I am 55years old and just started taking this medicine and the doctor said i need to lose some weight .I am a type 2 diabetes
Metformin is a medicine often prescribed for patients with Type 2 diabetes. You will have to watch your diet carefully and exercise regularly to lose weight.
Some patients experience weight loss while taking metformin - but not all. You will need to work at it - good luck.
Sorry I going to have to be blunt, if your taking metformin for weight control get off it! Get a trainer, dietician and put together an all unprocessed food diet and juicing, Quit supporting the big pharm $$$$$$ which are only making you sick, take control over your OWN health!
