Dinah,

I know we have talked about diet and supplements on the Health board, but I am just wondering if you would be willing to try a couple of supplements that are supposed to be effective in regulating blood sugar. The two that I think may be useful are Taurine and chromium, both of which are said to help stabilize blood sugar. They both come in gelcap form, so they wouldn't not be difficult to swallow. Anyway, here is some information on both supplements. Take good care of you Dinah.

Benefits & uses of Taurine are:

Plays a role in decreasing the development of cataracts.
Useful in the management of chemical sensitivities as a powerful sulfur donor which removes foreign material & oxidized chlorine.
Useful with malabsorption of fats.
Important for proper bile production & fat metabolism, thus the ability to reduce body cholesterol.
For anxiety, agitation, hyperactivity.
For insomnia.
Depression.
Vegetarianism.
High blood pressure.
Certain heart iregularities.
Congestive heart failure.
***Diabetes, potentiates & improves the action of insulin.
Alcoholism.
Gallbladder disease.
Macular degeneration/retinitis pigmentosa.
Immune problems.

Studies have shown chromium:

***Improves glucose tolerance (the ability of your body to remove sugar from your blood to nourish your cells) in both those who are diabetic & those with reactive hypoglycemia, thus stabilizing blood sugar levels.
Can increase HDL (the good fat) levels in your blood.
Can decrease blood levels of cholesterol.
Can increase energy levels.
Can help calm anxiety.
Athletes, the elderly, & those with blood sugar disorders may need the relatiely large dosage found in this product. Otherwise see the products Citrichrome or Glucostabil.
