Thanks for the query.
Nutrilite glucose health is a dietary supplement containing herbs and trace elements.
Nutrilite glucose health contains chromium picolinate, an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in activating a key enzyme involved in metabolism. One small study suggests that chromium picolinate may reduce the risk of insulin resistance, and therefore possibly may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. FDA concludes, however, that the existence of such a relationship between chromium picolinate and either insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes is highly uncertain.

There may be no harm in taking this product along with your insulin injections but you should always inform you doctor before starting this product.
Since this product doesn't have any role in controlling your sugar levels,doctors generally don't prescribe this product.
The decision to use this product is totally yours,but after talking to your doctor.

Please write back if there is any additional query.
Best of luck.
