I forgot to take my one Metformin pill last night and my blood test this morning is five points higher than yesterday at 125. That means the pill is not making much of a difference. Yesterday I ate four dried apricot halves and they are yummy but but quite sweet. I love them.
My doctor only tests my A1c a couple times a year, and I have to remind him that it needs to be checked. I am not exercising enough as I have been doing some inside projects and I haven't been out and about. Granddaughter wants to bake cookies Friday. Dorisena

Taking metformin has gotten mine down in the 1 hundreds havent seen a 2 hundreds in a while also bought a exercise bike
A nurse told me that being regularly over 200 is a concern, so if we stay in the 100's, I am not so fearful of long term damage. My son's doctor said a person could take as many as four Metformin a day, with meals, but I am only taking one at night and doing pretty well. Diet makes the most difference. Dorisena
I find the glycemic index the most useful for controlling carbs. The closer to the 100 is a high load. I try to avoid foods with over a 50 glycemic I Dei and eat mostly below 50 GI I have posted a sample page from the app. Check out this app! It's really helpful.
Hi @jdiakiw, I wanted to let you know that I moved your comment over to the blood sugar levels discussion because I think the information that you provided is very useful to others that are struggling. How are you enjoying the app since having it for a little while?
I find it very helpful eg that brown rice is much better than white from an insulin reaction point of view
