I’m not diabetic yet. But I’m concerned about getting it from these meds. Do you guys take good care of yourself because of diabetes? What do you do to treat it?

I just take a med called metformin. I take it 3 times a day. I’ve made absolutely no other changes and my blood tests always come back fine.

I came down with diabetes after taking Zyprexa Olanzapine. I switched to Risperidone. For Diabetes I take Glipizide ER 5mg. Metformin gave me diarrhea.
