    This high dosage will keep you up at night

    Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Chromium Picolinate 500 MCG 500 MCG - 100 Capsules:

    I am very cautious with my supplement and will only add one at a time so I can isolate any reactions. I used to take 200 mcl in the midafternoon when I felt tired from blood sugar drop. I haven't used it for a while so I went to Vitamin Shoppe and was told that they no longer make 200 mcl, only the 500 mcl. I took one at lunch and couldn't fall asleep until about 3 a.m. This is very unusual for me, so I continued for the next two days, but same thing. When I stopped taking the product, I was able to sleep as normal. I now have a handful of mixed nuts and that brings my sugar back up. I female, 5'5"and weigh 125. Apparently this dosage is way too high for me. I caution consumers to look at the dosage on all products and decide if it is appropriate for you if you are not a 6', 200 lb. male

    Chromium Picolinate Lowers Platelets!

    By Formerly Diabetic Rich

    from Long Island,NY

    About Me Assorted Health Concerns, Health Conscious

    Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Chromium Picolinate 500 MCG 500 MCG - 100 Capsules:

    At the suggestion of a Vitamin Shoppe clerk, I started taking Chromium Picolinate because, she said, it would help lower my blood sugar and also help me lose weight. When I had routine blood work done four months later, my physician referred me to a hematologist because there was a deep drop in my blood platelets. One of the indications of such a symptom is the onset of leukemia; my grandfather died of leukemia a number of years ago. The hematologist reviewed my list of current medications and, when he got to the Chromium Picolinate, told me to stop taking it immediately: "It lowers platelets!" I followed his directions, and that symptom disappeared. Now, why would a vitamin store clerk think herself qualified to recommend such a product without knowing its common side effects? I'm giving this product one star only because the system won't allow one to assign "no stars." Incidentally, in the months since this episode, I have learned that the best way to lower one's blood sugar and HbA1C, lose weight and GET OFF ALL INSULIN is to get to a gym. Forget the quick fixes.

                this product works great. I give this to my husband to help with his blood sugar. When he has something that is very high in sugar I just give him 1 or 2 chromium and it helps to keep it from sky rocketing.
