Hi...my vitamin and mineral book says that our bodies only require the tiniest trace of chromium...50 to 200 mcgs a day. It is a 'natural' insulin regulator and makes the insulin more efficient at stimutalting the cells." That's about it...one short paragraph. It also states that chromium deficiencies are normally found in the elderly.
Honsestly? I don't know if I would persue this course of action unless this nutritionist gives you the numbers on her chromium level. If she does that, and they are too high, I would ask a physican about it. Personally, I would not rely on a nutritionist to put my child on some regime that a doctor has not approved. But that's just me.
