Heya, I just got diagnosed with T2 this last Wednesday. I am confused about a few things. My dr put me on Metformin 500mg once a day with my breakfast. I took it as directed, all the while, changing my eating and adding exercise in one to two times a day. I am eating tons of veggies, low carb, high protein and no sweets. So on Sunday, I took my medication with my breakfast (2 eggs, spinach, sauteed tomatoes and garlic) and had a string cheese a couple of hours later. About 1.5 hours after this, I started feeling really weird. I felt fuzzy headed and almost drunk. I assumed my sugars were just adjusting from the medication. I left a message with my doctor, ate a sandwich and took a nap because I was feeling off. I woke up from my nap like 30 minutes later and the nurse was calling. She said the doctor wants me to stop the metformin and call today. She gave me no test kit, so I am not sure of readings. Then I borrowed a friends kit and tested my sugar this morning 2 hours after my breakfast (no medication.) I had a smoothie I made with a whole large banana, 1/4 cup of oats, 3 tbsp of peanut butter, and some peanut butter protein powder all blended together with almond milk. When I tested my sugars 2 hours later, they were 126. When I initially went to the dr, my glucose was 143 fasting. Honestly, I don't know how these things work, but I would assume that my sugars would be higher than 126 2 hours after eating if they were 143 fasting, no? Now she is telling me to start on half a tablet a day because I had a "headache," which isn't even true. And I'm also wondering, could my diet and exercise plus the metformin have made my sugars too low? I don't know how metformin works and if it can do that. So sorry for the huge post, I'm so confused!
