How long does it take metformin to completely leave your system?
I've been taking 1500mg for a year. I've lost 30 pounds (5'3 female - went from 190 to 160, and now trying to get down to about 135). For the last 6 months I haven't been dieting at all (eating loads of junk food and bad things) and not exercising at all, really, though I have in the past and that's how I lost the first 30 pounds.

Anyway, I was monitoring my blood sugar during all that, and EVERY TIME I have ever tested my blood, it is always in a normal, non-diabetic/pre-diabetic range. and regardless of what I eat I don't gain any weight, it's strange to me.

anyway, so my doctor said I could come off metformin as a trial, and I'll keep testing my blood to see if suddenly I rapidly gain weight or my blood sugar is really high all the time. I've also joined a gym that I go to everyday, and I'm eating a lot better.

I'm just curious to know how long I have to wait for the metformin to completely leave my system so that all my observations about my weight and blood sugar will be correct.

Metformin should completely leave your system 31 hours after your last dose. One of the side effects of metformin is weight loss, so metformin could have helped you lose some weight. That is great that your blood sugar has normalized. Exercising regularly (5 times per week/30 minutes each session) and losing weight can help reverse diabetes. For your diet, you should try to avoid carbohydrates and try to eat more vegetables and foods with protein, such as chicken and fish.
Good luck!
