I have had a reading of 47 hb1ac for the last 2 years and my weight has increased by 2 stone over that period despite my diet not changing; due to a gastric bypass as I have not been able to eat sweet foods or large meals for nearly 10 years. Should I ask to start a months treatment of metformin. I was pre-diabetic before my bypass and had sustained all the weight loss until the levels started rising (my sugars were always 4).
A friend of mine was diagnosed as borderline diabetic a few months ago and was given a temporary prescription for a month’s worth of metformin and now no long needs to take it as it brought her levels down.
So should I ask the drs to treat me as such?
I should also say that I have B12 deficiency which I am treating myself in between drs injections and also hypothyroidism both of which are now at optimal levels for my functioning so only issue is now my readings for hb1ac.
