Metformin users, are you pre-diabetic or diabetic. My A1c is 6.1 and I am glucose intolerant. I was given metformin and refuse to take for several reasons. I already take over 20 pills twice a day for Sjogrens, high cholesterol, heart dysrhythmias, and osteoarthritis. I can't do anything about some of these but I have decided to not let diabetes rule my life. I have changed my diet from whatever I wanted to eat to fruits, veggies, no bread, limited sweets, no red meat, broiled/grilled and not fried food, limited starches and the first week I lost 4 lbs. I am a nurse so I walk at work 12 hours a day. I am too tired to exercise.
I was also afraid once I started taking the metformin I would give up and say the medicine will take care of my diabetes.
We will see what unfolds the next few weeks. Good luck and let me know how the metformin works for you.
