Diabetes and Cinnamon

I am pre diabetic, my naturopathic doc from SCNM put me on 500 grams of metformin and since I am an herbalist, i hated the idea but took my metformin 6 months past and my numbers were still high and so she doubled my dose to 1000 g per day....6 more months past and numbers didnt change. I began ( unbeknownst to her) supplementing with a tblspoon of cinnamon per day in divided doses 3 times a day and after 2 months, my Ha1c dropped so low she feared that I may too low! She lowered my dose of the pharmaceutical and told me that my pre diabetes was reversing FROM the cinnamon! OH HOW I LOVE HERBS!!!!!! A TRUE TESTIMONIAL FROM CARRIE GRAY!
