What i have heard from other members that you can get Metoformin XR from your doctor which is slow release and can be better.

Think normal Metoformin is more effective.

I have been diagnosed T2 5 weeks last friday so i am a learner.

From what i hear its better to carry on taking it and it will eventually get beter after 5 weeks to 3 months.

Heard of someone going on insulin as stomach cramps were that bad.

I am unemployed soi grin and bear it, ok now.

After a week the Metoformin did get my bllood glucose down from 16 to around 7 - 8 mm/l.

All the best.

Davey.

No not related.

I am in the uk, put diabetic forums in google and here i am.

Nice to hear other diabetics with same symptoms, problems as my self.

Makes me feel not so bad that people are going through the same problems i went through.

I have a lot to learn, especially this low carb thingy.

Quite surprised at the speed that i am getting replies in here, 3 in 15 minutes. :D

Pleased to meet you all.

Davey.

:p

You sure are cheerful for just being diagnosed Davey. You're a breath of fresh air. Yes, there is lots to learn. Take it slow so that you do not get overwhelmed. Nice to meet you also.

Welcome! I'm glad you decided to join our group. I'm on metformin and it was tough at first but now I'm okay with it. Very little side effects. Stick with it (if you can) and it will get better. I see metformin as a big key in keeping my glucoses under control.
