From West Milford, New Jersey, USA:

Has there ever been any research done on the trace mineral chromium and how it affects blood sugar levels in type 1 diabetics?


Not as far as I know. The research has been done on those with type 2 diabetes, although some were on insulin. I would not recommend its usage for those with type 1 diabetes.
