Hi everyone,I just came back from my pump follow up appointment.My starting A1c was 8.5.a week after it came down to 8.2 ,a month later no change,which was kinda disappointing.But I’m positively
that it’s gonna go down.One reason might be because I almost had no lows to miss with the A1C.
My endo decided to put me on 500 milligrams.
My weight came down 1 kilo,which I’m happy about.But I’m normal weight to begin with,My mean BMI is about 20.My postprandials were ranging from 140 to 220s on rare occasions.My fastings are always perfect.Before meals sometimes run a bit high,once up to 200.
I know that Metformin is licensed as First-line drug for Type 2 diabetics.I’ve read quite a lot about it but I can’t find information on using it on Type 1s or with insulin at all.I know they use them with Type1s sometimes but I’m not satisfied with what I found yet.
I’m quite upset about this.For many reasons.I don’t want to add another drug to my list-Vitamin D3-Calcium-Thyroxin-Roaccutane in addition to insulin ),Which will increase the chance of me forgetting to take my pills.For another.It sounded like I wasn’t working hard enough.And lastly.Because of the side effects -gastrointestinal irritation-,although I’m open to losing some pounds .
so please,any feedback,stories,…etc.I’d be glad to hear any.
