I'm waiting for the results of a blood test today but the practice nurse said that on the basis of the last one I'm almost certainly diabetic: level was 7.1 and should be 6
She said if I am diabetic the gp will probably prescribe Metformin: she already knows that my diet is very healthy and that I exercise, but I am overweight and have been for most of my life since birth.
What experiences have other people had with this medication? The list of "side" (ie unwanted) effects is very daunting, except for the weight loss one
Thanks in advance. I'm on 3 other forums with patient.info and have found them very helpful, so I'm assuming this one will be too
