I'm really interested in this, too... I have the classic insulin-resistant body shape (look 7 months pregnant even when not pg at all
: ) and my fasting blood sugars are always too high. Not diabetic high, but definitely not healthy.
Now I'm 7 weeks pregnant and my blood sugars are already worse than ever and I'm fully expecting to be put on insulin... which I don't really understand how that could help, since although my insulin levels haven't been tested... I'd pretty much bet they're sky high. I have plenty of insulin. It just doesn't WORK. I have many signs of overall inflammation and I'm guessing those would probably get even worse if I were injecting insulin???
Eating a pretty darn low-carb diet is supposed to help, but that still doesn't directly address the resistance issue. Cinnamon, alpha lipoic acid, and magnesium are all supposed to help increase sensitivity to insulin. I've been taking plain ol' cinnamon (and sometimes the fancy CinnaForce) for quite a while with no apparent effect. It really helps my diabetic mom, though. I recently started taking extra magnesium for other reasons, and it doesn't seem to have helped my blood sugars at all. I just started alpha lipoic acid, so we'll see how that goes.
