Well, it’s been about a week now since the Endocrinologist started me on Metformin. And I have lost a few pounds (3). But, more to the point, my blood glucoses are better than ever! I just had a 2 hour post-lunch reading of 93! OK, maybe it’s too soon to do a “happy-happy joy-joy” dance, but I’m starting to think that the advice I’ve been lead to from this site and my other reading was correct & that I’m SO glad I asked to be put on it. So far, there had not been any side effects, and I’m doing okay with it.
