I had a checkup with my endocrinologist yesterday. I've been seeing her for about 7 years, for 2 different conditions, and I've been taking 2 different medications. One of those conditions is diabetes, and I've been taking 2250mg of metformin daily for over 5 years. As a result of my hard work with my diet and exercise program, the last 2 A1C checks have brought my numbers down to 5.6%. So yesterday we cut my metformin down by half, and eliminated the other med entirely! If my A1C stays where it is when I have it checked again, I will be off the metformin entirely. And as much as I have liked her, she said there would be no need to see her anymore - I could save money on my specialist co-pay, and have my PCP monitor my A1C! So I'm doing a happy dance on my way out to yoga class!
