The Diabetes Educator recommended that I go onto Metaformin. I live in a small town so to see the Endo is a bit of a trek (I also have to make the same trek to go to my antenatal appointments, but fought to have some in my town just so that I don't have to make the 400km round trip every two weeks). No one has really given me any information on what I should be doing, everything that I am doing and do know has come from internet browsing and talking to a close friend who has Type 1. The main thing that I don't understand is how can I go from having fairly good levels before the Metaformin to having awful levels afterwards - even though my eating hasn't changed?!
I'm going to try to start dropping down my carbs, but I really don't know how much I should be eating. I read somewhere that it should only be 125g a day?! I always feel hungry if I don't eat carbs and I don't really know how to approach meals and cooking without a carb staple.
Chubear - I'm doing more exercise since going onto the Metaformin last Wednesday - trying to get out and about more and going to the pool when the weather is decent (which has been twice). I also find that on mornings when I have awful M/S my levels are much higher...
Do either of you know if having lowered liver function can affect how Metaformin or just insulin production works? I have pretty bad liver function because of a stupid mistake a few years ago, and it was getting better, but it started getting worse again recently and at the same time my blood sugar started rising.
