I am newly diagnosed type 2. My first A1C was six weeks ago and it was 11.2. Metformin 850 mg twice a day, combined with a low carb diet and light exercise has really made a big difference. My A1C this morning was 7.5. My doctors are very pleased and said that these results are not typical. Even though I am doing well and I feel great, my morning levels are never under 115 and sometimes spike to 150 or so before I am able (or want) to eat breakfast. I test first thing when I get up, take my metformin. I have tried to eat a bite of nuts or peanut butter or something until I can eat a proper breakfast but no real change in results. Anyone else experience this?
