Hi! I just got the result of my glucose blood test it is 241. I know that this is more than double the normal which is 120. But I do not want to take metformin because of my experience of having numbness of my left hand. Am I a full blown diabetic? My creative is normal and ultrasound of my kidneys are normal but my urinalysis result has +4 albumin. Can you recommend other medication from metformin. My blood glucose has been elevated since 5 years ago but it is only now that it got 241. Please help me.

I was given metformin 500mg a day dosage by my doctor. About a year ago, i noticed i have frequent eruptions of fungus infections on my penis foreskin, and frequent balanitis infection on my penis and also delayed healing of my plantar fasicitis that caused me to wonder if i had diabetes. A fasting glucose check done about a year ago shown that my level is 8.5 and 7.5. Then my doctor gave me metformin 500mg a day dosage taken with every nite meal. I done HBA1C test and my blood sugar went to normal 5.1. I used diet, exercise and metformin to control my blood sugar now.. may i know if i still have Type 2 Diabetes?? since now my blood sugar is normal.. should I still take Metformin???
