Recently I was diagnosed with type two diabetes. My general practitioner immediately prescribed metformin. I found a new endocrinologist and made an appointment with him to discuss an action plan. He immediately put me on Jardiance given my heart disease history. I just started taking the Jardiance and have felt fatigued and out of sorts. My blood sugar went from normal on metformin to 155. Can Jardiance elevate blood sugar?
Higher blood sugar on Jardiance?

I am experiencing a similar problem. My blood sugars are running higher than when I was on Metformin Therefore, I am in question as well. My sugar readings in the morning when I get up are in the 170s and near 200 reading. My readings taken thereafter before I go to bed are in the high 200s. So, what is up with this?
Many doctors tend to over prescribe "out of an abundance of caution" Try 2000 mg metformin a day. Also try a different endocrinologist. Forget about GP for diabetes. Keep trying different drugs until you find the best combination.
