    Morning all,

    My DSN and GP at the incredibly wonderful practice with which I'm registered are both off this week and I will of course ensure I'll speak about this with them - but wondered, anyone else here suffer, immediately after eating a meal (not a small snack) dizziness, unsteadiness and light headedness which passes after an hour or two?

    Currently on Metformin 500mg twice per day, with average mmol over 21 days of 6.9, more recently in the 5s. No change to diet.

    Any thoughts appreciated and welcome.

    There can be a reduction in blood pressure when you low carb. Are you on any no meds? If so, they may need adjusting.
