Hi all OH just come back from GP with a prescription for Glidipion I have read the side-effects and it doesn't look too good. Anyone else on here take these? Goodle says they are banned in France. He was trying to be drug free, cannot tolerate Metformin or Glyclacide, is slightly underweight and has been trying to control his diabetes with diet.He is active in his job as a removal man and furniture dealer. He hasn't had a blood test for ages and has come back with HbA1C of 124 and a very bad temper! Any advice please?
