Hi there -
I was put on Metformin 6 weeks ago and while it’s controlling my blood sugar quite well (I’ve only had two or 3 numbers over 140 since!), it makes me feel like “you-know-what”. I’m soooo incredibly tired, no energy and lots of stomach problems. I have a f/u with my endo tomorrow where we’ll look at the results of my blood work (c-peptide, gad, islet, etc.) If those are normal and I’m still classified as Type 2, I’m considering telling him I want to try diet and exercise for a while.
Have any of you had side effects from Metformin that lead you to another method of treatment? If so, what was it and how successful were you?
Thanks for any comments!
