RE: [IP] Double Diabetes?



Hi Michael

Thanks for your comments.  I too found I used less insulin when I went on
the pump 8 years ago and I still think it is wonderful.  I presume you had
Metformin before insulin, the other way round from what I am am proposing to
do.

Hi June,
 
I'm a type 2, really a 1 1/2, since my pancreas barely works....lol yes I
did
take less insulin when I was giving injections but things are so much better
since the pump.
I have been on metformin xr for about 15 years so I cant tell if I've lost
weight or not. make sense?
 
I hope this helps
Michael

Hi Michael

Thank you for your comment.  Are you type 1 or 2?  Did Metformin have any
effect on the amount of insulin you were previously taking and did you lose
any weight?

I could be wrong about this and I do not have a medical degree but if you
are on insulin, according to my endo, you cannot take metformin. I asked
because
another doctor thought I should be on it.    I believe it is actually
counter
indicated according to the data sheet that comes with it due to the risk of
lows.


The thing that worked for me is the best for regulating blood sugar was
exercise.  It took a while and there were lows along the way but I dont
bounce
like I used to.  I hate exercise but I cannot dispute the results.

Hope this helps...

Today it was suggested that as well as 50 years of Type 1, that I might also
have Type 2.  It was suggested I might try Metformin to try to help with
insulin resistance and weight loss.  The doctor has suggested a tablet in
the morning and another before the evening meal.  I have been looking at
Google and this probably sound OK and he has suggested trying it for 1
month.  My question is, has anyone else done this and if so, how did they go
about adjusting their insulin before starting.  I do not want to land myself
with a big hypo if I can avoid it.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if this is the
answer to losing weight?  I think it is worth a try.  Please give your
comments.

June
