          Chromium Picolinate Lowers Platelets!

          By Formerly Diabetic Rich

                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.
