The biggest effect we've seen though has been in my Dad. He's diabetic and has heart issues and has had a lot of problems related to the two. After a month on the Protandim, my mom told me that they'd noticed a definite decrease in my Dad's blood sugar readings. They had been consistently better. When he went to the Dr this month, for the first time in years his A1C reading was down to a normal range. It had dropped 7 points since his last appointment. They didn't tell the Dr about the Protandim, hoping that given another month they would continue to see his #'s hold and would tell him then. They didn't want to jinx it or find that it was just a "fluke". That was until today. Today, I got a call that my Dad was being taken to the ER because his blood sugar was TOO LOW. It had dropped too low and despite grabbing a piece of candy and having it go back up, it had dropped again. It seems that they may actually have to decrease his insulin now because the Protandim is working so well.

Hearing this and taking another look at their website, I'm considering giving it another try. I talked to my brother about it this afternoon and he said he did learn recently that you shouldn't take/eat anything that has any of the ingredients of the Protandim within 2 hours of taking it (including Turmeric and several other things I was already and am taking). So that may be why it didn't seem to have much effect on me. That said, it's hard enough to remember all my pills the two times a day that I take things, so I don't want to add a third pill time to my day. I may be able to take it at night though and avoid that problem, since I currently take pretty much all of my supplements in the morning. Even if it did nothing for me, it's helped my family, and I'd say that helping 3 out of 4 people who use it is a pretty good thing and a really good return. If you are willing to try alternative meds for a chance at improvement, I'd definitely say give this one a try.
