Here is a good India vendor for Metformin.  I ordered 550 Metformin SR 1000 mg. for $100 which is their minimum order.  They pay for Air shipping.  You have to pay to wire money to there bank.  $25 at my bank.  No Rx, no credit card or pay pal.   I have used these people for my Rapamycin, so they are reliable.  The Metformin is manufactured by Merck.  Takes 10-15 days.

email for quote.

So I think I got scammed, buypharma may have sent me fake extended release metformin. I can't tell from the packaging but I can tell from the morning glucose test. If I took it before bed, peak serum levels should be about 8 hours later. I took my glucose 8 hrs later when I woke up and I'm still at 117. Either nothing short of extended fasting stops this problem of high fasted blood glucose in the mornings or it's not metformin.

Nothing short of extended fasting stops it in my experience. My son in law says Metformin doesn't work. He is type 1

My personal experience, along with several others I know, has been that Metformin usually brings BG down by about 10 points for people who have T2 or who are pre-diabetic / Syndrome X (poor insulin sensitivity). However, that's with the non-extended release version. (T1 is completely different).

 

High fasting BG is a little more complex in some people, though. One thing that can happen is that your BG actually drops in the middle of the night, followed by an adrenaline surge, which brings it back up, often to higher than you want it to be. For that reason, taking BG-lowering supplements before bed can sometimes backfire, causing higher-BG in the morning. Red wine is one notorious culprit. Some people actually find that having a little honey before bed, or something similar, results in *lower* fasting BG by morning.

 

For BG-control, at least, Metformin is best used with or before carb-containing meals, IMO.

This helps, maybe I should just stick with fasting. The problem is my A1C is back up to 5.4% from 5.1% last year and I'm confused as to why considering that last year was the first time I'd ever done extended fasting beyond 72 hrs, 6 rounds of 120 hour fasts at once per month. I brought my BG down and it sort of had what I thought would be a lasting effect but it came back up in Jan. Also my A1C, which I thought would be lower as a result of fasting, is now higher. I don't get it.

Fasting can raise blood glucose levels if your liver is over-compensating by gluconeogenesis.  Could show up on A1C. 

You might be overdoing the fasting? More than 24 to 48 hours might trigger different metabolic pathways than shorter fasts.

 

The bible mentions that at that time observant Jews fasted twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday.  Sunset to sunset. Maybe they knew something.

  I ve heard its because of RBC cells starts to live longer that was estimated as average for HbA1c calculation(6 weeks) and its common phenomena to see it stay or go up in low carb community. Diabetics with high BG see the opposite tendency - their HbA1c doesn't go high proportionally to the average BG level rise.

  Overall, it's a shitty marker, if you search you could find Peter Attia ranting about how useless it is.

 

P.S. Ive read the beginning of the thread and probably my post is irrelevant here as your BG raised too.

Anyone getting metformin online without a prescription? My usual pharmacy dried up. The ones mentioned above are either out of stock of have other issues. https://www.pharmacychecker.com only lists sites that require a prescription ... or say they do. Maybe they don't actually require it. I've seen some just give lip service.

 

As for the A1c, yeah, according to my A1c I'm running about 160 average, but my sugars spike way above that every day, so I agree that it's not a reliable measure of AGE accumulation via glycosylation.

  Consider keto diet, as far as I ve read (and have a small experience myself) insulin resistance steadily falls during keto and in a year or so one could go back to a normal diet and still will be at normal sugar levels.

Which metformin do you buy?


Has anyone tried ordering Metformin from AlldayChemist? Did they stop taking credit cards?  :|o
