Hi I am new to the forum I was not diagnosed wtih diabetes or prediabetes. My AIC is 6.2 my finger stick blood sugars are between 88-94. My doctor was concerned about my family history and my wt I am 5'6'' and 195 lbs, so she started me on Metformin 1000mg at dinner. It took me three days to take the medicine I felt "why am I taking this I am not diabetic". But I gave in and now it has been a few weeks.So far only stomach discomfort and no diarrhea (wished I did stay constipated).
