I am taking 1000 mg of Metformin, have not taken for a few days and tested this morning with my Contour meter, i had a 500 reading, is this dangerous and what should I do? I havent eaten yet today, but coffee with a little cream? Normally I have a reading of 100 to 120 range in the morning. Thank you
I have Type 2 Diabetes, and my Doctor prescribed Metformin 1000mg . It does not lower my blood Sugar. The readings are 178 166 203 212 198 156. I told him about the readings. He reduced the dosage to 500mg. The readings readings are still high. What alternate medication should I take?
Recently saw an endocrinologist to help with my high BS readings...he put me on an all protein diet, 20 units of Novolog before every meal, no matter the reading, 0.6 Victoza, increased every week (I increased it today to 1.2, and 1.8 next week), Metformin 500 mg ER, 1 tablet first week, increase by 1 every week till up to 4 Metformin, 60 units Lantus at bedtime. It has been hard to keep my BS up. I have a low every day, 3 in 1 day. All I m supposed to eat is meat and green vegies. No rice, no beans, nothing with flower, no fruit, no dairy but I can have eggs and bacon for breakfast. Doesn t it sound like I need to have him adjust my insulin?? I feel awful and have diahrrea also...feel weak and no energy.
