I have had a very interesting experience after visiting my doc this week. I showed her my results with these tabets i am taking called Cinculin (cinnamon extract from the bark of the tree). The damn thing has dropped my numbers so significantly that even I am in shock. I have NOT taken any insulin for about 2 months now and my numbers are within the 120-140 range and still dropping. In fact sometimes, it is too low especially in the mornings. Yesterday it was 51… I had to hastily devour some fruits to bring it up as I was feeling very weak and rightly so.
Now the morning I went to see my doc, I had just eaten (oates) so the reading was high. Still she looked at my meter and said..these are good numbers'. Yet she told me that I must continue to take the insulin because that's the only thing that works with diabetics and that's the only way to control my numbers!. I was in shock because I showed the woman the numbers and how they had dropped and were being maintained.
Anyway I decided to humour her and the evening after I had eaten I took half the dosage. Needless to say I got up with a blood sugar so low, it was frightening. Now why would she tell me to keep taking the insulin with such good numbers? Do these doctors get a commission from keeping you on medications?. Not only are my numbers good, but my blood pressure is the best it has been for ages. Plus I have resumed my excercises?
What is going on here. I am going to check my AC1..so we will see. I think she needs to do some more research and keep up to date as I have heard so many people who were put on insulin, taken off and continue to control their blood sugar. Your thoughts? Suggestions?
