Welcome,
You have come to the right place for friends and answers. I did try the cinnamon pills and they did help with my numbers. Ask your doctor any questions you might have. Ask here and everyone will be willing to help as best as they can.

Welcome to the community! This is a great place to find all kinds of ideas and thoughts that maybe you had never considered before. As Lady Di says, always talk to your doctor, but at the same time, don't be afraid to try things out. You never know if it will be what works for you. The cinnamon can cause tummy trouble so start slow. One thing I do know for sure, a cinnamon burp is much more pleasant than a fish oil burp. LOL!

We're so glad you found our site too. You will find a ton of good information and a lot of support from our members. I caution you, however, to remember that we are all people like you dealing with our diabetes as best we can with the help of our doctors. Please be careful about taking everything you read as being accurate or something that will work for you. Before starting any new medication - even if it's just an over-the-counter drug - check with your doctor first to be sure there will be no adverse interaction with anything else you are taking. We all are happy to share what we know and what has worked for us - or what our doctors have advised. But your doctor needs to be your first source of information. Make a list of things you want to ask him/her before each visit, so you'll be sure to get the answers you need.

You don't say how long you have been diabetic or what medications you are on, but I hope you have a good doctor that is advising you and helping you control your diabetes.

I look forward to seeing you on Diabetic Connect and getting your input on your experiences.

Sound advise, LadyDi. We are all so different and get so excited when we discover something that has helped us, we forget that it might not work equally as well with others. My "Gem" of advice is swimming—-I have been diagnosed as type 2 for over 3 years, and mine was so erratic, but not really TOO high, not over 235, but the swimming seemed to help smooth out the abrupt ups and downs, but our pool is closed during the winter, so if there is a gymn of sorts, that offers swimming the year around, GREAT! Any exercise is good, but I love to play in the water, so it didn't SEEM like EXERCISING—-haha—Best of Luck!! Pat R

I love swimming too, Pat, and that is fantastic - and fun - exercise. That's a tip that can't harm you, but will improve your numbers. I guess you could overdo it, so still probably good idea to discuss with your doctor. I need to get back in the habit/routine of swimming!
