Nelson, Thanks a lot for so many advice in this board. Do most HIV+ have slightly diabetics? Most complex supplement have chronium inside. Chronium should not be taken for Diabetics folks according to one website. Do you have any comment on this subject?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Chromium has been studied in diabetic patients up to 1000 micrograms a day. Insulin resistance decreased considerably. Most supplements have 200 micrigrams a day. No data exist on the effect of chromium on protease inhibitor related insulin resistance, however.

light headed, every second of the day for the last 9 years.
Good news!!!
