Deep concerns over the proliferation of alternative blood glucose control supplements. I am sure many people fall for these to avoid prescription drugs and insulin. Have only seen these recently and not seen mentioned on the forum. Recently I have seen a lot of online ads for the "Diabex Patch" and "Insulin Leaf Powder" that claim glorious results in Diabetes control and significant reductions in blood sugar levels. Claiming scientific research that backs their claims. Facebooks ads and other online sites. Diabex main ingredient is Metformin, according to any information I can locate and ads post that users state they got rid of their medications. A patch you place over your navel. Really? Insulin Leaf Powder claiming made in USA and available on one of those "monthly subscription plans". Both sold directly (I presume just resellers) and on Amazon. I'm not looking for alternatives but they should be discussed/mentioned on the forum.
