Both of my parents are poorly controlled diabetics on insulin. I should say "were" poorly controlled, because 1176 mg of Choline per day (in the form of choline bitartrate) has dramtically improved thier blood sugar control before and after meals and especially morning glucose. The effect was completely unexpected and occurred immediately. These are people in their late 60s that have had excursions of glucose into the 300-400 mg/dl range at times. They have literally halved their insulin dosages!
The only explanation I have is that the increased methylation from the choline has acted as some sort of epigenetic switch on hepatic gluconeogenesis. This would explain the vastly improved morning sugars. One of them now routinely has sugars in the 60-70 range in the mornings while the other is around 115. Even after meals they dont shoot as high as they did previously.
Truly amazed by this and have called Linus Pauling Institute and LEF to try and get somebody to follow up on this with addtional research. Have not been able to find anything on PUBMED about this kind of effect.
Any ideas on how to get the word out to some serious researchers?
