Like "I was diagnosed with Type 2 three years ago. Eventually got down to taking only 500 mg metformonj each day. The last six months blood glucose numbers start rising. Just last week glymepiride was added back in to my meds. Now numbers are back to normal. I too am a thin person. I am 5'8" 128 pounds ( I was 150 when diagnosed. I have been maintaining the 128 for 2 1/2 years, but recently lost 5 pound due to gall bladder surgery, flu and sinus infection. I do heavy cardio and weightlifting 5-6 days a week. Hope that I can get of the glym. soon. Good luck to you. "
