First Lowering of Metformin!
SaraVirginia posted:
I'm a new "poster" but have been reading site for awhile. Diagnosed T2 in April 2011, have been on 1000 Metformin a.m. and p.m. plus meds for cholestrol, BP and thyroid. I worked my tail off and lost 40 lbs with walking, dieting etc... Just visited Dr. and had Metformin lowered to 500 a.m. and p.m.! Looking forward to 40 more lbs gone and maybe being Metformin free this time next year. Happy happy and feel great! Thanks for all the interesting posts and tips here.
