Garcinia Cambodia and type 1 diabetes

Day 3 of taking Garcinia Cambodia and the warnings are starting to ring true. Lucky for me I am keeping my dextrose sugar tablets close by. I was hypoglycemic with low blood sugar most of the day again. I even started the day with an english muffin and peanut butter to get the sugar fix going.

Insulin is down to 25 (started at 30). No other insulin at all during the day not even with meals. I only took 1000mg of garcinia gambogia in the morning… None at lunch so I hope my blood will not drop low in the night again as it has been… That is a bit scary waking up and stumbling down the stairs to see 1.9 on my blood meter and shake to get sugar bottle open and tablets in my mouth.

I am not giving up on this. The test will be weigh in on Friday to see if this stuff is at least helping me lose weight. I must admit however diabetics should take at their own risk and that risk could be high if you dont keep sugar on you all day or dont wake up in the night when you are low.
