trust me, if these things like pycnogenol and grapeseed extract really
worked, the doctors would be encouraging us to take them...not to say they
Diabetics in France have been using pycnogenol for years.....there was an FDA
study of a derivative of it....i think it was one I was on for a while, but it
was inconclusive and these two are expensive. Yes, antioxidants are supposed
to be good for helping your body get rid of the free radicals (which also
apparently cause wrinkles)....A, C and E, I think, are the most common
me, the bleeding subsided when I raised my target range from 80 - 120....and
made 100 -150 my goal.....it is the lows that "can" cause the bleeds...and it
is a short step from 80 to where I feel LOW and after running 80-120 for a
while you tend to lose sensation of slightly lower blood sugars....
Are your little bleeders due to neovascularization (new vessel growth)? If
so, then as I understand it, these are the ones that "may" get a little
worse....these NEW blood vessels your eye has created are weaker than normal
pressure "may" ause one to bleed....a nightmare, headboard banding sex,
traffic, weight lifting...watchign a scary movie...bending over and tying your
shoe...all these things caused bleeds that first 2-6 months i was on the
pump....once i learned that the lsuper tight control could be a cause, I raised
target....BUT YMMV and the long term improvements are what are important I
suppose....personally I hated the bleeders....
