So I was diagnosed about a year ago. I weighed close to 500 pounds. They put me on 3 850mg metformin and 10 mg glipzide and sugar came under control. Lost insurance and dropped 75 pounds and my sugar started dipping to 50 so I freaked out and stopped taking all pills.
4 months have passed and I went to the ER with kidney infection. Told doc about everything he set me up with a single 500 mg metformin extended release. Fasting sugar is now 145 -165 and during the day 150-185.
Should I be worried or am I good? I'm losing more weight.
