Ann-your hubby is diabetic isn't he? I wondered if anyone else had diabetes on here. I've had it for 20 years and have gotten off all medication for about the last 6 months. How was by taking cinnamon. I take this daily before meals and my sugars are now fine. How is your hubby doing with his diabetes? Type 1? I'm type 2.
