    Hi

    I have been on glickazide but gone off of it because of severe abdominal pain and nausea

    I never had problems with hypos while on it but my morning fasting blood sugar was slowly increasing. Most mornings it was between 8 - 9.5

    I have been able to reduce my glicklazide to 15 mg per day. Together with 1000mg per day of metformin, my HBAIC is 6.2. I have read that glucose toxicity is what kills beta cells when BS is above 7.8 mmol/L.
