Congratulations Michael you have done well, keep up the good work, wish I was back on metformin, alas these days I am on two types of insulin.


KittytheLearnerCook Report 2 Apr 2013 09:53

Well done Michael, that is very good news :-D


Julia Report 2 Apr 2013 09:59

Michael, I take the Metformin twice a day, one morning and night, but also one Glicacide also in the morning.
But, as One Foot says, that is better than the insulin of any type, let alone two different types.

Good Luck, and keep it up.

PS. Has it affected your weight.
