My sister has hypoglycemia and her doctoer recommended her to take supplements with chromium. Should she take it daily? What about the benefits of chromium?

It is not recommended to use chromium to control blood sugar levels. There is also no proof that chromium supplements can treat or prevent diabetes.

It's quite easy to get safe amounts of chromium by eating brewer's yeast, calf's liver, American cheese and wheat germ.

Also many scientists say that people who take chromium picolinate supplements may suffer health problems rather than improve their health. Chromium supplements may damage cell chromosomes which are the blueprints for a cell's function and reproduction.
