    I have had that happen, but only after eating too many carbs so that my glucose level went above 160 or so. Roast chicken with string beens shouldn't do that!

    If I eat too many carbs I will get tired but it doesn't seem like chicken and beans would be too many carbs. Are you taking 1000 or 2000 of metformin? Your before meal number (152) is a little high. What are your other numbers during the day.
