Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
for more than 10 years, up until 5 months ago blood sugar well controlled on metformin/glyburide. The I had a bad episode with raspberry keytone. resulted in uncontrolled blood sugar.
in the last few months my doctor has added levothyroxine, and is in the process of ramping up to find the correct dose.
From this study (2 years ago):
Foods started tasting different about 9 months ago, but it would come and go. now it has gotten much worse. Virtually nothing tastes like it should. Acidic foods taste very bitter. Others foods are just different.
