I am in the initial stage of diabetes. I have been diagnosed before a year only. I walk 7 km a day and five days a week. Still, my present medication does not maintain my glucose levels.
My average fasting blood sugar level is 140. I am currently on Glycomet 250 and I am wondering if I should switch to 500 mg SR. I am also concerned about if this stronger medication will affect my kidney function.
My medication is only dealing with control of glucose level and no dietary supplements to improve pancreas function. Do you suggest any medication or supplements?
During sonography for another issue, my doctor mentioned that I have a lot of fat around the liver, which I guess can also contribute to diabetes. I am doing exercise to reduce overall fat.
Do you suggest something else to reduce this fat? I am a 32 year old male. My height is 170 cm and my weight is 82 kg.

Thank you doctor,
I will start with Glycomet SR 500 mg. Can you confirm what is the best time to take this? I will increase my exercise and improve my diet and nutrition.

You can take Metformin in the morning after breakfast or in the night after dinner. Choose the time most convenient for you and always stick to that time of the day. That way your body will understand the pattern.
