    Hi Sally , does not taking Metformin directly affect our HBA1C number if on the meter the readings are still between 4 & 7 morning and night ??? I started the Blood Sugar fasting diet a few months ago on the 13th July reduced my metforfin to one a day 500mgs sr from 4 a day and 2 glixozde 80 mgs a day any a week past Monday I stopped it and no difference on the readings I'm putting it down to the exersize regime and losing 76 pounds - feel a lot better but never went near docs no point

    Perhaps because I have several relatives and friends in healthcare professions I do not have unquestioning faith in our medical advisors, that is how I deal with my condition. Other people have utter trust in their healthcare professionals, and that is how they deal with it.
    We all have our own way of getting through life.
