I’ve been taking this supplement for a while now and I don’t know if I really believe the results anymore. Sometimes I do feel like it does help balance my insulin, but I still have moments in the morning when I feel my blood sugar dropping constantly. I have lost a bit of weight, but not enough to really feel like my body is adjusting well. My hair is slightly thicker, but again, might just be the new shampoo I have! I can’t trust my own opinion right now, but I’m also hormonal and depressed! GAH.
Naturally, I’m frustrated. I have been avoiding going to the doctor to get Metformin to help manage this, but I’m at the point where I think I want to give it a shot. If anything I’d like to compare how my body handles each pill and if the results are better with one over the other.
Have you taken Metformin? Was it for diabetes, or PCOS?
On another note - I had an unfortunate incident with the company that makes Glucorein HOP. Somehow they got ahold of my resident land line - a phone number I never give out due to privacy issues - and they spoke openly about my condition and asked how I was doing with the supplements. This is outrageous in my opinion. They speak to someone who it NOT myself about my condition, ask them to pass on a private message ABOUT MY CONDITION, and mention private matters to someone WHO IS NOT ME.
I called the company and left a message about how upset I was - they never called me back. I then went on Twitter and blasted them there. That did get their attention, but they wanted me to email the person who called and willingly shared personal information with someone who is not myself.
For this reason alone I advise you to think before taking part with this company. All big pharmaceutical companies are going to be slightly crooked, but this left me feeling violated, betrayed, and shamed. If you do want to buy this supplement you can do so through Amazon...maybe they won’t get your personal information that way… ugh. I only have three bottles left which is only about a month’s worth for me… UGH.
I just want to scrape out my insides and not deal with this anymore. Ya know? Uterus carrying people, ya feel me?
