hi all hoping someone may be able to give me advice. As a type 2 diabetic diagnosed 2 years ago with hba of 97 I was put straight on 2 x Metformin 500mg and no dietary advice. I read lots in general and managed with some carb reduction and the met and weight loss to reduce to 42 within 6 months and was advised to stick to Metformin as “most people can’t keep up any changes.”I drifted a bit after this put a stone back on and my hba in May this year was 45 and nurse wanted me on statins. At this point I decided I needed to take myself in hand and get serious I started to research and this summer came across this site and the lCHF approach which I then started. I also mixed in with intermittent fasting and started to get serious results. However my reaction to Metformin was increasingly worse and my new blood glucose meter was showing an average reading of 5.5 so made decision to come off Metformin 7 weeks ago. I did try to ring drs but told unless urgent could not book as so busy so just got on with it. In the last two weeks my average blood meter reading has been 4.8 withoutmetformin and am so well. I have also lost 30 pounds and bmi now 23. My question is about what happened to me today. Went in for hbac1 and saw a health care assistant who took blood, weight etc and I mentioned my blood readings and that I had come off Metformin. Wish I’d taken a photo of look of shock on her face she was really not happy with me and said she needed to book me in with a dr for next Thursday to discuss my results when back as would need a gp opinion on this and may need to go back on them. I really don’t want to but what do others think. I’ve seen posts from people who stay on them for other benefits but I’ve never felt so well off them and with my new way of eating and weight. I do get anxious and would really appreciate some help, support and advice. Feel like I’m waiting to see the headmistress for being naughty! Yes I do have memories of this!
