I was diagnosed with diabetes 5 years ago. I was on Metformin (2000mg) most of the time. But recently (Oct.2013) I was put on Glicazide (80mg)+ Metformin (1000mg).
I noticed that I have suddenly put on about 3 kgs in the last 3 months (Diet not changed very much). I thought it was winter fat, but when I measured myself today, there was not much of a difference in my waist line (0.5 inches more). But my face definitely looks chubbier!!!
Does Glicazide or a combination of the drugs cause water retention or weight gain?
Would love to hear all of your input!
