... understand the reasoning of avoiding such activities but I just don't see the concept of drinking and the liver not wanting to work with metformin can some one explain?
(Spews in keyboard) Brudda, I am not a recovering alcoholic, I am a practicing alcoholic. I have rationed myself, very strictly ! to 4 oz/day, I have inoperable lower back problems and other stuff that causes constant pain. The 2 hours it takes me to consume my ounces numbs that chronic pain for little while. My Dr. allows this, grudgingly, since my fast BG wobbles from 75 to 105, depends on a midnight protein snack. My liver enzymes are within limits. If I exceed my daily ration, I promptly fall asleep, no more pain relief. I DO NOT recommend my personal alcohol intake regimen... too much temptation to overlap alcohol with pain meds... Tramadol in my case. My heart is in great shape at 64, don't want it to suddenly stop! Just me, this is NOT advice! Diabetes is a gun at my head and it is MY finger on the trigger.
