I would think you're not noticing much difference in your blood
glucose from cinnamon because you are Type I. Cinnamon (and most other
things that work for Type IIs) work in one of two ways - they either
encourage your pancreas to produce more insulin, or they reduce your
insulin resistance. As a Type I, neither tactic is likely to be
helpful for you.
