Question CLA and diabetes

Does anyone out there know if it's safe to take CLA having type 1 diabetes. I've read on many web sites that CLA is actually good for controlling blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes.
I just had a baby in July of 2002 as well have been diagnosed with a low thyroid about 1 month ago. I'm currently on medication for the thyroid problem but haven't seen much improvement in my weight. I've always been in good shape and I do workout regularly but since this thyroid issue I've noticed my weight increasing.
I went to a natural food/drug store and was told by the clerk that taking CLA will help with loosing weight and has no effect on the diabetes as well as the thyroid because it's a natural product. I was also told that I can get better results by taking a combination of CLA and ABS+.
If anyone knows from experience if these products are good can you please let me know asap.

Best to check with our physician.

CLA is something new to me so cannot comment. I thought at first you were referring to taking calcium, which is fine but after looking at my Bronson vitamin catalog I noticed the CLA is something else.
