Hmmmmm... very unusual presentation indeed. Doesn't appear that you're Type 1 (else, your A1c would definitely be high, not low). With such high BGLs though, it's obvious that your body is having difficulty metabolizing carbs (aka Diabetes). The Metformin will help your cells use the insulin you produce more effectively. The Levemir (insulin) will "supplement" your existing production so that your pancreas isn't overworked. Sounds like a logical starting regimen (the insulin and Metformin) and hopefully it won't take very long for things to level out. You can probably expect a few adjustments to your meds for a bit but, eventually you find what works to keep your BGLs in range.
Curious - has your doc lined-up any nutrition classes for you yet? Can't tell you how important diet is with Diabetes. Get on that learning bandwagon and I guarantee that knowledge will give you the best tool in managing this condition
Let us know how things work out,
