even complex carbs raise blood sugar (BG) so watch them too.

what drugs are you on?
what is your BG...  before you eat, 1 hour after, before your walk, during, after.

cant give advice without knowing that stuff

Metforman helps to protect the kidneys, it also reduces insulin resistance and restricts the liver from dumping sugar into your blood.

it is considered a very safe drug
some people get gastric upset with met. until your body gets used to it.  a slow release met is available and provides relief for some people.

Hi,
Welcome, though i'm sure y ou did not really want to come here.

Your result shows you are diabetic. Truely normal results should be 4 - 5.

Metformin is an excellent first line drug for diabetes and it may help you get your sugars under control.

Do strictly limit carbohydrates. Would likely be best to limit grains and flours and starchy veges. You can test 2 hours after eating different foods and see how your blood sugar responds and then use this informaiton to determine which foods you can eat and which you should avoid.  2 hours after eating your blood sugar should be < 140, but more ideally < 120 or even  80 - 100 range (which is truely normal).

Read up. Diabetes is a manageable condition.  Please ask any questions you have and we'll try to help you.
