I posted this in a couple of threads and I feel it bears repeating for those who wish to know about the affect of taking Cinnamon on your A1C when You're a Diabetic . . . Below is the actual text from one of those posts . . .

* * * * *

WOW - More Diabetics in the house . . . Who really knew, well none of us until YOU decided to come out of the closet too (AND - NO I don't mean if You're "Gay" or not . . . ) . . . I think most people here know I am Diabetic too - so hearing about others doing what is right for them is great . . .
Just to share and let you know you are not alone here and to tell You all about something that has helped "Me" . . .
Diabetes is also a heredity characteristic in "My" Family (Grandmother died of Diabetic alcoholism; Mother Type II then Type I & Insulin the last year of her life, Older sister Type I from the start & on Insulin {Very Bad Off}, and Older Brother Type II and all find out within the same year - '98) . . .
Besdies all that is physically wrong with "me" and "my" other health problems . . . I found out on "My" Birthday in 2004 and was diagnosed as being "pre-diabetic" with an A1C of 7.3 (and in reality, to me that is like being "pre-pregnant" - either you are or your are not . . . hopefully there are some that know what I mean . . . ) . . . AND within a year it went up to as far as A1C of 9.8 so I was now diagnosed as Type II Diabetic . . . My problem was not "Sweets" as in candy and desserts, but "fresh fruit" (One of "My" BIGGEST DOWNFALLS - LOVE FRUIT) & Pepsi (at least 2 - 2 litters a day . . . I know - I know - My BAD ) . . . SO after giving up eating a lot of Fresh Fruit everyday & the "Pepsi" (almost as hard as it is giving up analogs right now . . . again I Know - I know - My BAD ) I lost almost over 40 lbs (weight still fluctuates) and I am able to maintain "My" Diabetes fairly well . . . I get my blood test every 3 months (don't do test daily) am back down to an A1C count that falls between 6.8 - 7.2 which given "My weight and size both "My" Doctor & I are very happy with (especially given everything else I have to deal with physically, including Cholesterol problems) . . .

So "WHY" am I telling you all this, well to let you know that I am able to do this all with the help of a little KNOWN Secret too that I want You to know about . . . It just might help YOU too as it has "Me" . . .

Besides all the medications I take for Diabetes & Cholesterol (which have been helpful) there was no Big Changes till I started using "Cinnamon" (Both in Supplement form and powered what you just buy in the store) . . . I accredit "Cinnamon" in helping me not only maintaining "My" A1C to the lower levels - it has also help with "My" Cholesterol . . . it has increased "My" HDL from 28 to 37 (almost got it above 40 Now) & lowered "My" LDL from 174 to 59 (which is very Good) - And to top it off "my" Total Cholesterol Levels from 249 to 129 . . .

I take either a 1/4 to 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon mixed in with something I am eating or 2 "1000mg" Capsule/Tablets with every meal - plus 1 "1000mg" in the morning & at night . . . AND it has been working for "Me" . . .

SO check it out for yourself - all you have to do is a search on the Internet about "Cinnamon - Diabetes & Cholesterol" and read up about it . . . I do hope this information is useful & helpful to others as I have found out it to be for "Me" . . .

EDIT:
Thanks to a reminder from "IThrenodyI" post . . .

DISCLAIMER:
EVERYONE SHOULD ALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR FIRST . . .
I am not a medical professional - I am just sharing what I know and found out works for "Me" . .
