Helping save my life
Posted by 5311564494270820135 on Mar 18, 2013
I am SO thankful that I found this proudct. I have already recommended it to everyone I know and everyone I meet! I have had type 2 Diabetes for 8 years now and my Blood Sugar's ALWAYS run between 220 and 250. Every single day of my life. I've had 4 or so reading up in the 300's. I've only had 1 reading in the 100's in eight years. It doesn't matter what I eat - or don't eat - they are always high. My DR recently gave me a prescription for Insulin. I don't want to take insulin - I've worked in the Healthcare Industry for 15 years and most people who work in a Hospital DON'T take prescription drugs, if they can at all help it, because they know they have short and long term side affects and dangers. I always try to take natural suplements or vitamins. I'm up to 4 Metformin a day (2000 MG) and my Blood Sugar's are STILL 220 - 250 every morning. My Mom gave me a Women's World Magazine and I read about Bitter Melon in there. I researched it and wanted to try it. I raised my daughter on my own and now helping to raise my grand daughter, I don't have alot of extra money. I found Bitter Melon in different stregnths, ranging from $ 8 up to more than $ 25.00. I bought two of this bottle, this brand for $ 8.44. After two weeks of taking the suggested dose - I had a Blood Sugar reading of 176. I thought my meter was malfuncting. The next morning, 188. A few days later, this morning my Blood Sugar Reading was 165. I have SO much energy. After a full day at work I go home, clean my Refrigerator, Walk the dogs, Clean up the house, do laundry. I was constantly SO drained every day with the higher Blood Sugars. I will NEVER be without Bitter Melon. I am beyond THRILLED with this product. It WORKS. DR's should be prescribing this to their patients! I can't wait to go to the DR Next, and have my A1C lower and have my DR thinking I'm on Insulin and can't wait to tell him NO, I'm taking Bitter Melon! Highly Recommended! Having lower numbers and feeling so good makes me WANT to eat better, but I haven't really changed my eating habits either. I am a Vegetarian and don't eat meat, however.

I believe this is helping to keep my sugars in check, but I take the dosage on the bottle about 4 times a day with other herbe supplements that I have already found proven to work for me. If I stopped this herb I had higher numbers.

My husband has diabetes type II and is taking meds (sometimes he needs a shot of insulin too)This concentration of bitter melon lowers his blood sugar. It is a really good buy.

Greetings from Wollongong Australia. Many thanks firstly to iherb for the excellent service. As a chronic fatigue sufferer with an endocrine disruption and an auto imune problem; I have found this product to have been extremely benificial resolving insulin resistance and it was actually prescribed by an alopathic physisian.
Excellent Product and Service

This product has literally saved me from going on diabetic meds. Previously diagnosed as pre-diabetic-- I started taking this bitter melon product and my glucose levels have dropped DRAMATICALLY! Average of 50-60+ pts. and remaining steady. I take after eating meals (majority low-carb)and it keeps my blood sugar from spiking. Fast, reliable service. Recommended this site to my sister.
