Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Sugars were well controlled until recently. Now A1C has jumped from 5 to 7.5 and am getting daily readings from mid 200's to mid 300's. Eyesight has been affected within last week. Wondering if it could be a med interaction problem or the addition of the Green Tea and African Mango or the Niacin and statin added within last month.
