Diabetes Symptoms Quiz

Taking a diabetes symptoms quiz can give you a quick indication of whether you are suffering from possible pre-diabetes or full-blown diabetes.

    Okay, so I have an MRI with a contrast dye next week. Both my GP and Diabetes nurse advised to stop the Metformin at least 24 hrs before, and use Sitagliptin as a substitute if my sugars were a bit high.
    However, checked with the radiologist today who said (paraphrased), "it's okay to continue with Metformin with the MRI contrast, but not with a CT, so you'll be fine."
    Clearly I will take the ultimate advice from the consultant who referred me, but just though I'd ask if anyone has had an MRI with contrast recently?
    Cheers,
    Paul
