so I saw my dietion the other day, and she said I wasn't doing to bad, so we talked about what I ate, and we talked about portion size, and then she asked me about walking, I guess from the way I understand it, is when we take the pill, we need to walk for 10 min, because the two go hand in hand, they help each other out, well since I started doing this walking or some kind of activity, 10 min after each meal, I find myself napping a lot from being tired all the time., but I have lost 10 pounds now, and I found out I have nerve damage in my feet.

I have been on metformin for over 5 years and not one person ever said you have to walk 10 mins after each meal. She may have told you this to get you to be more active. I walk at least once a day. Walking is good for you but you can find other exercises to do on You Tube if you don't feel like walking.

Howdy TV.
your visit sounds great for its positivity. Wondering what your "not too bad" numbers are running?

What Medication are you taking? I have not heard that walking for 10 minutes for any of the Meds of which I have heard. Of course walking is good anytime you can. That is great you've lost 10 lbs.

I also join you in the marathon napping department.

God's best to you and yours

I'm glad you were able to meet with a dietitian, and that you learned some useful information that you're already putting into place.It's great that you're fitting in regular exercise. ~Lynn @Glucerna
