How much does 750 SR metformin bring levels down? On average I mean?
Perhaps you need to be having a medication review with your health care professional. For instance, there are alternatives to the proton pump inhibitor that you mentioned if you are still having problems related to stomach acid. I have acid relfux and it is controlled very well by omeprazole.
I've been going around in circles with medics' for years so it would be pointless asking them and i'm on new meds anyway.
I'll stop it from Sunday and see what happens as can't live like this again and hopefully my other meds will cover me.
As far as I know, a maximum dose of metformin 2000 mg a day reduces levels by 1 -2 mmol/l. If you are not taking this med then you may want to eat as few carbs as possible so that your levels don't rise that much.
