I do not understand your comment, "Always in low 50's", Is that your fasting sugar? your after meal sugar? Is your meter working properly? Does it show low batteries?" Or was that your weight, like 152? Do you want to lose weight or gain weight? After reading your confusing post again, I think you are asking if your metformin is keeping you from gaining weight, which it seems is what you want to do. How tall are you, and how active are you in the way of daily exercise? What is your A1c and your fasting sugar? We will try to answer you if we can understand your questions.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
