The only thing I could imagine it doing is making you less stressed. Since stress can raise your BG I guess that's helpful? I wouldn't count on it.

Marijuana helps with the pain And it allows me to do the things I use to do like working with my hands I suffer from severe Neuropathy in my hands and feet Marijuana allows me to live a normal life again it works better then my prescription meds the only bad thing is that it is illegal here in Indiana, your best bet is go to a dispenser and ask what type of strain would help you the most. Bless you.

the way I see it is that marijuana does not help diabetics first of all it makes u eat so how does it help a over weight diabetic 2nd it raises chances of other complications in the long run plus blood work will show u r a drug addict this is my opinion

It not for diabetes it's for Neuropathy pain and if you don't suffer from Neuropathy then you wouldn't understand.

I tried it once. My BG dropped like crazy! But wasn't entirely sure it it was the marijuana or too much insulin. I assumed it sped up my metabolism hence munchies?

Have you tried it again?

No, it freaked me out too much. Sugars dropped to 2mmol and had troubles swallowing
