Metformin er

Patient : I have been taking metformin 2000 mg twice a day for about 15 years. I am considering changing to the er version 1x daily. I have lost 20 pounds in the last 3 months and my sugar has improved but not perfect 160, in the morning, it was 250-300 for quite a while. I am continuing with the high protein, low fat, and only low carb (50 max daily) vegies, no sugar or starch. I allow myself 2 alcoholic drinks a week but don't usually have them. I am wondering the dosage I should order.
