Wow, I tested before lunch and 2 hours after, and the numbers were the same, ~165. Yikes, that can't be good, right? Could it be because I had zero carbs at b'fast and only a small 1-2 carb snack? Geez, this is upsetting. I just picked up the Metformin and I really hope it helps. Does it take a while to take effect or should I see a quick drop in my levels?

takes six weeks or so before Metformin kicks in, but please pesevere, it's one of the good guys

If you dont eat too many carbs, your liver decides to dump it's secret stash into your bloodstream, but soon runs out after a day or two.

All crazy stuff in the early days
