My fbp is 114 and pp is 145 and HbA1C 6.5. I am daily having a walk of around 5 Kms in 1 hour. Am i required to do some more exercise or what to do to bring my sugar level below 100.
Is there any side effect of Metformin Hydro... - Diabetes India
I have already mentioned on this board that after being unsuccessful for about a year in reducing my FBG (120--150) due to DP, I consulted with a diabetologist who advised me to take Metformin 500 SR twice a day. After breakfast and after dinner. Its been little over a month since I started taking Met twice a day. My FBG levels now average 90 to 105, a drop of 35/40.
I believe that taking Met is the sole factor responsible for the drastic drop in my FBG levels. I have had absolutely no side effects thus far. From what I've read too, Met SR is one of the safest drugs (for type 2 diabetes) going. Read Jenny Ruhl amongst several others. Pages 94--100 paperback, 2012 edition of Blood Sugar 101.
I must reiterate that what worked for me, may or may not work for others. Further, I am in close contact with my diabetlogist, who will advice me on dosage, how long to continue, etc, etc, etc.
All the best, Ranj. I am planning to spend more time on other foreign boards where the diet is more akin to mine. I may therefore not post here again.
All the very best to everyone here. Cheers !!
medfree because of work pressure on a project I was eating in a 7-8 hours window in 2009 and my HbA1C shot to 11.3%. Came down to 70 - 120 within 3 weeks and I gave up monitoring. It is for this reason when I got HbA1c 11.6% this January, I increased food snack intake to 8-12 times per 24 hours with 2 bites between dinner and breakfast. [I know this does not establish 'cause and effect' but may still be holding some relationship dynamics]
