Thanks for posting your query.
Let me know your blood sugar both fasting and postprandial.
There are a wide spectrum of medicines available for control of blood sugar and if Metformin
is causing side effects then you can use another one.
Metformin is associated with loss of weight and with multiple abdominal side effects.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ endocrinologist
and should go for thorough check up.
There may be possibility of development of diabetic neuropathy
due to persisitent raised blood sugar.
So, your blood sugar must be in controlled range. Otherwise you have to take treatment for diabetes
and its complications.
Diet control is supportive but alone is not able to control sugar.
