For the past four years I've been treated for type 2 diabetes.
I never had OGTT test. The then PC decided that was not necessary.
My blood count at the time was 8, but I had breakfast an hour ago.
I was put on 1500gs Metformin straight away.
I had to change Doctor as I moved in a new area. He order a OGTT and said that I was not diabetic. Results 5 and 7 after two hours.
I stop taking Metformin and my glucose levels remain the same or slightly elevated. Still under 6 and under 8 after food. My energy levels are back after one week. I was constantly sleepy during the three years period.
Now a Diabetic educator claims that I was wrong diagnosed. My Pancreas/Liver communication has been effected with Metformin overdose and
it will take some time before I go back to normal. I was advised not to stop Metforming altogether but to cut down with time.
I am a 68 year old confused man. I am not overweight and nobody in my family ever had diabetes.
Can someone help;:confused:
