I have gd, have recently been put on metformin at night due to my fasting levels being too high. My daily levels are great with diet control but no matter what i try my fasting levels are always between 5 and 5.4 (supposed to be under 5). I was put on 1 x 500mg tablet at night to start, after 2 weeks it only helped sometimes, now I'm on 2 x 500mg tablets every night, it's still not doing much. Wondering if I'll get put on insulin at next appt in just over a week. It's so annoying i feel like I'm failing my baby, even though i know it's out of my control.
On the plus since finding out i have gd and starting the diet i have lost about 3kg which dr says is good considering my bmi classes me as obese (although to look at me you wouldn't think so).
Anyone else tried the metformin and then had to go on insulin? I'm 31 weeks atm.
