Hello Everyone, has anyone ever heard of Glucocil? And if so, have you tried it, and if so did you get any results? It is suppose to help keep your BS from spiking, I believe.

Wow interesting results I tried glucocil and it def didn't give me those results. Id be careful getting off your meds. Did you tell your dr about that? How long have you been off your metformin and on glucocil alone?

I was only on the Metformin for a short while but I was sick immediately! nausea and head twirling - almost like I had LOW blood sugar…but I was checking it and that was not the case…I then emailed my doctor's nurse and told her that I was NOT taking the metformin and that I was on the glucocil…I still have to watch my diet - not too much alcohol or high carbs…I find that if I stay with meat and raw or steamed veggies my BS is good!

hi queen. Have you tried the one I wrote about below? I tried glucocil and it worked with me but I also felt the price was a bit high. I bought the 3 month supply of CinnaLife and the bottles came out to around $25 each. i remember glucocil was like $45 depending where I would get it. I think I got it cheaper at GNC one time with a discount offer they had but I can't remember too well. I've been on Cinna now for about 5 months, its worked really well for me. they just sent me a promo code of 20% off with CINNA2015 if you are interested and money is an issue. good luck! the link they put on the email to enter the promo code is www.cinnalife.com/order

hahah… you sound like me months back. I think i was taking 20 something pills a day not counting my prescrip meds :( it was horrible, plus I have terrible gag reflux (sorry TMI?) lol. thats one of the reasons why I was looking for a multivitamin/supplement that had everything in one that I could take once a day and be done with it. I'm super lazy too so managing sooo much was an inconvenience for me. take a look at the supplement panel on their site… https://www.cinnalife.com/supplement-facts They listed EVERYTHING on it! let me know what you think? you seem to be in the know of things, maybe you'll have good feedback on what i'm taking :O

I am curious about this as well. Was diagnosed a type 2 approximately 10 years ago. Taking oral meds until recently when my oral meds caused me to have pancreatitis. I'm a patient at MD Anderson for an unrelated matter (polycythemia), but recently learned that my oral diabetic meds had the side effect of giving me pancreatitis. Currently on one daily shot of insulin (20 i.u) after being taken off all oral meds. Looking for alternatives. I exercise, ride bike, and try to eat as healthy as possible. Blood sugars (fasting) are varying from 178, to the hightest yesterday of 289. Wondering if the glucocil really works. Thanks for any ideas, replies, comments.

I too am new to this site and just ordered a bottle of Greek olive oil from selectgreekproducts.com and my husband is getting a bottle of cinnamon + chromium for me thanks to your posts. My last a1c was good at 6.5 but for some reason my triglycerides jumped to 437 from 213 9 mos ago. The other lipids are almost normal, I don't know what happened! Also my bun is 35, up from 19, and microalbumin 115, up from 7.1. I was a vegetarian for 5 years until I stopped eating grains/gluten 6 months ago, now I've added organic chicken just to have something to eat besides legumes, eggs, vegs, berries, nuts & seeds. I am very concerned about my kidneys, have appt with a new Dr. Tuesday, he's an integrative holistic M.D.. hope he'll be helpful. My previous 3 Dr's were old school. I live in a remote rural area and don't have a lot of choices. Got lucky when the new doc moved here recently and this blog. Anyone have any thoughts on my kidney's? TriG's?

Anonymous, It's because you are getting a stronger dosage of the same ingredient from two of them instead of one. They don't have their dosage levels high enough for each product individually to be effective. Combine them and up the dosage and you get a better result.

Hello, from what I have been reading Glucocil appears to work for individuals who have high spiking.
I have been reading the post here and I am interested in the Greek herbs. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with Type 2. It took over a year to get control my B/S spiking. In the last 6 months I have started on the Blood Sugar Solutions plan and moved on to the Paleo plan. I do Organic and grass fed as much as possible, but then it is FDA labeling. Since I have mostly controlled my B/S spiking I have lost over 20 lbs. Still need to lose more so I am intersted in the Greek supplements.

3rd day on Glucocil. Too early to tell if it will work. Still getting readings from 180 - 225 with late afternoon spikes up in low to mid 300s. c1a was 8.5 Have been taking cinnamon for awhile, even before diabetes diagnosis, for my heart. No side effects noted but must not be helping BG with these numbers.

For the first time in ages, my BG did NOT spike into the 300s after dinner yesterday. Highest was 275 near midnight (I'm a night owl). Yeeaah! Cautiously believe/hoping Glucocil is taking effect and numbers are on their way to normal.

Thanks, I have read those reviews and they do sound wonderful. However, their Privacy Policy, clearly states they will sell your personal information (or use it in any other way at their sole discretion ) gathered from your use of the site… or that they gather from your computer with logs/cookies/etc. So I'm not about to put anything such as a credit card on there.

Hello Militarymom, I have just started (day 3) on Glucocil. I don't have any readinds to post at this time. I subscribed to the offer seen on FB to get the 15 day trial for $5. I see some have good results and some don't.I currently take Metformin, Januviua and Insulin. Like a lot of diabetics I'm not the best patient and don't always eat the right foods or stay current on my meds. Diabeties runs in my family. My sister has an advanced case and is now on dialysis 3 days a week due to kidney failure. I don't want to get to that point. Hope this helps me get in the mindset to take control of my disease. I get discouraged and don't stick with the plan when my readings are high.

Hi I signed up for the Glucocil trial and did not realize that by signed the "I agree" I was allowing them to charge me 64.00 per month. By the time I received the trial shipment my 18 day trial was practically over. The 18th day fell on a Saturday and they are not open so I could not call them that day to cancel so Monday I called. Got a really rude person on the phone and imagine this they could not catch my shipment. They said I had to receive it and then turn it back in and then receive my money back in 10 days. I have seen this before and most of the time you don't get your money back and you don't have the product or they deduct a re-shelving fee. This is all too bad because this product has worked. It has worked so good my doctor has cut my Metformin amount in half. I was taking 850mg in the morning and evening. What I discovered was that I wasn't taking the Metformin right. My prescription said 2 times per day but I should have been taking it after breakfast and dinner. When I started doing this with the Glucocil my sugars dropped to 80's and 70's. This morning 90 because I have cut the Metformin dose in half. I am hoping to get completely off the Metformin but because of the this company I stopped the automatic deduction from my checking account. I have found the product cheaper than what the trial company offered it for. So yes it worked but the company's practices were not upright.

I have been taking Glucocil for alittle over two months; my fasting sugars have gone from the 250's to below 200. My insulins had been adjusted with little affect. Since starting glucocil i average from 113-190…which for me is amazing…In the year and 1/2 that i have been diabetic my sugars had never been below 200. My A1C ;has gone from 11.5 to 9.3 after only 2 weeks of Glucocil. I have not lost weight, actually I have gained weight :( but I am so happy with Glucocil and what it has done for my fasting sugars. I will continue to take Glucocil and see if it continues to help my sugars.

I have type two. Doc kept upping insulin, I kept gaining and sugar never got under control. I discovered two supplements. Glycosolve and Glucocil. I take them both with meals and it is a miracle. I still need my meds but I don't take as much insulin because my sugar will go too low especially if I excercise. But now I can eat and know that my sugar isn't going to spike. I'm enjoying life again. A swear by these products however I think they work synergistically. Each one helps a little but together - it works. I have never been able to control a1c until now. Highly recommend and I feel great !

I seem to be highly insulin resistant which is why I use both. I can take insulin and nothing happens — When I add the two supplements my sugar drops to normal very quickly. It also seems to help maintain over time if I use it consistently. Good Luck. Diabetes is a beast - I now need to control Cholesterol. Looking at Amlamax and Nakkotinase.

Hi Macklebee1,
I went off Crestor and tried red yeast rice. My Dr was not happy I did this, my Cholesterol without taking anything was 230 and with crestor it came down to 160. With just taking 2 tablets in the morning and two at night, my cholesterol was 158 with my LDL 93. I bought it at costco (brand, Weider) I found this works great. I have other people at work and friends taking it and they are normal without taking and statins. Dr's do not tell you that Statins can cause you to become a diabetic. Good luck, hope this works for you
