SignatureI'm not a doctor, I cannot advise, only share experiences.
Diagnosed 1997, took Metformin for 5 years before side effects were just too much to cope with. Took Rosiglitazone which affected my liver function and cause dramatic weight increase. Stopped Rosiglitazone and went back to Metformin, side effects lessened because of taking codeine for arthritic knees. Gliclazide and Januvia were added then discussed insulin with GP. AT the same time a Nutritional Therapist recommended low carb to lose weight which worked fine. Side effect was avoiding insulin and coming off Gliclazide and Januvia. Recently stopped Metformin because of same old problem. Might go back and try slow release.
