I am seriously thinking about asking my doctor if I can try Metformin to replace my daytime insulin after my sugery. My numbers have been really good and I think are in control now. Last a1c was 6.4. Once I recover from the surgery and things settle down again, I want to try. I have read a lot of good things about Metformin. The worst that can happen is that it won't work as well and I have to go back on insulin. Don't know if I will see my PCP before surgery, but absolutely going to ask. What are your experiences?
