It should be used, however, IN CONJUNCTION WITH proper diet, exercise, and weight loss
. I have been experimenting with controlling my recently diagnosed Type II diabetis with diet, exercise, weight loss, cinnamon, green tea and "Metabazon" a supplement made from Amazon Rainforest botanicals (bountifulhealing.amazonherb.net). I absolutely do not want to take any drugs. So far it's been working beautifully.
