I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years back and I’ve been taking the slow releasing metformin and alogliptin. Periods Have been ok, but for some reason my periods has become late and I don’t know why

Hi GemGem95 ,

Have you talked with your doctor about the periods becoming late? When did this start? For me, I have PCOS and also type 1, so having both conditions can go together for some women. I've had issues since I was a teenager. The doctor put me on medication to make the periods less irregular, but that didn't help until my late 20's early 30's when I had surgery in August 2012. I was told to stop the pills and see how things went after the surgery. Since surgery was done back then, I have been more regular and the blood sugars have been somewhat more stable. I don't get lows the night/day before any periods are suppose to happen. I hope this helps. :-)

I suffered growing with really heavy periods I only went to the doctors recently since I started getting really painful pms As I’ve got older. ive recently been diagnosed with type 1.5 (LADA) last month so I’m now on tolbutamide. They just put me on a couple acid type tablets to help with heavy bleeding and pain, they said I could go on the pill but I’m not really sexual active at the moment.

Would you be okay to have me send you a message on HU?

Metformin adversely affected my sight and I had frequent painful diarrhoea. I stopped taking it after a few weeks. I went on a low carb diet and my hb1ac went from 100 to 80 to 41 within 4 months. I lost a lot of weight and started exercising frequently. A few months ago my hb 1ac was at 33. My T2 diabetes is in remission.
