Re: Bitter Melon
I got some in the mail, too. My DOG is diabetic and on insulin. His vet actually has him on Diabogen, which contains bovine pancrease, bitter melon & chromium. It seems to help him -- only way I can tell is he doesn't have as many accidents as he used to have.
However, I'd check with your doctor because some supplements -- such as glucosamine & chondroiten, which people take for arthritis, can actually raise your blood sugar.
