A bit of background. I am a 52 overweight female diagnosed with type 2 diabetes some 5 years ago. I was prescribed Metformin from the off but it struggled to keep my BG levels in check e.g. I was called by my GPs out of hours service after one BG reading was so high they wanted to check I was feeling ok. Two years after diagnosis I was also prescribed Glicazide. Since then I have lost some weight, maybe a stone but no more, but have become fitter ( climbed Snowdon a couple of weeks ago ) I eat what I like, plenty of carbs, sweets and alcohol, when I like but not to excess. During my last diabetes checkup my GP said that my hba1c levels had been within non diabetic levels for over a year so she wanted to stop the Glicazide prescription. I argued against it as the Metformin had never been enough initially to control my BG and not much had changed with my weight. She reluctantly backed down but I am expecting the same argument being put forward during my next check up. I was wondering, would you make the same decision based on my history.
