My GFR is 47. Should I be taking Glucophage for my type 2 diabetes?

I cannot give you medical advice without knowing your complete medical history and performing a physical examination. Patients who have kidney disease and Type 2 diabetes mellitus do have an increased risk of complications when they take Metformin (Glucophage), but the risk versus benefit can only be determined by your physician.
