I brought my postprandial glucose down nearly 30 points taking Vital Nutrients inositol, Now ALCAR, and Now silymarin. I had tried Swanson inositol a year or two before, by itself, and it made no difference. I used up what I had of the inositol and and ALCAR and ordered Protocol for Life Balance inositol and Doctor's Best ALCAR. I have been feeling rather poorly and, without a diet change, have been gaining weight. I checked my glucose - 111 again. I am also currently on antibiotics for a Staph infection (again). Is the problem the antibiotics? The infection? A difference in quality of inositol and/or ALCAR? Or is everything in this disease an unreliable crapshoot and the supplements never helped in the first place? I am not sure if my severity is affecting insulin resistance or if insulin resistance is affecting severity. Or maybe it is something else entirely... This is so frustrating; do you have any idea of what could be going on?
