    Metformin issues


    I admit it: I took metformin for a week, the leading prescribed drug for treatment of type 2 diabetes (59.2 million units prescribed) in the United States alone and taken by 80 million people around the world. This medication has been around for more than half a century and is often touted as a wonder drug for individuals with type 2 diabetes as well as for those living with other health challenges. My reasons for taking metformin were highly personal: I have a genetic predisposition for both prostate cancer and type 2 diabetes (I’m not diabetic but I swing in and out of pre-diabetes based on my daily blood sugar readings), and I’m getting older (who isn’t! I did copious amounts of research and it seemed on all three counts (prostate cancer prevention, managing type 2 diabetes (increasing insulin sensitivity), and anti-aging), it truly was a wonder drug. Oh, and I had also read that pretty much every billionaire in Silicon Valley was on it – mainly for it’s purported life extension benefits (as it can mimic the effect of calorie restriction – see more below). Before I went on it I wanted to get some key blood indicators taken, specifically: So I did that. The plan was to have these indicators measured before taking metformin and then again, one month later. I really wasn’t looking at metformin as a drug – I was looking at it more as a “superfood”. Metformin is a drug prescribed to manage blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Here’s what you should know about what metformin can do for weight loss, as well as why your doctor may prescribe it for you. You may have heard that metformin can also help you lose weight. According to research, metformin can help some people lose weight. However, it’s not clear why metformin may cause weight loss. One theory is that it may prompt you to eat less by reducing your appetite. It may also change the way your body uses and stores fat. Although studies have shown that metformin may help with weight loss, the drug is not a quick-fix solution. According to one long-term study, the weight loss from metformin tends to occur gradually over one to two years.

    The most common medication worldwide for treating diabetes is metformin (Glumetza, Riomet, Glucophage, Fortamet). It can help control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. It’s available in tablet form or a clear liquid you take by mouth with meals. If you’re taking metformin for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, it may be possible to stop. You may be able to manage your condition by making certain lifestyle changes, such as maintaining a healthy weight and getting more exercise. Read on to learn more about metformin and whether it’s possible to stop taking it. Before you stop taking metformin, talk to your doctor to see if this is the right step to take in managing your diabetes. It is best to take metformin after a meal to decrease stomach side effects including diarrhea. Yes it will stop, in one to two weeks after taking them. I did the same, metformins have different side affects, and thats the one ur body chose, as well as mines. I have to cut out doses if I have a funeral to do and dose myself up with loperamide... Because of this, Doctor reduced my Metformin to half of a 500 mg tab twice a day and whole tab 5 mg of Glipizide twice a day (reverse of what I had been taking) about 5 months ago. I panicked once when I got a very hi reading 358 and took 2nd dose too soon, only 2 or 3 hours apart; 1 hr later bg was 58! So if you're having trouble with diarrhea and regular Metformin go to your doctor and have him or her change you over to the extended release and try that. The most common side-effects of Metformin are feeling sick, diarrhea and abdominal pain. there is no way I will deal with diarrhea for Five years it's long overdue to find another doctor. I have read hundreds of people with the same diarrhea problem I think it's time to have 1,000,000 person march on Washington to question this drug that's so many are going through everyone has 1 million different take that take that do the extended take Imodium take Pepto's don't eat fried foods don't do this don't do that and nothing works this is depressing . I’m nauseas every day all day and I don’t know what to do at this point... I'm a Priest in the C/E so it seriously impairs my capability. And so far it's much much better than regular Metformin. I have been having diarrhea about 2 hours after each dose. I, also, take lisinopril for blood pressure and a baby aspirin for heart protection. I like to know what doctors are taking this pill and having diarrhea for months and years at a time but they're quick to push it on everyone else I am not happy about this I'm not going to live with diarrhea I still have to be convinced that I really need to take this pill I had one a1c was a little over seven for the first time I have no symptoms right now I have to question this... And no its not the shell it is the whole pill with powder inside it because I fished it out and examined it. I’ve been on these pills since June starting with 1pill daily and In July I was upped to two a day and that’s when I started seeing them. Dr said it would help prevent miscarriage since I’ve had 2 back to back... Went off Metformin for 5 weeks, checked my sugar twice daily and discovered that the drug did not help me. Recently I've started taking Metformin ER which is the extended release version of Metformin. Try to be patient as these symptoms do not usually last long. It will stop, but when ever u go periods of time without taking ur meds u will go through the side affects each time u start them over. I've been on metformin for a few years now and live every day close to the bathroom. you can't be going out to the loo in the middle of a funeral. I also decided to take an anti-diarrheal tablet (over the counter drug loperamide 2 mg) with the meds, which helps a lot, but I still have diarrhea nearly every day and several bms every day. For those who find it hard with metformin, I accidentally tried probiotic called ultra flora IB by meta genius. Something about the added fiber stops the diarrhea, for me anyway. Too much fiber too quickly can cause stomach / abdominal pain. I have run an A1C between 5-8 for several years and I have taken metformin on and off over the years. Talk with your doctor if these symptoms do not go away. I even stopped taking the second pill for awhile which did help, but then my sugar starting climbing again. I cope best if I'm working from home or am certain there will be a toilet nearby. Without the loperamide, it's much worse but I still feel I need to be close to a toilet for a while after I eat anything. Can now go into mall, walk or anywhere without looking for bathroom. I've taken Metformin for years and have battled diarrhea for years from it. Yes, I have the gastro problems that it seems is common everytime I go on it. Your doctor may need to reduce your dose to allow your body to adjust and then adjust dose up gradually. Then finally get diarrhea & bad abdominal pain also. So just because it stopped for you (you're lucky) doesn't mean it will for everyone else. Severe cramps without the loperamide; mild ones with it. It's not worth it to me to be this miserable AND have diarrhea onset almost without notice. My doctor is displeased I want to discontinue, but HEY!! My doctor switched me to the extended release which did seem to help a little but not completely. Your doctor could also consider switching to a slow-release medication which may reduce diarrhea because smaller amounts are absorbed over the day rather than hitting your system all at once.https:// had diarrhea for FIVE YEARS. I was also taking half tab of Glipizide twice a day. I am also Lactose intolerant & on 3 blood pressure medications. I had gall bladder removed in November and I think it actually got worse after that. (I ride a bus everywhere.) And, my A1C WAS 8.4 THIS TIME. I eat yogart which I'm sure helps, but I recently tried a high potency Probiotic which I take once a day.

    I have only been using this product for 2wks, so nothing really that I can report concerning the effectiveness. Fingers crossed I will see more results in time, I’m very happy so far and will be a long term client. I will report back on results, but customer service and shipping is A . People i'll tell you right now, I have literally done almost everything. I started to lose a whack of hair from my troublesome spots. I do hope in the coming wks/mths I will have some positive outcomes. But though the price is very expensive for our country, but I order it. The prices are very affordable compared to other competitors and the product is very legit. Thank you, I will be a long term client from the United Kingdom. So I said "f" this I'm going with what I know, but I didn't want to injest Finasteride again cuz I've had results from topicals that address DHT and use minoxidil. However, at this point the major plus is that it is pleasant to apply, no scalp attack or discomfort. Dr Klein clinic stopped selling 15% minoxidil world wide. I've also used another topical product by a different vendor that is used by bodybuilders. Its relatively safe but unregulated) Because the bodybuilder substance is unregulated and research has stopped, I decided to go with a finasteride topical with Minoxidil. 1- Prevent it from falling, and 2 - Stimulate health and regrowth sustainably. Used minox products long time ago and had MAJOR issues with scalp irritation..far this one is very comfortable to use. The quality of this product seems to be superior to most in that the purity of the minoxidil seems to be better in conjunction with the other products that they have added. I will continue with the 15% solution with Finasteride once a day for the next 6 months and then I will scale down to a 10% customized solution with finasteride. I found Dualgen as an alternative, so far works great. I have ordered 6 bottles on both times with great fast shipping. Recently I tried a heavily published "natural solution". Prior I had been using 15% formula which was similar, but they stopped shipping world wide. I have just started using Dualgen NO PG plus recently.

    I told my doctor I’d give it six months to correct itself and so far, after several tests, it hasn’t. I’m going to get back into the gym serious for the next couple of weeks, take my zinc, get plenty of rest, make sure I have some decent sex… How old were you when you started hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and how long have you been on? He said “ TRT Man I started testosterone replacement therapy at age 31 after being diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism. basically all the stuff you’re supposed to do to “naturally” increase your testosterone levels. Has anyone been on replacement level testosterone therapy for more than, say, 20 years? I would think the long-term risks are much worse than the typical bodybuilder doing cycles at low doses, or someone who starts HRT at 50 or 60 years of age. Researching hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with testosterone was difficult because all of the info was for women or bodybuilders. If I’m still under 400 (have been between 200-300 on a scale of 1100 with 350 being normal – but don’t quote me on those scales, they’re from memory, which is increasingly poor these days) then screw it… So I decided to create a site for average guys looking into TRT.
