Hello, I was recently diagnosed with type 2 a month ago. I was started on metformin 1 per day increasing to 2 after two weeks. All seemed fine initially. It's weird because I didn't have any symptoms of diabetes apart from tiredness after meals and getting up in the night to go to the loo, no excessive thirst and certainly no weight loss. It was only after my auntie, who is also diabetic, tested my blood glucose and found it was about 11 first thing in the morning. I've cut out all sweets, cakes, biscuits, sugary drinks, and have really reduced my carb intake, I'm walking the dog every evening which is getting better and better, we are able to walk much further every time and I've lost a lot of weight initially around my chest and stomach. So the problem I'm having is I don't have much appetite and am generally less hungry than I've ever been! also for the past 10 days I've been suffering from insomnia, where I can't fall asleep no matter how tired I am before going to bed and I'm only getting a few hours sleep per night. I did change my mattress when it started so I'm not sure if that's to do with it or it's something to do with the metformin, my levels in general coming down, or some other complication? I wondered if any else had experienced a similar thing? Upon waking my levels are about 5.6 mmol/L.
