I have been posting a lot this week, but wanted to share this. I have been treated for Type 2 Diabetes for about 4 years, with Metformin. I was originally on two doses of 500mg a day (1,000mg), which my Dr increased to 2000mg a day last year. I found out this week that my B12 is insufficient and that Metformin inhibits absorption of B12 so Dr agreed with me that I could stop taking it and keep an eye on my glucose levels. I started supplementing with B12 + B complex, Selenium, Magnesium & Vit C 5 days ago. I also adopted high protein low carb diet 5 days ago and my blood glucose tests are near normal. On waking they have consistently been 6 and 2 hours after eating main meal they have dropped back to 5.8 - I can't believe the changes On the Metformin the lowest I ever registered was 8.6 and that was with 2000mg dose. I'm chuffed to bits. I have never been a big eater, sometimes going all day till evening before eating, but I am now having 3 square meals a day and not feeling hungry at all. The bloating and wind has subsided and I have actually lost a couple of pounds.
