@dorisena I too put cinnamon on my oatmeal and mix it into my yogurt. I use Ceylon cinnamon which is difficult to find except on amazon and in Whole Foods — the price at Amazon just got reduced too. Ceylon cinnamon is called “true cinnamon”. It is milder tasting than other cinnamons so you can use more. The other cinnamons can be harmful in large quantities, particularly to the liver. My sister puts cinnamon in her coffee too.
I had an appointment with my endocrinologist on Monday. I asked him about cinnamon and he felt that the amount you would need to make a difference would be considerably more than most people could possibly use. He is an extremely well regarded doctor but I’m not sure I agree with him on this. I have been using quite a bit of the Ceylon cinnamon and my A1c was 5.8 despite not following a low carb diet very well. I guess it is possible that I “reversed” my diabetes since I have lost a very considerable amount of weight.
