Like "I too was nauseated when I first started taking Metformin, try eating something first to coat your stomach. Last May my bgl was 225 & I was in poor health. My husband & I started on a healthy eating plan & exercising at our local YMCA. We have lost over 80 lbs together, my bgl is now lower than 100. I have Fibromyalgia so my Yoga/Pilates class & my arthritis exercise class are in a swimming pool. I eliminated 6 meds & I'm now tapering off my 7th. Exercise is one of the best things for diabetes & depression. I am 62. You will be ok! "
