metformin raises my blood sugar level
after years of controlling my sugar , my A1c started rising this year , when it reached 9.3 I agreed to increase my metformin, from 2 pills a day to 4 pills, but soon after 3 weeks I noticed my levels ( tests) were higher . normally in the AM ( fasting for 8 hours) I tested mid 8.5 , now on increased levels of metformin I am testing 13.2.
2 hours after meals test before metformin was 7.3, now it is 13.2. sometimes even higher. I can't figure out what is going on , and why is my sugar levels going up when I am taken a med that suppose to bring them down? I am taking 500mg 4 times a day , any ways I will being seeing my doctor soon and I hope he can answer this question. but thought I would ask this group if they ever heard of levels going up after taken metformin or heard of any medical conditions that may cause this .
