    Can Metformin and other diabetes medication be taken forever, so to speak, or does everyone eventually end up on insulin (injections)?

  2. luceeloo

    As far as I understand, Metformin can be taken forever, but as Diabetes is a progressive disease it's possible that more medication and/or insulin may eventually need to be added to the regime.
    For example, I started on Metformin 15 months ago, but have just had dapagliflozin added because my blood sugar is not fully controlled with just metformin alone. But the next person may be on metformin for many many years with no need for additional medication. Everyone is different.

  3. Bluetit1802

    It may be progressive if the pancreas deteriorates, but doesn't have to be if you keep tight control and your pancreas works reasonably well. Everyone is different, much also depends on how long you had uncontrolled high BS before diagnosis and how much damage was done to the pancreas. I'm not on any medication and hope to keep it that way with diet.

The meals and snacks in this 7-day 1,500-calorie meal plan follow both the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) eating pattern and the American Heart Association recommendations for a heart-healthy diet.

    I'm newly-diagnosed as diabetic, and have been taking Metformin for about a month. Is one of the side-effects insomnia? I'm finding difficult to sleep although I feel very tired due to M.E>

  2. azure

    Welcome @JSDR
    I don't take Metformin so I can't comment on that, but any diabetes diagnosis can cause stress and affect sleep.
    Have you tested your blood sugar when you can't sleep? Are you on insulin too?

  3. Art Of Flowers

    The problem I have with metformin is that it makes me want to go to the loo in the middle of the night. I never had this before taking it. The fractured sleep pattern is making me feel tired.

    Type 2 diabetes and ibs

    I've had symptoms of ibs for last three months and I did have it about 30 years ago which cleared up nicely with the help of peppermint oil capsules, trying them now. I've had a scan and blood tests which were clear but wondered whether anyone with diabetes had had similar problems? My meds are Metformin, gliclazide and sitaglitin although to be honest I've been on them a while. Using ginger tea for nausea but tried a few things to shift the abdominal pain without success. I wondered if I need to make some changes to my diet?

  2. carmel83758

    When I had abdominal pain very badly 24 7 I got rid of it by taking a lot of biotics. Aferwards my inners were better than they had been before.
