    Hi can anyone help me please? I've decided to come off metformin for a while, I want to see if I can manage my diet more on my own, as soon as I was diagnosed I was put onto metformin however I would like to know if there would be any side affects. I stopped taking it aprox 1wk ago.

    You really shouldn't do this without the support of your doctor. I would strongly suggest you talk to your GP or DSN about this as soon as possible. If your HbA results have come down then they may well let you try it. However, if it's because the metformin isn't working for you or is producing nasty side effects, there are alternatives you could try. Either way, you really need to talk to them as soon as you can.
    As for the side effects, I only had them when I was on the stuff but they went away when I was taken off it again.

    I would agree Alison, coming off metformin without good advice is not a good move, with out discussing it with a doctor or DN.
    They may well let you do it, when my meds were changed, I had a HbA1c test (already done) other wise would of done another one due to problems. Then after a while had another test to see what effect the med change had done to the HbA1c levels.
