Watch your CARB intake. Low Carb (30/grams/day) works in many cases as well as meds w/o the side effects. Dr Bernstein's approach is working for me.

I'm taking 1000mg morning and night and 100mg of Xelevia at lunch. This has all helped and my HA1c is down to 6% from 14% in May.

Comment by Todd T. on October 18, 2012 at 6:47am

4 months ago after my HA1c went up to 7.2, my doctor prescribed an extra 500 mg just before bed. I was skeptical but continued. Well my HA1c came in at 6.4 last week. What is the max dose? Any of you experience success with an increase? Perhaps it was a combination of other things.

I have been on Metformin for as long as I can remember. I joined this group so I can learn more about it.

If I am getting an X-Ray when should I stop taking my meds? So, that my kidneys will not get harmed.
