What I remember from Nourishing Traditions is that cinnamon doesn't regulate insulin - it increases it. That's why NT recommended putting a dash of cinnamon in sugary desserts, to get your insulin flowing to handle the sugar. In the case of a person whose body already overproduces insulin (like a diabetic or prediabetic), that sounds like it wouldn't be a good thing.
