I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes 4 years ago. At the time I weighed 280lbs (I'm 5'10" tall). I was put on Metformin and insulin (12 unit once a day).
Since that time, through changes in my diet and plenty of exercise, I have managed to get my weight down to 190lbs, where it has been fom almost 18 months now. After my last physical exam and A1c test, my doctor decided to take me off of Metformin and put me on Glyburide instead, he joked that I almost no longer could be considered Diabetic at all!
I've done some research on the differences/benefits between Metformin and Glyburide and wanted to inquire of the Community if anyone could advise me regarding any experiences they may have had regarding any weight changes that maybe I can expect, i.e. will I have to change my diet again? I am currently eating a high protein/low carb diet, with plenty of fruit (especially grapes and bananas) and nuts. I also walk and ride my bicycle for any trips less than 5 miles and walk my dog a mile to and from the park, twice a day for exercise.
