June 26, 2014. I had a severe yeast infection, which prompted my dr to have me get blood work done. My blood sugars were over 300, and A1C was 14%. She put me on 500 mg Metformin, twice a day, but could not get down past 260 for my morning/fasting testing. So now she has doubled the Metformin and put me on 5mg on Glipizide. First full day, and morning test was 137, so I guess it is working! I can't believe what I ate before all of this..fast food, candy at night, sugary drinks, etc. I already feel better. First day on Metformin, however, my vision got very blurry. Had to wear my glasses all the time. Now that I'm doubled the Metformin, its almost back to normal. Going to the Dr. next week to make sure I'm ok. Not sure what they can do though, if there HAS been damage? Anyway, glad to find this, and looking forward to meeting many of you!
