Hi all, Just been told today I'm a member of the type 2 club by my doctor but i'm very confused and hope someone can shine a light on my confusion. just under 2 weeks ago I had a blood test and the BG came back as 8 no other previous tests done just the results from this one didnt see my doctor tonight but another at the same practice. earliest appointment hes put me on 500mg of Metformin twice a day. before taking any medication I bought an Accu chek nano and did a test it was 4.6 then 2 hours later its 5.4 before my evening meal. question is should i dive straight into munching on Metformin with it being this low would it make the level go too low??? I went back to my surgery and spoke to the receptionist, they went into (did you want a second opinion) cannot comment on another doctors decision on prescribing. he doubled my BP meds without blinking and this doesnt sit well as ive just been put on another BP med a week ago and its going down and im sure its not settled yet. the receptionist came back with "only take 1 a day until you see the nurse........ I didnt want a second opinion I was just asking how metformin could be prescribed on 1 bloodtest alone and that not being a fasting bloodtest either. ive got to wait a week for the Diabetic nurse as ive so many questions im glad ive found this forum. are the numbers indicative inconclusively Im type 2 or is there cause to question??? Am i over-reacting??? I appreciate any and all advise.
