A friend of mine told me about a supplement and claimed that it helped him lower his fasting blood sugar count by 8 points and that his energy level was up also. I figured what the hell, I’d try it. I didn’t really see much in results at first but after about 3 weeks my fasting sugar count started to inch down and my energy levels were starting to rise. Now after 2 months of steady use my fasting sugar count is down a solid 12 points. My diet is a little better than my friends so I figure that might be the difference between his results and mine. I now have ordered a bottle of Liver Cleanse to add to the mix. I’ll post more when I’ve used it for a couple of months.

Why Ace Inhibitors Are Preferred In Diabetes – RELATED QUESTIONS

Are ACE inhibitors advised for all diabetes patients?

Patients with diabetes and normal blood pressure who have a normal urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio (or=5.6 mmol/L) are not advised to use an ACE inhibitor or an ARB for the primary prevention of diabetic kidney damage.

Why do ACE inhibitors boost potassium levels?

Inhibitors of ACE and ARBs decrease proteinuria by decreasing intraglomerular pressure, hence decreasing hyperfiltration. These medications tend to increase serum potassium and decrease glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Monitoring serum potassium, creatinine, and GFR levels is thus essential.

What causes ACE inhibitors to induce hyperkalemia?

Reduced aldosterone concentrations, decreased transport of salt to the distal nephron, aberrant collecting tubule function, and increased potassium intake are the primary processes leading to hyperkalemia with ACEi/ARB (Table 1).

How can you simultaneously control diabetes and hypertension?

All I know is after taking this product for 6 months my A1C dropped from 6.8 (that I struggled to get that low) to 5.7 without a struggle. By that I mean I watched my diet but also had a few ooops days with an occasional cheat and shocked my Dr with my A1C test. Since then I have also had finger checks that average out to 117-120. Iā€™m still careful but also thankful my numbers are so good!
