    If the information you have been given is that coprinus comatus has a specific medicinal effect, then I would expect that effect is quite small- as far as I'm aware, there aren't many foods that actively *reduce* blood-sugar by that much. However, mushrooms in general are an excellent healthy food that won't raise your blood sugar when you eat them
