Hi Rydra, I found your mentions of low blood sugar attacks, DHEA & shaking so interesting. I have this comment in a book Analytical System of Clinical Nutrition by Schenker, DC -published in 1999 "Cr [chromium] is intimately associated with pancreatic function/glucose metabolism via its role in glucose tolerance factor. Cr deficiency results in decreased glucose utilization, plus hyperglycemia and/or hyperinsulinemia. One of the effects of hyperinsulinemia is blockage of DHEA production, the adrenal hormone that has anti-aging properties and protective properties against clumping of platelets, certain types of cancer, certain types of elevated cholesterol, and certain types of elevated blood pressure. Cr supplementation will decrease blood sugar levels in diabetic patients "
