IR test already on Met.

Postby Lenny1 » Sun Apr 06, 2008 4:04 pm

Hello all,

I am TTC and have been taking 2000 mg of SR met a day for 3 weeks now and before that was on only 500mg a day.

Over the past year I have put on about 2 stone and most if not all of it is around my middle to the point where I have stretch marks that have appeared over the last couple of weeks. I am tired all the time I have to have about 2 naps a day when I used to be able to have very little sleep and be fine.

I have been diagnosed with IBS but if I eat certian stuff by gas problems are horrendous...

Do you think it could be IR what tests do they do to find out if you do have it? Can they test you if you are already taking met?

What can anyone recommend to solve the problem I have to loose weight from my middle as it's so bad for you also to help with the tiredness etc?

I am at the end of my tether so any advice would be so gratefully recieved.

Many Thanks
