    Hello. Info

    I don't personally have diabetes, but my boyfriend who I have been dating for 8 months now, has it. He didn't understand how to manage it for years (not even his own mother helped from what I can see) and now that he has me he wants to get it under control. It's hard to understand some of it, but I have been reading about it for a while now, and I just wanna understand and talk to people who do have it.

    A1C levels in seniors

    DOB: 06-18-I940 I have been taking 1500 mg of Metformin daily & my recent a1c levels are 5.5! Today my physician told me it is too low and wants it to be around 7! I also like Metformin for its anticancer & longevity claims. We decided to lower the dosage to 500 mg daily. 1. What is ideal level of a1c for my age group? 2. Claim by an Israeli scientist that metformin not only reduces some types of cancer but also it prolongs life! Your opinion, please.

I am sure there are good doctors in Mexico City....
