Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Gluconorm like any other anti diabetic medication can cause overweight but it is not the only trigger. Many factors count. Yes small carb and high protein diet matters. But what matters the most is diet and calorie restriction. Small meals with mostly fruits and vegetables will help. Losing weight will help diabetes as well.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
