Q: I'm a diabetic take 4 metfoemin a day 500 ml sugar only goes down a little it's alwats over 300 shouldn't it go down more

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Read and understood your history of taking the Metformin in the said dosage and yet the sugar remains higher than 300.
Yes, you should get your dosages or the medicines adjusted to keep the sugars in the range of 100 to 150 maximum.
Consult your Physician ASAP and get going for better complication-free life.

Hope this helps.
