If you're tolerating the 500mg you should definitely look at upping it. Metformin is one of the few medications that (if you tolerate it well) has no downside. Some people do experience some gastro-intestinal issues, which is why doctors often prescribe in lower levels first, then work their way up.

Also, daily exercise is one of the best things you can do. I don't know what you do for that, but low-carb, metformin and daily exercise of at least 45-60 minutes are the best things you can do for Type2 diabetes.
