The last three days my husbands blood sugars (fasting and non) were below 100. The first time his testing was in the late afternoon before dinner and before his evening meds. He felt "not quite right" so he decided to test, the result was 50. He ate and tested again in 1 hr (60) 2hrs (116) so he didn't take his 500mg of metformin for fear his sugars would plunge overnite. Ten years ago the dr had him on glyburide for a number of years and stopped all meds when he had three severe low sugar episodes. Could he be developing a problem with the metformin?
