Welcome Mark! Glad to meet you! It is a good thing that you tested and found that you needed the full dose of Diamicron. Be sure to test when you feel low and treat accordingly. Take care and hurry back!

You can always keep glucose tabs in your pocket just in case you go a little too low. Since diamicron is not marketed in the US, I have scant knowledge and no experience with it. I just know it is one of the sulfonylurea drugs which stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin. Keep up posted on how you're doing, okay?

All the best . . .

You prob'ly remember it took metformin quite awhile to reach maximum blood levels . . . do the sulfonylureas build up like that too? I have no idea . . .

i read about diamicron that dose can be increase if the blood sugar level still high after 2 weeks.so i guess it will build up as metformin.
reading now after 6 hr is 102 not bad as a start.
