I agree, this has better effects for me than metformin. I could still get up very high, but often it would cap highs at about 14 mmol/L (250 mg/dl) that I’d otherwise be struggling to get down.
My most recent A1c came back at 6.8%, which is creeping a little higher than I’d like (I’d like to get back to 6.0-6.5%, the last three have been above that). So I’m going to be looking at ways to get back down a bit. I may give SGLT2 inhibitors another try, though for me side-effects hit within six weeks even at a 5 mg dose, so I don’t think that’s promising. I have wondered, though, if I could use them on a short-term basis in the week or two before my cycle, as that’s the time I’m most prone to stubborn highs and it can be hard to adjust basal exactly the right amount without then ending up low.
