  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Was on Metformin (1000 mg per day), which was recently increased with a goal of 2000 mg per day (gradual increase). In the AM, I usually start with a cup of coffee, then breakfast, followed by more coffee (two cups per day). I take metformin immediately following meals. I fix up my coffee with organic half & half, and pure stevia. When drinking coffee, or dairy products, I experience severe upset stomach, without bowl and abdominal sounds. Is it possible I developed a form of lactose intolerance? This is the "only" dairy I use and prefer to use unsweetened almond milk in place of dairy, except for coffee. This morning, as an experiment, I decided not to fix any coffee and the symptoms have subsided so far today.
