  1. High blood sugar is becoming a plague of our time. And if in the 20th century it was believed that this is a disease of the elderly, now this violation is observed even in children of kindergarten age. I am over 50 years old and I too have not escaped this trouble.
    While studying medical materials on this topic – how to break out of the vicious circle of insulin resistance, I found information about such an unfamiliar plant as Gymnema Sylvester.

  2. And yet, the reviews on Amazon were in general awful.

    Should I stop my metformin or reduce it gradually.
