In my current vitamin supplement (Avon's Men's Complete) I'm getting 240 mcg of Chromium (as chromium brown rice chelate). This supplement my mom just sent me has 200 mcg of Chromium (as Chromax Chromium Picolinate). Combined, that would give me about 350% of the USRDA of Chromium, in various forms. Do I need to worry about that being too much? Most of the information I see says I shouldn't worry if I'm under a thousand mcg a day. But I'm naturally worrisome.
So the results of a blood test that I trust came back, and I talked to Doctor Lin. Triglycerides are uncomfortably high, and my fasting blood sugar was at 116. After I talked about the changes I'd made, and the lack of response I saw, she suggested (a) continuing with the changes (b) reducing the amount of white sugar/white flour/white rice I ate (c) starting a program of glucosage.
