Hello, Just an update following my recent post....had an appointment with the diabetic nurse who stated that my blood sugar levels wouldn't go too low or high with taking Metformin. So my hot flushes are menopausal. She was going to increase the Metformin and I said I didn't want to so she prescribed and the GP authorised a new medication called Jardiance (empagliflozin). Never heard of this so would value your opinions. I have read the side effects and am unsure!
