Hello group, I don't know if this my imagination, for the week I've been taken diabetes medication called metformin, I notice I've been going to the bathroom a lot, number two and another thing I notice I'm losing weight I feel much lighter and I'm even exercising, could this be drug be a miracle pill to lose weight. When I left the doctors office about week ago he told me at times and medication will make you lose weight but not so fast, could this might be my imagination, and I read everything on the post I will not stop taking metformin, I noticed since I've been on it, I notice,my suger been stable, is must normal, just wondering, but I lot stool. PS there are times I get high numbers when I eat starchy food why, but I'm trying to cut down on junk food and eating more vegetables and salads
Thank you David and Anon. I will not stop metformin because this past two weeks since I've been taken in my sugar is a much better. Even at times I eat the wrong food, but overall I'm trying hard to the success in my diabetes, yes today I had some doodles but I noticed the package was high in sodium that's okay for me because I don't get enough salt in my body. If this makes sense I'm heavier and lighter other days, meaning what I'm wearing I feel skinnier if that makes any sense, but my last weigh-in was 143, can't seem to get to 130 anymore, my belly is huge I don't look good in shorts does anybody have Isles have problems the way we dress makes us feel different than another day just want to know your output.but exerssei & walk lot today.
David, the doctor did tell me, at times in a couple months I could lose weight in a few months but you're right it's not a miracle pill and it's not losing weight but he said you could get some energy,so could walk he knows I've been through a lot with my car accident and being stressful all time, with mother, but he also said you have to try not to have stress because you glucose goes up when your stress, but lately I've been doing much better with stress very calm and collected with mom
