I am 36 yrs. old and was diagnosed w/type 2 three years ago. I have been on Metformin ever since, but have lost 60 lbs. I am now at a healthy weight for my height for the first time since college. My A1C is usually 5.4 - 5.7. My endocrinologist has left it up to me as to whether or not I want to come off the medicine or not. I've thought about it, but I'm afraid to. Anyone out there who has been on the Metformin but has been able to come off of it and still maintain a healthy A1C??
