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.

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...
Does anyone have any ideas on getting supplies like insulin and strips without insurance? I have been spending so much money!! Help!
Any T1's with tattoo's? My endo discourages even though my A1C is fine.
Hi everyone! Fairly new diabetic - T2 2 years go but possibly heading to insulin soon. Just wondering where everyone is located? I'm in QLD Australia...
Anyone with Type 1 diabetes able to speak with me for a story for @abcnews ? firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone have suggestions for where to place a Dexcom cgm sensor? I would normally use my abdomen, but because of pump sites, it's pretty beat up there. Has anyone tried the back of the arm? The idea freaks me out but I may try it.
Just a quick question to the type 1 diabetics. How long after a hypo does it take a person to get back to normal. My boyfriend had one 2 weeks ago and I think I'm pushing him a little.
For those that take insulin with your meals, how do you go about taking it when you're out at a restaurant or other social gatherings? Do you take it out in front of everyone or do you try to find a secluded spot to take it? How does it make you feel when you take it, knowing people are curious?
Fastest low treatment?
Today my daughter got her first A1C check since being diagnosed in December... It was 14.5 on the 19th of dec, and today it was 8!!!! I'm very happy about this!
