Does anyone know if the stories about cinnamon and diabetes are true? Apparently half a tea spoon is really good for you?

It has never worked for my son & he's been a T1D for 6yrs now. We think it's something that got started. If it works for you then great. Good luck.

Won't work with T1 but may with T2
The study that got everyone sold on cinnamon was very very flawed. That being said, it doesn't hurt and if I put it on some bland foods I don't crave putting sugar or honey on them.
Coconut oil is a big help for me with the cinnamon
Ooooo! That's good to know :-)

I'm T2 did not work for me. I would also put a cinnamon stick in my tea.

I have a brand new Medtronic pump, CGM and sensors - I hated a pump... Would love to give it to someone!!
Looking for a "pay it forward" place. Switching pumps soon and will have a year's worth of unused supplies. Don't want to throw them away...
What insulin do the type 1s out there use? I've always used novolog (used to use levemir and novolog before pumping), but curious what others use and why? What's the fastest acting insulin out there?
Any T1's with tattoo's? My endo discourages even though my A1C is fine.
Hi there you guys;) are u there?
This one's kinda for the ladies, but I don't know maybe guy diabetics have this problem too? Do y'all experience frequent bladder and yeast infections? If so have you found anything that helps? Thanks
I currently ran out of ketone strips and can not get to any at the moment. Can I just use my actual blood sugar meter and just dip a strip into (tmi) urine? Need advice here! I'm high and feel sick!

DESPERATE for pump supplies! either silhouette or quick set infusion sets. no insurance and I've been trying to sell anything of value on Craigslist to come up with the money for them, but no luck!
Upgraded to the Dexcom G5 I have my Dexcom G4 W/ Share Transmitter (only) available for someone. Started using it late Aug so there is good amount of life left in it. Looking for $100 plus shipping.
