Hello -- my father is a diabetic, and I know that I have some problems with blood sugar, so I can learn from you about diabetes prevention, maybe. I'm glad you've joined our team. Sorry to hear you don't like Almond Milk, I love it. Maybe the Lactose Free milk will continue to work for you.

Well I've been living for the past several years (about 5 years with this issue) its gotten worse since I had a hysterectomy on May 2008 (as in before then I only had an issue within an hour of taking the metformin that i was taking three times a day - am a type 2 diabetic and have Polycystic ovarian syndrome, plus porphyria).

Anyhow after the OP I was unable to drink my beloved milk (use to be able to drink 4L of it without any issues what so ever, but after the OP I couldn't even stumic 1 oz of the stuff - took me almost a year before I could drink more then an oz of the stuff without having a funny tummy - but I also started to notice that if I had anything that had it in it I'd be running to the girls room for a good hour or so (so I started only drinking the milk when I went to bed thus waking up in the morning and more times then naught doing a good BM)

Anyhow, I tried to switch over to Soy milk, but that was a no go I'm still allergic to soy milk and soy in general, tried almond milk (big mistake that one), rice milk was alright but with being diabetic its a no go and goats milk well great I can't afford the cost of the stuff. So I'm now drinking Lactose Free milk and it seems alright so far (just started yesterday had my first 12 oz of milk in a year).

But I'm not sure as yet if I'm still going to have issues or if it was only the milk that was cauing the issue all along or was it the OP that triggered it or what? THe last allergy test I had showed no allergies that I didn't already know about, (nothing about gluton or the like).

My endo dismissed my being tired to the washroom to being on the metformin itself because its one of the side effects, but I've never heard of anyone with this issue with it for this long, most people who have this issue with it its for a short time then it goes away, some just stop taking the drug all together - now I know I could stop the drug if needed, but I've fianlly started to get control of my diabetes (insulin therpy plus the met) and I've noticed I don't need the insulin all the time to keep it in check but if I miss a dose of met i pay for it with glucose control issues all day long).
