Hi A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with T2. I was prescribed metformin and gliclazide. 1 x5 metformin and 1x gliclazide per day to start. After almost 3 weeks, despite eating less than half I was eating before, and mostly carb free (including 'hidden' sugars), I am up almost 2 kg on the weight I was 3 weeks ago. My fluid intake previous to diagnosis was mostly water, 2 -4 litres per day. Now I struggle to get even 1.5 litres in per day. I am extremely overweight. With eating mostly leafy vegetables and protein I would have thought I would lose some weight. The diabetes practice nurse last week mentioned that gliclazide has been known to have weight gain as a 'side effect'. Today the junior Dr, after consulting with a practice GP, said that weight gain was a 'good thing', as it seems to show that the body is normalising. I have one more week of gliclazide to complete. My blood sugar levels 3 weeks ago were in the high teens and low 20s, and after 3 weeks of meds and watching what I eat, my range is now between 7.0 and 13.5. Does anyone else have any experience or knowledge about Gliclazide, and its effect on weight gain? Thanks!
