So recently I've been diagnosed Diabetic and my doctor put me on a strict 1800 calorie diet. I was just wondering well the diet is low carb,lots of low carb vegetables,low fat dairy products,some meat and lots of wheat bread!I was wondering if the metformin gets your blood sugar down is it really necessary to eat like this.The menu is low fat because they say fat interferes with blood sugar control.I can't really afford to eat different foods everyday.I'm almost ready to give up on this diet.So my main question is metformin is getting my blood sugar down do I have to eat like a bird?Answer Question

If you are not pregnant then the point is to get the weight down, then at some point you will not need the med.

If they put you on a diet plan like that. You must be preity over weight. The metformin by itself is not going to work. A complete diet change is necessary low carb, no sugary food is the key.
