Thanks Shanny! No my Dr did not recommend testing! This forum did and I will be forever grateful! I will test at 1 and 2 hours. I appreciate the direction. PattiIt is of some importance that you begin testing one hour after your meals as well as two. There are occasional exceptions, but most of us spike before the two-hour interval elapses. We know that doctors suggest (if they suggest testing at all, and usually they don't) two hours, but we who live with the disease find greater success using eat-to-your-meter guidelines.
Possible answers: 1. Could be too many carbs still. Maybe under 30g per day may help. 2. Many GI issues with met pass in time. So it could be this. 3. Extended release version of met tends to have fewer GI issues. Not sure if you're on regular release or extended. These are just some things off the top of my head. Others may have more ideas. Sent from my iPhoneI do have another question! When I first started taking Metformin I was eating way too many carbs (40-50) per meal and experienced extreme clamminess! Now I am eating 30-45 per day and still have mild and/or fleeting clamminess. Is this to be expected or am I still eating too many carbs? Will this be life long or can I modify it? Thanks for any help!
the 99 and 109 fall within your meters range of error so they're essentially the same reading.I am having trouble keeping my fasting blood glucose under 100. I was diagnosed in August (7.4 BG) and my 1st A1C was 6.1 at the end of November. I am eating LCHF and trying to stay under 30 carbs per day. I was eating a cheese snack at night and thought that might be the problem. Two mornings ago with nothing to eat after dinner my fasting BG was 99. But last night I had no snack and this morning the BG reading was 109. Can anyone make some suggestions? Thanks.
