got on the machine & started to walk on "fast burn" for 20 minutes. Rested a bit & checked my sugar....169. Rested 15-20 minutes & went back out on the machine for 15 minutes. My reading was140. I felt much better. I also drink at least one glass of water after every session on the machine. I'm controlled by diet & exercise only. Exercise WORKS! - by TRYTHEBEST
    Try the supplement Gymnema Sylvestre, available at GNC and other health-food stores. It is used in Asia as a natural way to lower blood sugar, and in some animal studies has actually helped regrow cells in the pancreas! It has almost no side effects although it does have a bitter taste, but no after taste. It is not a substitute for other diabetes medications, but it is an aid. Ditto for cinnamon, green tea and spinach. - by DITA_GREGORY
