Oh, gosh! Pam should remove the Brewer's Yeast comments. I'll send
her a note. There has been a lot on that here on the FHL which you
can find in the files. Those Brewer's Yeast are from long ago
before the action of the Brewer's Yeast was known. It was first
tried perhaps a dozen years ago, I'd guess, if memory serves. The
chromium in it is good for diabetes but BAD for insulinoma as per
recent info from vets here.
