    I'm sorry I can't advise you on your medication. But, bananas may be the culprit. The only way to be sure is to test with and without them. Good luck.

    Bananas are very high carb fruits, over 20 percent digestible carbs, even though botanically a berry, there are far lower carb alternatives.

    Your title to your post is slightly misleading.
    Perhaps you could confirm the correct spelling - is it Galvus Met?
    Should you wish, @DCUKMod could correct it for you...

    Hello there - You confirm your title has a typing error in it, but then your say it is gulvus?

    Were I, or any other moderator change the title of your thread; do you want it to be Galvus Metformin, or Gulvus Metformin?

    Thanks.
