Ok, Metformin isn't supposed to cause a low reading. Yesterday my fasting reading was 92. Just before lunch it was 72. Two hours later it was 104. Just before dinner it was 63. I've not been that low before. For breakfast I ate a "trail mix" I make of high fiber cereal and some raw cashews/almonds. For lunch I had a bowl of Fiber One raisin bran with a half pint of 1% milk and a small apple. For dinner I ate out, having a cup of soup and a dinner salad. I had drive after dinner and my reading was 70 about 15 minutes after I ate. I drank 1/4 cup of orange juice and my reading went up to 90, so I drove home. I slept from 7:00-midnight when my husband got home from work. My reading was 81 so I ate two crackers with peanut butter and went back to bed. Isn't this really unusual for taking metformin alone? I usually supplement with cinnamon, garlic, and bitter melon, but I didn't do that yesterday with these readings. Also, the day before I had gotten a pneumonia shot. Could that have caused this?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
