I was told 12 years ago I have insulin resistance and started taking 1500 mg a day and have moved up to keep my sugars in line over the years. I at one time was down to 150 and had lost 200 pounds but have put on weight while sick over the last few years. My sugar in the morning are between 90 -110 normally. My A1C is about 5.6.

Laura Smith
Type 2. I've been taking time released metformin 1000mg 2x daily over 20 years. I'm 5'9 and weigh about 190. I'm now 61 years old, keeping bs below 140... but choose food wisely. Never over 45 carbs per day. Since I've been watching carb intake, my bs was 90-220. After watching carbs and making sure bs never over 140 (since joining this group), I'm slowly losing my big diabetic tummy!
Btw, metformin alsouse as a youth drug, renews cells, prevents heart disease and Alzheimer's. Very thankful I've been on it so long.
