Notes for this study:
6 persons with type II diabetes subject to Vanadium treatment for 3 weeks at 100mg daily improved glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in response to glucose by enhancing the actions of insulin; these persisted for 2 weeks after cessation of vanadium.

A trend to reduce triglycerides was noted, but failed to be significant.
