Hello, my first post here. I have had “glucose intolerance” on & off for past 7 years, since the age of 21. We also have a family history of Type-II diabetes. My latest blood works came out with a Hba1c of over 7.5 (This is because I had a lot of events going on and eating a lot of high-carb high-sugar foods) My Doctor put me on metformin which I haven’t started taking yet because I started Keto diet now and that has brought down my blood sugar level to ~100mg/dl 2 hours after food and a fasting of 75-80mg/dl (~4 mmol)
But I’d like to go off keto after 6-8 weeks and do a low-carb diet. I was wondering if it’d be advisable to take metformin while I’m on low-carb and then stop metformin when I get back to Keto?
Also, I workout regularly, doing a fair amount of HIIT & strength training 4-5 times a week.
