Hi there, diagnosed type 2 in February this year, after GP appointment reporting all the usual symptoms and had lost a considerable amount of weight. After much research and finding great information on this site, I feel that I have a reasonable understanding of my condition. I keep very active and follow a low carb route. My HBAC1 halved to 7.1 in the last few months. However, since taking Glyclacide, as I suffered severe side effects from initial Metformin, I have put on almost a stone in weight. Over the past few days I read I think on this site that Glyclacide can cause this. What would others do please- change medication that I feel well and comfprtable with or continue and just exercise more and have no carbs? Thanks.
