Insulin Alternatives

Has anyone here ever tried bitter melon or prickly pear cactus to regulate their glucose?

Hmm, those sound pretty interesting, do you mean consuming them along with taking normal insulin injections to control glucose?

Oh yeah in addition to insulin...I think these may give some people the "honeymoon" effect but haven't found anyone that takes them.  My son's endo would surely laugh at me for suggesting them and he is too young to try anything different right now anyways.  Just a thought for the future I guess, but it could be total bs too.
