    My HbA1c continues to fall. My latest blood tests of February show Hba1c of 31.
    I am taking 500mg Metmorfin 3 times a day. How long should it stay at this level before I talk to my doctor to decrease dosage?

    @SZB2357 ... at 31, I'd imagine you hardly need metformin at all. Certainly (IMO) I'd cut it ...

    Superb effort from you :)

    I’d speak to your doctor now, my last hba1c was 38 and I’ve just become drug free. Your choice but that’s what I’ve done
