Re: Fenugreek

Just one word of caution. I take 2 twice a day. Any more than that and I cannot keep my blood sugar up... to the point that I passed out one day from it. Went to see our midwife mentioned the fenugreek and she said to ease back on it. So should you be prone to low blood sugar I would watch your dose.... otherwise I love my fenugreek

OMG I totally forgot about the BS issue! No wonder I was crashing the last few days! I take it before AF starts and I always have BS issue's anyway's before I start and kept wondering why it was so bad lately! Now I know! Thanks for the reminder!

I had no idea that it effects your blood sugar. Could this be why I super carbo-crashed after a holliday party last week?
It seriously felt like I'd been drugged, I was so tired.
I took 2 capsules literally right before we walked out the door to go to the party, it was day one, my 2nd dose.

Is there any way to get around this? Something I should eat more or less of?
