  1. I`m in great mental strain as I started looking through this “Gαjοjο Fivu” (Google it) simply because my A1c was 11.5% and my blood sugar level has climbed to 300. The figures was two months ago. I strictly adopted “Gαjοjο Fivu” (Google it). And that made it happen. I couldn`t contain my joy as I discovered that my average PP sugar level was lowered to One hundred forty…
