Dear dianalafond, Thank you for writing into dLife with your question about supplement use and safety. When people want toads a supplement to their regimen, I first inquire whether they have discussed the product with their physician. I am not aware of any supplements that will positively affect type 1 diabetes. If you community has a poison prevention center, they may be able to tell you more about the safety of this particular substance. Again, I urge you to discuss the use of any medications not prescribed by your physician with him/her prior to purchasing the product.

I have T2 and tried garcinia. After 2 days I had to discontinue because my sugars went high and wouldn't come down. I don't know how it would affect a PWDT1.
