Jul 3, 2016 · Preventing diabetes: Questions about chromium supplements, chia seeds in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Thank you for your diligent follow-up. Having researched about the alpha lipoic acid, I’ve decided to continue with sprinkling three times a day to see whether inclusion positively affects my A1C.

However I can help others, I will gladly undertake. In fact, if you’re looking for any volunteers, I have a communications background.

Pre-diabetes can be stressful, especially if you’re thin and exercise. What else is left if not nutrition. Of course, a pancreas that celebrates lots of birthdays isn’t helpful.

We need to advocate for our own health. And I wish a doctor could be more of a nutritionist.

I don’t see any harm taking chia seeds, but I just don’t know the duration or amount, although I would imagine that 1 1/2 Tablespoons sprinkled over the course of a day would not encourage “furry animals” to take residence inside.

Colleen, thanks for your feedback and references.

As a prevention of Diabetes, will 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Chia seeds help? Any dangers?

Thanks for your response. I’ve been adding about a Tablespoon and 1/2 per day with meals of chia seeds. No supplement.

Any negatives?

I appreciate your support. Do you know whether chia seeds help regulate blood sugar?

Thanks for your articles. Fortunately for me, I’m not diabetic. But the older we get, the more we need to advocate for our own health.

I have found that chia seeds appear to be a high source of chromium and fiber.

I would prefer including seeds in my diet than a supplement, per se.
