After being diagnosed with CKD level 4 three months ago I was advised by my GP to stop taking Metformin which I use to control my diabetes. I now have to test my glucose levels every day with a meter and I am finding my reading creeping up to sometimes past the 10.00mml level. I have also started to gain weight. I have been very strict with myself about my sugar intake as well as salt.
Has anyone else had to stop taking Metformin? How did you manage your blood sugar levels?
