    I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH DIABETES ABOUT 2 YRS AGO. ALTHOUGH I HAVE NEVER SEEN MY GLUCOSE LEVELS ABOVE 175, I AM LOOKING FOR A PRODUCT TO HELP ME MANAGE MY DIABETES. I HAVE DONE A LITTLE RESEARCH ON GTF CHROMIUM AND AM NOT DISCOURAGED BY MY FINDINGS SO FAR. I DO FIND THAT TWO HOURS AFTER MEALS. MY SUGAR LEVELS WILL RETURN TO NORMAL. (UNLESS OF COURSE I TOTALLY OVER INDULGE, THEN IT TAKES A LITTLE LONGER FOR THE LEVELS TO DROP BACK TO NORMAL) I AM GOING TO TAKE THIS PRODUCT. AT THIS POINT, I GUESS IT WON’T HURT TO TRY.

    I have been taking Chromium GTF for about 4 weeks. I tried it because I was having adverse side effects to Metformen. It made feel worse than my diabetes. After a month of being on it I still had extreme malaise & was dehydrated from having explosive diarrhea (who can live like that)! The GTF chromium has regulated my blood sugar wonderfully. I have had no adverse effects from it. My blood sugar was in the 300′s and now it’s never higher than 127! I’ve lost some weignt & I have more energy now. I’ve also changed my unhealthy eating habits but I think the Chromium has helped me have the strength to make the changes! I can’t tell anyone to go against their doctor, it’s your body & your health, decide for yourself…but doctors dont know EVERYTHING!

    Hi Elizabeth
    i just started taking Chromium GTF too , aboout a week and half now, like u i have seen that i have more energy and started eating better, i do not have any more cravings. I am not sure if this is because of it. I have not talked to my doctor yet about taking it. but i will next time i see him, my only concern is if it is safe to take it everyday. As i researched online, it seems that it might change the cells in your body and it is been linked to cancer in high dosages. Anyway i will be taking for now until i see the doctor. I do not have diabetes , but my doctor wants me to have the test for it. I thought this supplement might help me with the test.

    I was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and was told to take Januvia by my MD who I trust her dearly—My blood sugar level was 491—I investigated GTF Chromium and in 11 days I am at 169 without the Januvia—but my face did break out in a rash (similar to a heat rash-sunburn feeling) All is gone now—U need to judge for yourself
