I have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been put on Metformin ER, 500mg once a day to begin with.
In reading different messages and concerns, I have seen several comments on other sites that one has to be careful and watch carbs when taking this medication.
Can anyone tell me why? What effect does it have on carbs, or vice versa? I have seen comments, but nothing that explains it. I am trying to watch what I eat and follow cooking and dieting guidelines and have done fairly well so far, loosing 15 lbs. in my first 2 months. I worry about the "carb factor" and Metformin. Can someone help me, please?
