Yanno, I'm starting to stress out here, just a bit. 

Mr Realist is sick. Again.

Here's what kills me--he never, ever got sick this many times prior to them putting him on the Metformin for diabetes.

I'm doing some research on metformin and immune system. So far, nothing I've read is good. Seems like it's depleting his B-12 levels, and that's what's causing him to catch colds so damned easily.

If any of you are diabetic and on metformin and are having the same issue, let me know what you're doing about it, please.

PS--it doesn't help that we're on day 21 of no income for Mr Realist. Hopefully he hears back from unemployment today.

  1. Sadly, I'm not going to be able to offer much help. I was only on met for a couple of weeks after Pip was born (to help my body come down off the massive amounts of insulin I was taking during pregnancy). I didn't have any immune issues, but it did kick my IBS into overdrive.

    Sending up prayers for swift healing, for some clarity as to how to manage the immune issues, and for the job situation.


Be safe out there.
