Is it any side effects / risk to take Metformin from 250mg (1 time daily) to 1000 mg (2 times daily) given that glucose rate is 7.1 for taking no food & drinks over 12 hours during the glucose test?

I cannot understand the questions but I think your question is in fact whether treatment with metformin is alright with a fasting glucose of 7.1 mmol/l. What I can say is this is perfectly alright under certain circumstances. You just have to consult your doctor.
