Hi - Need to question the group mind about using a cactus supplement.
I'm a hi-volume insulin user (as was my father); my "normal" insulin usage (up until now) has been (for an 1800 calorie/day diet) 80 units of lantus and 50-70 units of Humalog (much more of both if I "eat what I want").
I've started taking a cactus supplement that has just knocked my sugars into the ground! Now, for the same 1800 calorie/day diet, I find that my lantus is down around 60 units, and I can go hours and hours without taking any humalog. My humalog dose is now about 1/2 of what it was; I find it much easier to hold to an 1800 calorie regimen.
I can't be the only one to have used this stuff, what does the community say?
