I just learned a bunch about glucokinase, and am parking some of what I learned here:

Biotin- is a B vitamin that is used to process glucose. In the liver, biotin aids insulin in increasing the activity of the enzyme (glucokinase) responsible for glucose utilization. Supplementing with biotin when you take your insulin may drastically increase the activity of the glucokinase enzyme, causing an improvement in your blood sugar. In one study, Type 1 diabetics were given 16 mg of biotin a day for one week and their fasting glucose levels dropped by 50%. Try taking 16 mg a day in 3-4 even doses to see if your fasting blood glucose improves.  (Holiistic Online, 1998)
