I am not on meds but consider myself a candidate for pre-diabetes. I have to carefully monitor my diet to keep my fasting blood sugar levels from rising. I noticed that since taking Gymnema sylvestre my fasting levels dropped from 100-115 to 88-94.
I know Gymnema sylvestre works for lowering blood sugar in type 2 diabetes. Some of the research indicates that it repairs and helps promote growth of pancreatic beta cells so it may be helpful for type 1 diabetes also. All I know is that my fasting blood sugar levels are lower.
