Let me preface this by saying that I don't need any assistnace in searching out the validity of claims or statements made in response to my question. I honestly want to see the kinds of answers I get to a simple question. I'm a well informed lay-person, and a skeptic by nature, and I'd like to see who rises to the challenge and what they bring to the table without any sniping. Please? Or at least start another thread if you must, but let's see what happens in this petri dish... I'm looking for theories, devices or substances that can lower blood sugar. That's it. I have no interest in starting a fight. I want to see what, if anything, has merit. Thanks. Mnesbitt "If you don't count the knife wounds, it's been a pretty good day, thanks."
