... and have been on it for about 2-1/2 years. I had one fasting glucose test back then that was pretty high (28) but since then I have been within normal range (about 6.5) when the 3 month average blood tests have been done. What I am wondering is if it is common among others to find themselves getting other health issues, like high blood pressure and cardiac issues after taking this drug for a while, and if there seems to be a connection between this drug and developing these other health problems? Your comments are really appreciated! Soul
