    They did iron panel. Do you mean iron saturation etc? I had those blood work and iron saturation was low too. But ferritin was high.

    Wow. That sounds like a good plan for diet and exercise. I wanted to do like this too but I am not motivated enough myself because of my pain. Trying hard to do it consistently now.

    I felt the same with metformin. I had diarrhea and stomach upset for a while. I started with 500mg twice a day and then increased to 1000mg twice a day. When they increase the dosage,I felt so nauseated and dizziness. Read that these are normal with that medication.

    I am taking this increased dosage for 2+ months now. Still have those side effects from it.

    Do you use any home diabetes kit to monitor?

    How long did you have this stomach upset from the metformin? Did it stabilize after a while?

    Have you done any endoscopy or colonoscopy?
    Need to focus on gut flora and explore probiotics. Bad bacteria like H. Pylori alone can create symptoms like IBS. You may need to consult GI. If gut health not good, it affects skin and create other issues. With age there can be changes. A specialist or full body check may help.

    I am not diabetic, my levels are below pre-diabetic stage. But it has increased drastically from the previous reports (usual periodic health check ups); hence my doctor put me on metformin for 2 months to put my insulin where it belongs. Kind of regularizing method to prevent me from diabetes as my dad and brother are diabetic, so she thinks I might get it given my hormonal issues after hysterectomy.
    I take only 500mg per day, but given my prolonged gastritis conditions my stomach hurts very bad.

    The internet says these symptoms will fade out once the body gets used to it. I take the tablets with antacids now and it is helping.
    Its been less than a weak since I started all these medication

    Nope, no colonoscopy done. Did endoscopy sometimes back and it said I have mild hiatus hernia and GERD. Also tested for H. Pylori as my doctor highly suspected my symptoms are related to this. She also did a stool analysis, but all turned out to be negative.
    She has asked me to avoid red mean, grains and sugar completely and limit carb intake to reduce inflammation. I will see whether it changes my gut health in the coming days

    Did your stomach problems improves with time?
    My H and brother are taking metformin and I don't recall them having side effects of this medicine.

    But, given my gastric condition, I have upset stomach and acidity even if I take paracetamol. So, this is expected
