      Good to hear from ya. I'm brighter but have my frustrating moments. More likely when my BG won't behave. I'm taking my tablets as u suggested - Gliclazide 20 mins b4 food & Metformin with the same meal. Just thought, should I be taking the Metformin at another time i.e: Gliclazide with breakfast, Metformin with lunch, Gliclazide with dinner & Metformin b4 bed with a snack. AAARGH, I'm driving myself batty.

        Hi Ali
        What the DN say, I take prior / after breakfast and the other pair prior/ after main meal . It depends on when you have a main meal but eating on the run like you do when and what would constitute a main meal.
        It's driving me mad too,
        Take care

      WOW at your fantastic HBA1c result. I was soooo upset yesterday when my GP phoned with my result as it was 122. (I'm newly diagnosed & it was the blood test that confirmed I had T2.) You've given me hope that the results can come down with some effort. I'm well impressed. Hope I can copy your success. And thank you very much for taking the time to reply to my question. You're very kind.
      Ali.
