I have been struggling with my numbers for the past two weeks. I have learned sooo much since I joined diabetic connection. My numbers are still higher than I want them and I have to whole wheat everything, reading all my labels, etc. My question is: SHOULD I UP MY METFORMIN until my numbers come down even more? I take 500 mg twice a day, I wonder if I should take 1000 twice a day? Still confused but learning more and more. I was told also that diabetics should not use "Splenda" but use Trivia? To me Trivia does not sweeten my "tea" as well as Splenda. What are your thoughts on this??
