I am not sure how many people will have this problem, but about a week ago, I stopped Metformin because my readings were low. I am now finding that off of it, my sugars are even lower, 60s and 70s. Now, my question is when do I really need to worry about a steady low reading like that? And, what do I do when they are running that low. I have had a reading of 69 before dinner and sometimes, before I go to bed, it is 74.

60's and 70's aren't really anything to worry about. Under 50 is where you start worrying and 50's are where you need to start taking care of.

Okay, thanks. I am wondering if I am not eating enough carbs. I also have cut way back on sodium.
