10 Delicious Diabetic-friendly Smoothies

Having diabetes doesn’t mean you need to deny yourself all the foods you love, but you do want to make healthier food choices.

    Metformin - 1000mg x2 day has it caused any weight gain with anyone?

    A1C normal for 4 years, should I ask doc to reduce cause I feel I'm gaining weight the longer I'm taking it, but I have no other side effects. Weight gain is not a phobia/image thing it's a health concern only because I'm taking gabapentin 900mg 3xday. see my concern

    You're A1C is normal you want to stop what is making it normal. That makes no sense. Metformin usually causes weight loss, in fact is used for weight loss. I would suggest the gabapentin is the problem. It is known for weight gain.

    Not meaning to be mean sounding cause that's not what I want anyone to read this as. Like I said, weight gain is not a worry about image. I'm not asking this question to be taken as shallow of a person as that. I have so MANY help problems stacked up due to a severe toxicity poisoning that I have not recovered from and won't due to the poison that took place from silicone implants leaking for 10 yrs. I was so sick, took that long to find Holistic surgeon 200 miles from home that had knowledge. 3 surgeries later- 2 weeks apart (3 because my chest cavity was black mold and fungus, to go in and scrap out dead tissue replace clogged drainage tubes and 6 month bedridden and nurse care. so yes weight gain would be a concern since I can barely get around now, do you understand a little more now. This site is to help understand meds. I am not planning on stopping my Metformin. That would be dumb since I do want my A1C to stay normal range.
