I just lost 45 lbs on a vegan diet and decreased my type two diabetes meds down to only 1 500 mg 24 hour tab of metformin per day. a1c decreased from 8.9 to 6.8. Dr is amazed. I wonder if it is safe to include garcinia in my diet.

Hello Anon

Congrats on the weight loss - that's a great achievement!

The supplement you are asking about does not work particularly well, despite the hype. On average, those who take it lose no more than 2-3 pounds than those who don't.
Since you are taking medication to help with your diabetes, you should talk to your doctor first before taking it.
