I'm just hoping that by adding the supplements I don't have the big fluctuations in my numbers. I haven't been able to exercise like I want to due to my sciatic nerve flaring. Trying to keep busy. I really want to get another 10 pounds off by Christmas. Just a crazy goal. I'm trying to work whole grains and beans into my program. Just don't want to overdue. Right now I'm battling olfactory hallucinations. My sense of smell is telling me that I'm smelling diesel fuel. It's been going on for about 2 1/2 weeks now. It is continuous and can get very strong smelling. The longest it's lasted is about 7 weeks. Very frustrating. I start sneezing and get nauseated. So, what do I do….I eat more because I can smell the food and taste it. Crazy but hard to control. Nothing I can do until in goes away. Some people smell lots worse stuff. Mine usually stays with diesel fuel or several different types of burning smells. I've walked the house many times thinking something is burning. Kind of freaks my husband out. Some day I'm going to tie a diesel fuel soaked handkerchief around his neck to give him an idea of what it's like. I bet he wouldn't last an hour. Sorry to complain.

Well, my husband smelled like diesel fuel on his clothes from working in his shop, so I understand the smell. You are not complaining. I know when I eat fish, it makes me smell strong and in my physiology class I learned that fish makes a sulphur smell in the body. But I don't see that supplements will lower the blood sugar any. It may help with dieting if you are deficient in something, however. I also had to smell the awful hair coloring he used, in bed, so I finally slept in the other room.
Sounds like you may be allergic to something. It is a mystery to me. Still, the numbers fluctuations come from food. Balance is a big goal in meals, with protein, veggies, fruit, grains, and dairy. Even my snacks are balanced. Dorisena .

I had olfactory hallucinations for years, smelling campfires. I have now lost my sense f smell entirely. Bummer..
