eventually, it will get back to 120 or less, mine was 300/mg, after I start to take metformin, it helped me to lower my sugar level. course, it will be more effective with exercise and diet

I take 2000 mg of metformin a day. Plus on 2 different insulins. It's hard to eat as a diabetic I've tried it and my sugars don't change. My sugars are 200-250 everyday. It sucks being a diabetic.

May be you should also watch your diet? Do you exercise every day?

I've only been on Metformin for a few days. It's making me sick. Does this settle down or is this supposed to help me lose weight?

When taking metformin you have to really watch your diet. It’s very hard. I am taking farxiga.’, and glimpiride with the metformin. I am actively watching my diet and timing my meals. My fasting blood sugar was 125 this morning . I have been in the low 100s all day. I have to monitor my blood sugar frequently to stay there. I will not eat until my timer goes off or I feel blood sugar dropping. I also purchased the Prodigy glucose monitor and strips. Affordable prices
GOOD LUCK and GOD BLESS YOU
