Hi, this is Beth. I just introduced myself on 9/22/09 I believe after I had returned from my doctor where I was diagnosed with diabetes. He put me on the Metformin. Now this morning, his office calls me and says that my labs I had done on Tuesday shows low kidney function and that I need to stop the Metformin and my Mobic (which I take for severe arthritis.) Now I have to go back for an ultrasound of my kidneys and something to do with my renal function and more lab work. To tell you the truth, I was so shocked that I really didn't hear much of anything after "low kidney function." He is suppose to call me in some other medicine, but I can't remember the name and as of this writing he still hasn't called it in to my pharmacy. Needless to say, I am totally FREAKED out. Has this happened to anyone else? Can anyone give me a clue?? I want to know good or bad. Thank you for listening.

Success to All,
Beth

One day at a time, sweet Jesus.

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is a quiet voice at the end of the day, saying,"I will try again tomorrow."
