I’m T1. My father-on-law was diagnosed with pre-diabetes about a year ago. Fasting BG of 110. He’s never exceeded 140. He doesn’t hit 120 after a high carb meal. He’s on a low dose of metformin.
He’s 82 yrs old. He’s prescribed meds by a couple different doctors for phlebitis, blood pressure, and he’s on a blood thinner too. I question the need for the metformin. My logic is he’s not going to see symptoms of complications for years, if ever in his life. He probably doesn’t need the hassle and expense of thinking he needs treatment for the pre-diabetes. Oh yeah, he hasn’t been educated, or refuses to follow diet and exercise recommendations. Basically he can’t exercise enought o do any good.
