Hi guys I was diagnosed with diabetes 2-3 months ago and still haven’t been told the type. I’ve been advised it’s type 2 due to only taking oral tablets and not injecting insulin. Not sure if That’s a reasonable measurement but anyway I was put on metformim and glyclazide straight away. I built up to metformin 4 a day (500mg) and just the 1 glyclazide. I felt really ill as my mmoll came down to quickly and they took me off the glyclazide. My mmol was sitting at 28 at its highest and then down to 12-17’s. For around a month I’ve checked my blood and it’s been down to between 6-8 more or less consistently with maybe spikes at 10-11. I have cut my metformin to only 2 in the morning during this (because I keep forgetting to take the other 2 at night) and the levels have stayed as above between 6-8. I used to go to the gym everyday and hadn’t for a year before being diagnosed and last month I started back and feel the energy coming back. I’ve been consistent with it and I’m just wondering if I need to take the metformin anymore. I’d rather hear from real life accounts rather than a doctor pushing a drug. My diet has all changed as well and I was advised between 6-8 mmol is where I need to be so is there any harm or side effects to coming away from the metformin all together? I have noticed I’ve been feeling dizzy but assumed it could be from missing an antidepressant as I check my blood and it was around 7. So I didn’t assume it could be my diabetes. No idea lol. Would love to hear some suggestions or advice. Thanks guys.
