... to know if I am ok to do without till I get back to uk. I have all my other medication with me including insulin
You will need the metformin. Did you bring your glucose meter? Keep track of your blood sugar because if the insulin isn't controlling it, which is possible, you will need to see a dr for it.
In all likelihood you are going to have to adjust your long acting insulin. Sometimes yes sometimes no, it just depends on how your body reacts to the missing metformin. When I stop the metformin for MRI's my body reacts differently each time, so, watch your blood glucose numbers and adjust your long acting insulin 1 unit at a time. If your not on long acting insulin you are going to have to watch your blood glucose numbers close and adjust your carbohydrate intake, also your morning fasting number is going to be a bit higher. During the day you can get close to stacking your fast acting insulin just on how you close you do your meals and snacks. Hope this helps you out.
