    Chromium is an herbal product that has been reported to reduce blood sugar. If you are interested in taking chromium with insulin, it is important that you monitor your blood sugar to prevent the risk of low blood sugar levels. If your blood sugar levels are too low, contact your provider and discuss changing your dose of insulin.
