I'm diabetic. Got my a1c. Checked its at a 9 so I'm trying to cut out carbs and sugar how many carbs per day should I have ?

Listen to your body

Carbs
The easiest way to control diabetes is to avoid carbs that turn quickly into sugar like sugar, sweet fruit, processed grains, and alcohol and to use instead vegetables and beans that require more digestion and contain fiber as well. If each of 6 small meals has these good carbs, a little high quality protein, and good fats and if one moves for 10 minute each time one eats HgA1c will drop.

I'm taking 50 mg per day of metformin for type 2 diabetes. my after meal blood sugar levels are sometimes between 190-210. is that a problem?

Yes

Metformin
You probably mean 500 mg per day, as it does not come in 50mg pills. This is a very low dose of metformin. Also, it depends how long after your meal you are measuring your blood sugar. Typically we like to use the 2 hour post-meal blood sugar. If your 2 hour post-meal blood sugar is 200, that is too high and you do need to address it with your doctor to work on getting that lower.

How much sugar intake a day for a pre-diabetic?

Carbohydrates

Carbs
Focus on carbohydrates as a whole not just sugar. A diet less than 180 grams a day of carbohydrate can be helpful. Also keep in mind that weight loss through a diet low in calories will also be helpful.
