This works nicely. I have this remedy to a friend with diabetes and he reports that it works well. He uses this daily now.

Shock horror! I was diagnosed with type 2 after I kept getting boils on my back. After I went to the Doc he said I was diabetic, and put me on two metaformin tabs a day, plus statins asprin and BP. tablets. After buying a blood glucose monitor, and checking my fasting blood sugar in the morning, It was always around 7 to 8 the doc said it should be around 6.After an evening meal it would go up to 8 or nine. So I decided to start drinking ACV with meals. I had the same meal for two days. The first day the lowest I could get the Blood glucose reading, was 8 after a meal, and getting up in the morning it was reading a bad 8.9. So I drank about 8 oz of water with some ACV about two capfuls. Two hours later it was 7 and by lunch time when I had another dose it was down to six. Two hours after the evening meal when I had another dose usually its 8 plus this reading, shocked me a bit as it was 5.8. So something very interesting is happening. So I thought I would report in with another positive. incidentaly I stopped taking the statins as the muscle ache was getting hard to handle. But the ACV has been reported to lower the tryglicerides, so its a work in progress.

I started taking apple cider vinegar, liquid or tablets and apple juice plus 1-2 tbsp. of coconut a day for some time, I was having problems with my Gall stones. I went to see my Dr. about the gallstones and he said that he wanted my blood tested for Diabetes and my thyroid. (I have had type 2 diabetes for some time), I went to the earth on the computer and they suggested that I take 1/4 of a cup of apple cider vinegar (which equals to about 8 apple cider vinegar tablets) and 1 cup of apple juice a day. Well, time passed and I didn't hear about my test, so I called, they said that every thing was OK, I told them that I had diabetes, she said well you don't have it now, this was about two months ago. Yesterday, I went to my eye Dr. He said that I didn't have diabetes in my eyes anymore. I was taking the vinegar and coconut oil for one gallstones and it healed me for diabetes. So praise the Lord.

I found your website in June, 2011. For nine years I have had type 2 diabetes. On July 18, 2002 I went into a diabetic coma and my BS was 1171. By the grace and mercy of God and the Doctors I survived. I have been on insulin for nine years. On June 19, 2011 I started drinking 2 glasses of water, 12 oz each with one tablespoon of acv, I sip it with a straw during the day. As the days went by I started feeling better and within weeks I noticed I had to use less insulin. Now, instead of taking 3 to 4 units of humilin I only need one with my breakfast of egg and toast. In the last few days, this being July 23, I realize I need less of my night time insulin--lantus.

My BS dropped to 54 last night and I had to drink a regular soda pop to bring up my BS. This morning my BS was 129. On July 29th I have a Doctor's appointment to get my A1C test. I will write back and let you know the results. My last A1C was 7.1. I am feeling like my old self and have more energy and a better attitude. I will be 67 years old in Sept.

God Bless Earth Clinic for this site and all of you who have contributed your thoughts, ideas, questions and replies. One more thing, I have been oil pulling since March 11, 2011 after my daughter told me she was doing it. I use organic coconut oil. I have not missed one morning of oil pullling. Again, thank you all, especially Earth Clinic. I appreciate you so much.

I agree with you on oil pulling, its just very sad that when I discovered oil pulling my dentist almost pulled out most of my teeth, but for those who got problems with Gums and still have a lot of teeth I would suggest oil pulling for at least 20 minutes( gurgle for 20 minutes) in the morning and you will never have cavities and soft gums at all. And for those who have ulcer take 2 teaspoon of VCO (virgin coconut oil) and within two weeks you can see a big difference you will be completely cured, no relapse

ACV has really done wonders in stabilizing my blood sugars. Prior to using the information I found on this site about ACV my fasting blood sugar were running about 250 to 290 even though I didn't eat anything after 8 pm. I don't drink sodas, no white flour, use stevia, eat lots of veggies, chicken and fish. I started off with 2 TSP. ACV in vegetable juice before I went to bed and noticed an immediate drop the next morning. I am also on metformin 1000 AM and PM and actos 45 in AM. I've increased my ACV to 2 TBS twice a day in vegetable juice as my morning drink and evening "cocktail" and 2 TBS added to a liter of water which I drink at work. I've been trying to reduce my prescription med but it seems my numbers increase slightly when I do that so I'll just leave well enough alone right now. This morning my FBS was 114. Also, before this I also suffered from hypglecemic seizures. I'd be feeling alright, start to feel a little off kilter and then wake up on the floor or in the ER. Fortunately this never happened while I was driving but I gave up riding my motorcycle this year because I was so afraid I'd have an episode while on my bike. Since I've started taking the ACV I've been able to feel the physical effects of my blood sugar dropping and take steps to bring it back up. I've also notice a slight improvement in my eyesight. This website has literally saved my life. Thank you so much

Apple Cider Vinegar was used to help aid diabetes. Apple Cider Vinegar does help a little in treating diabetes. It has helped to keep blood glucose levels in a normal range for someone who does not have diabetes, for example. However, it works best in this case in combination with the current medicine for type 2 diabetes. It was taken without taking medicine but the glucose levels were a little too high, however, again, in this case it works perfect in combination with current medicine for type 2 diabetes. It is taken once in the morning and once at night, each dosage the same amount. Two tablespoons of liquid apple cider vinegar with anywhere from half a cup to a full cup of water. Though it is now taken with crystal light/koolaid instead of water because it helps the flavor a lot. It does not taste bad at all. Hope this helps.

I must say when I heard about Apple Cider Vinegar I was curious. I went out the same day and purchased a bottle. I'm a type 2 diabetic and I must say that I feel a lot better since taking it, my monthly cycle has changed to a more normal cyle. It used to be very heavy the first two more.

I also started the pulling oil...that too is great. My mouth feels so clean all day. Just started it so I haven't really seen anything major, but I will report back. Thanks Earthclinic.

I started using Acv about a week ago, glucose reading are between 110-135. Fantastic! If you have diabetes you must try it! 2 tablepoons during meals, mixed with a glass of water.

ACV for diabetes. I take 2 tablets of metformin in the morning accompanied by 1 actos..also hyzzar for B/P. In the evening I again take another metformin. Now.. Per each meal I take two tablspoons of ACV _____s organic unfiltered ACV, with a 1/4 cup of very cold water. Do this for at least two weeks straight before you start testing your sugar two hours later.. it will perform the extraodinary. My sugar levels on the average are extremely high, but this has helped immensely in lowering my numbers. You must continue to be faithful in your diet and at least test your sugars early in the morning and or in the evening.. For testing of the ACV, make sure to test two hours later but give the vinegar a chance to get into your system and detoxify your body.. It will help lower your sugars but don't do an over kill on the eating and expect miracles. If your a diabetic, you must learn to eat right and take care of yourself.. Good luck. Sherri

I have type 2 diabetes since 2003. In the monrings my Blood sugar would be at 117 to 135. I am on Metformin 500 twice per say. Sine the past 2 full weeks I have been taking Molasse Blackstrap and ACV 3x days. In the mornigs my blood sugar is 80-81 mid mornings 70-71 - evening 60-65. I have not taken metformin for past the last 2 weeks, and accordingly with this result I am not going to reverse to metformin- It work wonders for me. It's a real blessing from the Lord. Since I have been taking it I have place various family members on it,
This is great - just great. Never mind the taste - just drink it- it's your health.

recently, I could not walk on my left foot. I was unable to put my foot on the ground and apply any body weight too it.I tried everything;anti-inflammatories, etc. I even bought $400.00 pair of shoes. I was desperate. I started taking apple cider vinegar and within two days major relief. I am typeII diabetic. I can only assume I was very acidic and the vinegar countered that. I was taking vitamin c awhile ago but stopped for some reason. with the vinegar I also have more energy. I have not tested my sugars but feel 100% better.

I am a Type II Diabetic and I am 43 years old. I have been of Medication for 3 years now and I am managing my Diabetes by eating a healthy diet and exercise. I am writing to commend you folks and tell you that Apple Cider Vinegar works wonders in terms of controlling my blood sugar levels, its amazing. As awful as it tastes the benefits are truly amazing. Start of with 1 teaspoon and record the results and take as many times as needed otherwise you may lower you blood sugar levels to low.

I will tell my husband to take apple cider vinegar on a daily basis. I had a mailer sent t to me about Diabetes & acv. The first time I tried it, I took my blood count before dinner. We ate, pasta, bread, chicken, & to top it off, a pie made of yams! Well, we finished dinner & began to clean up, & started to get shaky, I said to myself "no way", I was feeling so sick that I took my blood count again, it was 62! that was only less that was 45 minutes. try it take blood count before & after 1 hr., it really works, buy organic, unfiltered, keep in frig. for palatability, it doesn't burn like regular acv. THANKS!!!
