I am 150 pound weight and 155 cm height. I have no diseases and not on any medication. I heard that some doctors advise to use Glucophage to reduce weight. Is it safe
I take metformin and I did lose some weight, but I also watch what I eat. There is a new study for metformin that I find interesting so I thought I would share it, I hope you don't mind - metformin, commonly prescribed for diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), has the potential to slow aging and fight cancer. The study, published in Aging Cell, found that metformin reduces the body’s production of inflammatory cytokines, which accelerate aging.
