Vinegar and Blood Sugar

Like many folks on this board, my H is living with Type 2 Diabetes. While picking up blood pressure meds at the pharmacy today, the pharmacist inquired if he'd considered adding a couple of spoonfuls of vinegar diluted 50/50 with water before meals to reduce postprandial BG levels.

Have any of you tried this? Is it bunk? Ideally, though he's now off of insulin injections, we'd also like him to be eventually free of the Metformin, too.

Thanks--and I know that every "body" is different and the BIG factors are diet and exercise. I value your opinions.
