Default Meter testing

When I finish eating my meal and I wait 2 hours to test. Should I test with taking my metformin or should I wait after my reading to take the metformin ?

It won't matter whether you take it before or after. Metformin is something that builds up in your system-not something that works as soon as you take it.
