I am diebetic !!

Hey guys,

I have been pondering this question for a while now, I had been taking met for about 5yrs and then found out in feb i was diabetic so is that because of the met or would i have naturally become diabetic??

Some of my family are diabetic too, so was wondering.

Thanks for taking the time to read think :)

Hi,

I very much doubt the met would have caused it and diabetes type 2 is hereditary so if you have family members who have diabetes it is most likely to have happened naturally.

As metformin helps insulin resistance it would seem possible that perhaps if you hadn't been taking metformin you might well have become diabetic sooner?

Hope you don't mind me asking but, how are you being treated now? Are you continuing with Metformin, or have you been changed to a different diabetes drug?

I was wondering because trying to avoid diabetes is one of my main reasons for taking metformin, but it has often occurred to me whether

a) taking it could make diagnosis of diabetes more difficult, because it might already be acting to control blood sugar levels so high levels would not show in a blood test?

b) if I do go on to develop diabetes how would they treat me if I am already on metformin, which seems to be the drug of choice for treating type 2 diabetes?
