Resolved Question:

Hi, I'm prediabetic and read about chromium picolinate, so I started three weeks ago taking it, 200 mcg daily. I'm also taking Nexium for GERD. Lately I'm experiencing palpitations. How is this all related?

Thank you.

Dr. Singh :

Hello,

Customer:

Hello

Dr. Singh :

Chromium picolinate is controversial in use. What is known at this time is that it can cause heart palpitations and gastric reflux. Therefore, I would recommend that you stop it's use since you are experiencing the palpitations and already have a known diagnosis of GERD.

Dr. Singh :

Do you have any further questions?
