Diabetologist 's  Response
Dear sir, the maximum dosage of metformin per day is 3g as per international standards. In India we generally keep it to 2g per day as our patients experience severe gastritis with higher doses.Seeing your treatment regimen my suggestion would be to concentrate more on the portion size of your breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I am confident that you will do very well with this minor adjustment alone.
Wishing you the best.
