Manerix because I don't think i need it any more,
but I will be monitoring how I feel very closely throughout the next
few months. My annual checkup in December indicated no major problems
and my HbA1c has been under 6% for 9 months now. My annual eye checkup
showed no deterioration or diabetic complications.

I believe it is of benefit, because of cost I've had to stop taking
Lecithin. I'm investigating ways of adding Alpha Lipoic
Acid and CoQ10 back into my diet. Manerix
at 300mg/day seems to be working for me and I returned to work on
June 10. I've discovered that taking one Metformin pill just
before bedtime (usually around 10:00pm) helps to lower my morning
fasting level (from around 8 to under 7mmol/L).
Serzone to 300mg/day but stopped later in month and started
Manerix at 300mg/day. Started taking 120mg of Starlix
immediately before lunch and dinner (didn't have much effect before
breakfast). Started using Viagra. Although I believe they are
of benefit I've had to stop the following because of cost: Grape
Seed Extract, Bilberry, Alpha Lipoic Acid, CoQ10,
Ginkgo Biloba, SuperVision, & Ginseng. Increased
Vitamin C from 1500 to 2500mg/day and bioflavonoids
from 500 to 1000mg/day (to make up for those lost from Grape Seed
Extract & Bilberry). Increased Folic Acid from
0.8 to 2mg/day (to try and reduce my Homocysteine
level). Increased Chromium from 300 to 350mcg/day. Decreased
Biotin from 2100 to 100mcg/day and Vanadium from
150 to 50mcg/day.
Serzone at 100mg/day and increased to 200mg/day after 7 days.
Stopped St. John's Wort (because it wasn't working!)
has a new owner who has, unfortunately and very short-sightedly in
my opinion, stopped free online access to their supplement database;
also, many of the webmd.com links are no longer valid. I've changed
most of my supplement links to http://www.supplementwatch.com/,
Increased Biotin from 100 to 2100mcg/day. Reduced EFA
from 2 to 1tbsp/day. Reduced Saw Palmetto from 640 to 320mg/day.
Reduced Vitamin C from 2500 to 1500mg/day. Increased Ginkgo
Biloba from 120 to 160mg/day. Reduced Grape Seed Extract
from 200 to 100mg/day.
Kava after reading a Health
Canada Advisory against its use because of liver toxicity concerns.
Stopped Actos and restarted Metformin again at 1000mg/day.
Saw Palmetto at 640mg/day. Stopped Metformin and started
Actos at 15mg/day. Reduced Vitamin E from 1100 to 700iu.
Reduced Selenium from 250 to 150mcg/day. Reduced Inositol
from 254 to 152mg/day. Reduced Ginkgo Biloba from
180 to 120mg/day. Reduced Alpha Lipoic Acid from 340 to 200mg/day.
Started 81mg/day Aspirin. Stopped GlucoBalance, Glucosol,
Biotin, and Glutathione. Added note on avoiding use
