    I am type 2 and take one metformin each day.
    I was diagnosed approx. 6 years ago and until last May I was diet controlled.
    Since then I have lost approx. 2 stone and am trying to lose a further 2 stone albeit slowly.
    Sometimes I feel really sickly and wondered if anyone had experienced this as it occurs randomly during the day.
    I do not check my levels regularly as the lancets are so expensive.
    Anyone any ideas or suggestions as to how to avoid this?

    hi, im not medical so please take me with a pinch of salt, but maybe worth trying to get a free meter and buy just one pack of strips, you really need to test your bg when you feel like this to know if its db related
