Mon, Jan 7 7:42pm · Have you experienced Any Side Effects from Metformin 500 mg 2XDay? in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Metformin did upset my stomach for about a month or 2 when I started on it. I am now on 850 mg twice a day, and it took another month or so to get used to that also–no other side effects for me.

It could be–we are all different and have different reactions. I usually don't get much of a warning before it happens to me; I read that it happens to people who have had a lot of lows, sometimes no warning at all. That is no fun, I can assure you! I hope you had a great Christmas, and have a very Happy New Year! Good Health to you my friend!

Wow! Consider yourself blessed, it is no fun waking up and wondering what happened to you–usually a big drop, or my sugar got too low. It is great that you haven't had that problem, God Bless You!

I was on insulin when I was first diagnosed, but I kept passing out–so the Dr. stopped the insulin. I was supposed to take 20 units the first day–and my Nurse Practitioner wife suggested we start with just 2 units, because she knew that I had unusual reactions to med's. I passed out with just 2 units of insulin. Now I am on 850mg Metformin twice a day, no insulin. I strongly suspect that I may have the Autoimmune Diabetes, I believe it is called. They also call it 1.5 Diabetes for a shorter name. I read about it on the Mayo Clinic Newsletter I get through my e-mail. The treatment is mostly the same, the only difference is that eventually you will need insulin to control it; and most people who have it are misdiagnosed as a type 2 diabetic at first. I take it one day at a time, with a whole lot of prayer mixed in and leave the rest to the Lord!!!!

No, I am a type 2 diabetic, for 6 years now. But my reactions are not typical; Dr.'s believe that most of it is caused by my anxiety attacks–which cause my sugar to spike, and then I when I do calm down–my sugar drops drastically.

I have anxiety attacks that play havoc with my sugars–huge rises and then big drops. I also have insomnia and when I miss hours of sleep, my sugars go crazy. I, too, have trouble while exercising–causing crashes; and the dozing out you are talking about happens to me also. I have had it for 6 years now, did you find any help or answers for your problems?

Dec 18, 2018 · How do you stick to your dietary plan when traveling for medical care? in Just Want to Talk

I don't travel much, but when I do–I can always find someplace that has baked or grilled fish or chicken. French fries are always hard to stay away from when traveling. Sometimes I eat half, and have a little salad. Not always easy, but it can be done. If you can have a small bite or 2 of something you really like, without having the whole thing–that is always a plus. Best of luck to you!
