Just started taking Metformin and whilst reading the literature is says NOT to have alcohol???
My diabetes nurse never mentioned this and I'm guessing that it'll still be ok in moderation (which apparently is not half a bottle of rose wine as that made me feel horrid). Anyway, metformin taking is quite new - about 2 weeks and only 500mg morning and night.
So, really looking for confirmation that everyone on this board taking metformin is not teetotal. My sugars aren't too bad and if I were just to have a fasting blood test and HBA1C you wouldn't know I was diabetic, it's the GTT that's a big fail for me.
Thanks in advance.
