Has anyone tried this herb to help control blood sugar? My prescription benefits are running out, can't afford the Victoza anymore and don't want to take meds that will make me gain weight. Plus my dr doesn't like any of the free meds I can get at the supermarket except for the metformin.

Had never heard ot this herb, Laura. I looked up this herb on google, and found this website: The review at the end of the article said that their criteria for recommending it was for weight loss, and they couldn't necessarily recommend it.

I would worry about side effects it might cause. A natural product does not mean totally safe product. Foxglove is a natural herb, but its use can be deadly.

Should you choose to use that S.O. please use great care. We wouldn't want something worse to happen to you.
