    <font face="Comic Sans MS"></font id="Comic Sans MS">Good Day type 2 but working to contain it with exercise and diet - and Glucotor v.2 - has anyone any experience and is it like Melabic and Diaxomol? In other words money down the drain?

    Your input would be appreciated

    Hi Johnnyvee,

    I did some research into Glucotor as I hadn't heard of it before your post. My summary:
    - it contains all natural ingredients, many of which are believed to be beneficial to diabetics (but probably only in very high concentrations)
    - the makers claim it is better than metformin in reducing blood sugars - but I couldn't find one single plaudit from anyone who has tried it, which leads me to think it's unlikely to work
    - it is not on the FDA list of banned drugs, nor on their list of "false claims" supplements, but that could just mean they haven't tested it.
    - most of the ingredients are also present in Melabic and Diamaxol, just in different proportions.

    If you decide to try it, please let us know what results you get, whether good or bad.
