If you haven't had the opportunity to meet with a registered dietitian and/or certified diabetes educator, ask your doctor for a referral. They'll help you learn more about diabetes and how you can best manage it. ~Lynn @Glucerna

I have kidney disease for which i need dialysis. I have been told that metformin and Kidney disease does not go together. Before you take Met for your diabetes get a recommendation from your pharmacist re the Met.
