Metformin After Surgery

Recommended Posts

Has anyone continued on their dose of Metformin after surgery if you had Diabetes 2? My doctor initially told me to cut it in half to 500MG twice a day as I was on 1000MG twice a day before surgery. In the hospital they kept checking my blood sugar and only administered insulin 1 time. When they discharged me they said I did not need to continue anyting but that came from the discharge nurse. Issue with that is I was in ICU and did minimal sipping of mostly Water and a little chicken broth. Now I am drinking Protein Shakes and starting to mix in veggies and fruits into these drinks so I would think that will change the dynamic a bit. Can't speak with my doctor for a couple days now so was wondering what everyone else is doing with Metformin/Insulin as I think I am going to go back to the dosage twice a day but cut it down to 500 MGM until I have my blood formally tested in the next 30 days.
