You will still get some carbs from your vegetables. They don't have much, but they have enough. Metformin does more to increase you sensitivity to insulin than to actually lower your blood sugar directly. Maybe pick up a cheap glucose monitor from the store? The pricey part is the test strips, so check with the pharmacy counter as to which ones are cheapest (Wal-Mart has the Reli-On brand, I used to get those for $20/month without insurance, and the tester was only about $10). That way you can keep an eye on yourself, and you will KNOW for sure if your blood sugar drops.
I would do it, and keep taking the Metformin. Can you call the doctor and just talk to her or the nurse on the phone? They don't normally charge for that service.
