Thank you for your question. It is possible that your shaking may be due to your uncontrolled blood sugar. Despite the fact that you are taking Metformin (Glycomet GP 2), it may be causing your blood sugar to become too low or it may not be adequately treating your elevated blood sugar. We encourage you to return to your doctor to have a your blood sugar measured, and determine if you need to have our medication dosage adjusted to prevent these symptoms from occurring. In diabetic patients, when the blood sugar becomes too high, one experiences metabolic ketoacidosis which can initially produce symptoms for shivers/shakes, but can eventually lead to loss of consciousness. Please see your doctor.
