Chromium Picolinate may help keep sugar lower

My sister is taking chromium picolinate  and  cinnamon extract to help lower her blood sugar.   Unfortunately she is also using insulin.  
I've used both for years and just use diet and exercise to control my adult onset diabetes: no insulin or oral medications.   There are differences of opinion about chromium and cinnamon's usefulness in controlling or lowering blood sugar. 
There is a a lot of free information on the internet.  All I can say is educate yourself by reading as much as possible.   
Diabetes is a sneaky disease.   Get smart and get to know it.
