Doctors had to take me off metaformin as my kidneys were shutting down. So what to do? Did a little research and discovered cinnamon. It helps regulate blood sugars, is good for the heart, and good for people with chronic lung problems. So far, blood sugars are stable.

I have added Cinnamon to my diet on a regular basis… Keep your doctor informed about every thing you do…

Before I was dx with D2, and my bs was getting a little high, I asked my Dr. about cinnamon. She didn't know if it helped or not, but said she thought it was harmless, so thought I should give it a try. But I was due to have surgery on my wrist which I had broken, and she advised me to stop taking it for a 2 weeks before that. She wasn't sure how it would affect my blood. I tried it after my surgery, but found it gave me acid reflux. So anyone with GERD, please take it a little at a time.

Hi you do need to talk to your doctor. Iam not sure if you are saying that the metformin was shutting down your kidneys or your kidneys were shutting down on their own. Yes cinnamon my help some people. But you do need to have your bs checked talk to doc.

I took the cinnamon capsules for a while, but my gerd (acid reflux) really complained. Had to stop it.

Hi Donna ,we got recent infomation from the web red delicious apples ,and raw honey helps the gerd but 1st be sure your not got any allergies to honey,also only use a small amount so it will not raise your bg level,were not experts by no means,we got a paper copy coming on that e book so i'll update this when it arrives.
