Exercise And Diabetes - A Patient's Guide

A common disincentive is that control may become erratic, ranging from hyper to hypoglycaemia over short time periods. However, the benefits of exercise usually outweigh the risks and knowledge of the interactions of insulin and exercise will minimise any uncertainties. Important benefits of exercise are improved general fitness, better blood lipids, maintenance of ideal weight, lower blood pressure and requirement for overall lower doses of insulin.

    I started right off the bat with 500mg 2x daily, and have absolutely no side effects. Actually its kind of made me worry that its not working for me. But I'm glad I'm not the only odd ball with no side effects. as a matter of fact, I had the "side effects" before I even started taking Metformin, and I always felt crummy. But now that I'm taking it I actually feel a lot better. :]
