Respected sir, 
Please help me as I am not able to understand the way doctor's advice.
Being a diabetic family doctor advised me to have metformin one tablet (fasting 120 and pp 200)during lunch half an hour before.
After two months I went with my lab result fasting 110 and pp 170)to the doctor andwasinformed that the doctor has gone on vacation to u s a and was. Directed to another doctor.
I saw the new doctor and he advised me to have the one tablet after food .
Your suggestions as to which is the best was to have this tablet whether to have half an hour before or after food,  I am72, hale and healthy, weighing 60 kg and doing regular morning walk and have lunch rice and evening tiffin like dosa or chap pathis .
I do have twice coffee with sugar and of course taking fruits of all types plus limited sweets and not regular.
I have sugar testing gadgets and sometimes my pp goes down to 90/100 that too during evening time
Thanking you in anticipation for the guide lines.
Few of my friends thought that I may not be diabetic but age may be the reason of glands secretion may be slow and suggested not to have tablet but do regular exercise. I did for a week without tablet but regular exercise instead of half an hour did morning one hour and evening half an hour and my fasting 100 and my pp 160.
 Shall I continue metformin tab., or to have once in three days as I have confidence on yourself.
