I am new at this, after being overweight for about a 6 months I joined a gym to start working out. BUT..I found out today from my fasting blood test my sugar level was 285, thats scary. Since I am new at this does this ACV stuff really work? I plan to work at losing 50 lbs in the gym. I know it will be tough but I know I can do it. I just hope all these claims about ACV is correct.

Hi, I'm a diabetic, overweight, Had a hysterectomy, and do NOT do hormone replacement, have suffered from yeast infections on my skin, not in my vagina, ever since I had the Hysterectomy, i am 40 years old, I have been in so much pain, I was ready to go, throw myself overboard if I could find a boat. I went to (ask.com) typed in yeast infection it brought me to this web sight, and thank GOD IN HEAVEN, I tried 3 cups apple cider vinegar store bought and 2 cups idozied salt with half tub of water and soaked for 1 hour. While drinking a glass of water with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, it helped me so much, it is a true Miracle! By drinking the apple cider vinegar it has lowered my blood sugar by 20 points, which is great cause I run about 250, on my blood sugar count, I can't thank you all enough for sharing your stories, I know you have all been in much pain as I have but, you have helped me so much. THANKS AGAIN, and GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU! and May we all be HEALTHY once again.
I read about Apple Cider Vinegar online so I tried it. The first day my sugar level lowered from 235 plus to 110. I am taking two table spoons in a 1/4 glass of water, this is a miracle remedy to lower sugar level. I have not taken any metformin etc. for nearly two weeks. I am to have my lab test done next mid April 2008, let's see what the results shows! My diet is besan (gram flour) and soya flour pan cakes with sour cream and salad (onion, cucumber, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, celery, lemon juice, bitter melon and Habanero and lite salt) twice a day and boiled tilapia fish in the evening. I am very happy with ACV, I just ordered 12 (32oz) bottles of ACV with the Mother, Organic and unfiltered. This will remain in my cupboard always! Thank you for having a wonderful informative website. God Bless!!

I am a Type II Diabetic and I am 43 years old. I have been of Medication for 3 years now and I am managing my Diabetes by eating a healthy diet and exercise. I am writing to commend you folks and tell you that Apple Cider Vinegar works wonders in terms of controlling my blood sugar levels, its amazing. As awful as it tastes the benefits are truly amazing. Start of with 1 teaspoon and record the results and take as many times as needed otherwise you may lower you blood sugar levels to low.

I am a 44 yr old female with Type 2 diabetes, HBP and osteoarthritis. I had almost given up on myself until 2 months ago. I found your site and started taking ACV hoping for relief from arthritis pain (2 tbs 3x a day mixed with apple juice). The first 3 days were rough, I felt pretty bad. Then I started feeling better. Not only has ACV helped ease the arthritis pain, but it has also lowered my blood pressure and my blood sugar levels have also dropped! My average was 135 and it is now 108! I've even lost some weight! I feel like I have a new found energy and my sleep patterns have improved! I don't have food cravings anymore and my complexion looks great too. I can't say enough about how ACV has helped me. I have told several of my friends about this site. They too are having success with many of the remedies posted here. May I also say that I started Black Strap Molasses at the same time (1 tbs once a day with 5 oz milk). My period was very heavy with lots of large clots and lasted for almost 2 weeks. I was always weak and light-headed during my period. I am happy to report that my last period was only 7 days! The first 3 days were still heavy but it tapered off to normal. The light-headed feeling is gone too. I am so glad I found this website. I feel like I am becoming the person I used to be when I was younger and I am very happy with the changes.

Rather than mix my ACV with baking soda, why can't I just brush my teeth afterward with baking soda? That's what I usually use for toothpaste, anyway, often mixed in with Tom's no fluoride toothpaste.
Since reading about how AVC helps with blood sugar levels, I've been drinking it with water. I've also noticed a decrease in migraine headaches, and it seems to help my asthma. Also, if I've just eaten a bunch of sugar on a craving thing, I follow it up with AVC in water, and I feel better about my binge, mentally and physically.

MY BLOOD PRESSURE WAS 140/90 AND MY SUGAR WAS BETWEEN 112 & 120. I STARTED ON THE VINEGAR. SINCE I CHECK MY BLOOD PRESSURE AND SUGAR EVERYDAY I KEPT A RECORD. AFTER THE VINEGAR MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS NOW 127/70 AND MY SUGAR IS BETWEEN 80 & 100. IT WENT DOWN AFTER ABOUT FIVE DAYS. IT ALSO HELPS CHOLESTEROL.

I've had diabetes for several years, put on insulin some months ago. Sugars still hitting average of mid-300's all the time, day and night, A1C well over 8. BP about 145/90, cholesterol low 200's. Started raw, organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with "the mother" couple of months ago. Unbelieveable. With absolutely no other changes, sugars hover about 100, A1C 6.0, BP 122/80, cholesterol 122. No more joint pain- I quit my daily dose of 2 Aleve tabs. Now I'll begin backing off insulin and other meds to see if I can maintain the good numbers. I am dumbfounded by this, and people think I'm nuts. My doctor is absolutely ecstatic. I use a "shot" of the ACV (I use _______s) in about 6 ounces of ice cold purified water morning and evening. (Make sure you mix the bottle well before pouring, to blend in the sediment on the bottom of the jar).

Apple cider vinegar: Recently been diagonised with diabetes, put on medication, low carb diets and GI plus daily exercise I still found it very hard to obtain reasonable sugar levels. Been frustrated about the whole issue I started reserching into it until I found the effect Apple Cider Vinegar has on your digestive system (reduced gastric dumping rate) and its effects on glycemic levels.
To cut a long story short, I started taking ACV in water with every carb loaded meal, the result has been stunning, I don't take tablets any more. On the same hand I don't go crazy with food, I always watch the GI, GL and never miss the ACV no matter weare I go.
THE IMPORTANT THING IS IT MUST BE TAKEN WITH THE CARB LOADED MEALS, hope you get the same results I have.

I started taking Apple cider vinegar 3 weeks ago. 2 tbl. 3 x day. The only health issue i deal with is hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) The acv has helped any drops in my sugar levels. As a result I have lots of energy, my moods swings are very few and I am enjoying life again. My mother started on it 4 or 5 weeks ago and said she's had so much energy that her house has been clean for weeks. We both struggled with keeping our houses clean (a family curse) and now we can keep up with it.

Apple cider vinegar has been a prayer answered from God to stabalize the recent spikes in my blood sugar. For the past 11 years I have successfully controlled my Type 2 diabetes thru diet and supplements. About a month ago I started drinking 1-2 tbsp in a glass of water right before a meal, and I have noticed an amazing difference, with readings below 101. I feel more alive with fewer aches and pains. I am concerned about the effects on my dental health and plan to brush more frequently. But on the whole, I feel like I have been given a new outlook on life. It is very important to me to be in control of my health and keep my diabetes under control. Now with ACV, I can go on and enjoy life! God bless.

I'm one of those people who believe that drug companies are not out to cure diseases but to come up with drugs to ONLY control them so we're stuck buying them for a lifetime. After my doctor had me wear a blood pressure device for 24 hours I was told my blood pressure was high and he put me on (Micardis?). 2 months later on Superbowl Sunday, Feb. 5-06 I had a stroke. I wish I could give you numbers and readings but I don't have them. 14 years ago I was told I was a diabetic and needed to control it with diet which I never really did. Anyway after the stroke my doctor had me go get my blood tested for almost everything sugarwise. He told me of bad numbers on most everything. Then a friend told me about Apple Cider Vinegar and although it's not the tastiest thing I started taking a drink of Heinz ACV every morning. That started about 6 months ago. On my last Dr. appointment going over another blood sugar test he wanted to know how much I was exercising because my blood pressure was good and so were all my sugar numbers plus I'm almost under 200 pounds for the first time in ??? I'm at 203 with a high of 232 and haven't changed a thing in my lifestyle. I haven't exercised on a regular basis since giving up softball at the age of 46 four years ago. ACV has made a believer of me. Now if I could just pour it on my head and regrow my hair.

Vinegar has lowered my glucose readings. It has worked so well, that I, too, thought my moniter was broken. I happen to love vinegar, but even if I didn''t.....so what? It's only two tablespoons in 1/2 glass of water. I use it now after every meal. The results are unbelievable and so well worth my health. Please tell everyone. I cannot believe I stumbled upon this amazing, inexpensive aid in lowering my blood glucose levels.

Acv is great- everyone should take it! However a diet free of refined sugar and flour-all pro- cessed foods and exercised are a must. To obtain and maintain the best health one has to do a whole lifestyle change. No smoking, moderate alcohol and at least 8 hours of restful sleep, avoid bad stress.
