Hi. I have recently been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and prescribed Metformin. I was advised I would need 2 tablets in a morning and 2 at night, but that I couldn't take this dosage all at once and to build it slowly over 8 weeks (1 in a morning, 1 in a morning and 1 at night, 2 in a morning and 1 at night, 2 at mornings and night). When I was shown how to use the sugar levels machine my non fasting blood score was 12.6. Since starting the medication the fasted readings have constantly increased to 13, 13,3 and 13.7. Now I'm 5 weeks in should I not expect the numbers to be the same or less rather than increasing? My diet has changed in the last 5 weeks since diagnosis to include more fruit in place of the cereal bars I was eating loads of and I have completely removed sugary drinks, but that should surely improve things not account for a constant increase? I know theres sugar in fruit as well, but surely less than a cereal bar? Should I be concerned the numbers are going in the wrong direction?
