Common Questions and Answers about Metformin not digesting
But now, when I take my metformin (with or without food), I get a yellow, frothy stool. And I am noticing that I am not always digesting my metformin. I find it at times with my bowel movements. Is this anything to be alarmed about or just something I may see more often since my surgery?
if I even have it for lunch it comes up all night be careful with the spicy stuff. I'm not sure if your overweight or not but if you have gained weight lately that can do it too. Oh and side note I'm assuming you have PCOS since your on metformin... high glucose levels can cause gastroparesis.
I'm not a medical professional, just the mother of a type 1, so please keep that in mind. My question would be: When are are you injecting the Novolog? Right when you eat? Or earlier. My daughter's doc wants her to inject her Novolog 10-15 minutes before any food, so it has a chance to start working first. You have to be careful with this, because if you inject too early you can get low.
We then tried to stop my BP meds thinking they could be the cause, but I could not stay off of them long enough to make a determination. I did have a drinking problem a few years back but I seem to have that under control. To the point I only have 1 to 2 drinks a month. I do have diabettes and I am Metformin to control it.
What else could be the cause?
i am a newly diagnosed diabetic and dont understand highs and lows do not have a nacheene as i was told odnt bother testing it wont tell us much any way
a few months ago i started feeling very tired and unwell i was drinking all the time and eating like anything i could get my hands on was allyas still am allways very hungry any way i started getting what i thought were sleep starts panic attacks twitching limbs and flashes in my vision when i visited my gp i explained all of these symptoms had
I was diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic 7 years ago at the age of 63. I was pescribes a short acting insulin with meals and and 46 units of a long acting insulin each morning because I could not tolerate metformin. I have been well-controlled with my "normal" fasting glucose ranging between 6 and 8 mmol/l (108 and 144 mg/dl). About 9 months ago I woke up one morning with a reading of 4.7 (84.6) and in subsequent days the lower readings continued.
Signs of Deficient Stomach Acid
Gas, bloating and burping shortly after a meal could be lack of HCl
Feeling of fullness or food notdigesting
Heartburn and/or gastric relux (sometimes too much HCl but most often not enough)
Foul smelling stools
Loose stools in the early morning
Dialated blood vessles on the cheeks and nose - Rosacea
Pernicious anemia or iron deficiency
Nausea especially after taking vitamins and minerals
Weak or crack
we figured out that my exhaustion was coming from anemia, my thyroid is doing something abnormal but they aren't sure what. I have been on synthroid since I was 12 and am currently not on any because my levels seem to have stabilized somewhat. My anemia stemmed from female issues which resulted in a hysterectomy a couple months ago.
So now that I'm feeling somewhat better I wanted to tackle the elevated BS problem.
I have come to a conclusion that the yellow object that I am seeing in my diarrea stool and at other times are the Metformin tablets that I am taking. I know that other diabetes med are notdigesting and are just being dumped.. what a waste of money. Anybody? I pulled one out and broke it open and it was a powder inside. This morning two showed up again and only this time one wasn't even stained yellow, just white.
And i get these objects even during months/weeks that I'm not taking any supplements, but I do always have to take metformin. cardizem and offbrand zyrtec for severe allergies. I'm going to keep reading on this post thread, since it's such a long one, but just wanted to respond to yours and then I'll keep up with answers. Thanks!
It's getting to the point where some days I'm in bed more than I'm awake, which I know is obviously not good for me. I find it usually happens when I eat pasta or soup with crackers, so I'm guessing it's sugar/carbs related. I can't afford to cut these things out of my diet as I'm on unemployment right now and can barely afford pastas and soups as it is, I'd love to be able to eat lots of vegatables but I can't afford them and they don't last long enough even if I could.
I drove to the hospital and the ER was empty. Not a person in sight! Wow! I told the nurse that I was in extreme abdominal discomfort, nauseous and pain radiating toward my back from my stomach region. Well, somehow that triggered the "high risk heart alert" which got me checked in in record time, and EKG, blood work, and who knows what else.
well, save for the Habba Syndrome now. Not sure what to do about that...not even sure it's related. Probably not.
Anyway, so if you have the nasty, foul suphur burps, see your doc about intestinal obstruction.
(5mg) she is going to see the liver specialist on Mon (22nd) as at her last EUS her pancreas was looking OK but they found gas in her bile and pancreatic duct. They say she is notdigesting her food even on Domperidone and creon and her stools are very pale even yellow like.
I know about the steroid thing but she looks about 7 - 8 months pregnant and isn't really eating. I also had an autoimmune disorder years ago Autoimmune Thrombocytopenia and steroids cleared it up in about 6 weeks.
I can not funtion my normal like and every time it goes away I hope it's for good, but then it comes back and I can not figure out why. I am not drinking any alcohol either. Please give me some advice because I am tired of missing work and time with my family. Thank you.

*I bet at 1 time you wash brain washed by the biggest scam in the world..ATKINS..
I think it is really hard for our loved ones to understand the total fear about what is happening in our bodies if they are not or have not experienced it themselves. I very rarely tell my husband anything anymore, unless I am really, really scared. I come here or call my parents or a good friend. He can't get it. He's been supportive but as the tests continually come back normal, his patience wears thin with the doc visits.
Good luck to all!
these are clusters of white or fleshy hard and sticky plugs-- not filled with anything, but they stick straight out from the pores. They are not bumps. If I rub the area w/ a towel they do not rub off at all. I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again.
Not sure, but I've seen a show on parasites a long time ago, and I just thought of it when I read your post. They showed different people w/different cases of parasites and other things (like a leach in ones man's sinus'). One had insisted he felt something crawling under his skin, he finally saw it in his eye and they were able to help him after that. Sounds awful, I know, but stranger things have happened. Do you remember any insect bites, traveled at all?
A CBC can included a lot or not very much depending on what they check off. It's almost as if they don't care to search for the answers. Hopefully with persistence you will get to the bottom of it. I know rickets ( don't laugh it happens!)can be a result of lack of vitamin D absorption and that is said to hurt quite a bit. Definately have your bones checked for hypocalcemia and various other conditions involving the bones.
Hi! It's my first time posting--hello everyone!
Just have a question that someone might be able to help with...
Ever since I got married I have had a VERY regular 28 day menstrual cycle--never late, never early.
We are trying to get pregnant, and today I am at least five to six days late for my period.
I did a pregnancy test this morning that came up negative.
How reliable is that result since I usually have such a normal cycle?
When I'm out I feel like I'm shaking but my husband says I'm not. I do have constipation but not when this happens. I could have this 2 to 3 times a year or a few years could go by. Whenever, this is very scary and it drains me the rest of the day. What can be done?
) I wanna continue to follow so I can hear about all of your BFPs!
Excited today, the intended parents are coming in town tomorrow to see their first sonogram. We're all (I'm bringing my kiddos along) gonna have lunch together and then head over to the fertility clinic. I can't wait for them to hear the heartbeats :) I've already told my son he's on camera patrol. ha.
Hope all of you are doing well, I think about you daily.
I have my test this Friday so this is going to be one of, if not the, longest week of my life! I too have had some feelings that are just not there anymore but have been replaced with hunger! Fingers crossed!
For anyone that has suffered with OHSS - My left side was quite painful and I put on 2kg within a week! Doctors prescribed ProPass powdered protein daily for one week and it has certainly helped. Apparently the protein draws the fluid out.
Good luck to you all!
