I don't find that to be true at all as far as hunger goes, or putting on
weight, but you can go low if you're not careful. I used to be on 4mg
daily and 500mg metformin. Now I'm on 2mg daily and 500mg metformin. The
combination works well for me. YMMV
This is yet another example of how "Type 2 diabetes" turns out to be a bunch of different diseases sharing a common symptom.
One of these days, probably long after it will do anyone here much good, when they see someone with abnormal blood sugar they'll be able to do some gene scans that show what gene is affected and hence what treatment is recommended.
For now, though, we have no choice but to educate ourselves and then try the different approaches and see which ones work for us.
One thing is for sure. Given the small selection of people active on these newsgroups, there are a surprising number of people who seem to be insulin sensitive type 2s, so yet another one of those sweeping generalizations bites the dust.
Not all type 2s are obese, not all type 2s are severely insulin resistant, not all type 2s spike after eating carbs, not all type 2s have elevated fasting blood sugars, not all type 2s can control blood sugar with exercise and diet, it goes on and on. . . .
