... as prescribed. Blood sugar is usually in the border line range (up or down) when tested with strips. So, if I am not taking metformin as prescribed and keep my a1c average at 6.4, should I take Trulicity. Doctor prescribed it.
If I'm reading this right, you've been prescribed metformin and trulicity and without taking either you have a an AIC of 6.4.
If that's true, then why is your doctor prescribing Trulicity? Diabetes is generally considered under control if the A1C is below 7. Metformin is the first drug of choice being cheap, a pill and having generally positive side effects.
I can't figure out why you would prescribe Trulicity here. Your borderline between diabetes and pre-diabetes. 6.4 is an average blood sugar of 137, diabetes is diagnosed at 125 and normal is 100
From what your telling me, I'd take the metformin and ditch the trulicity. I'd ditch trulicity even if I didn't take the metformin
