What is the side effects of metformin?
Thank you, Mr Adidas, for your question. As for side effects of metformin, the information is available on the Internet. Kindly check. I understand that the particular patient is in prediabetes stage, and that a physician has prescribed metformin. I would advise that you do ask that patient to get a second opinion. I found the following information from Wikipedia, which is copied below:
Metformin treatment of people at a prediabetes stage of risk for type 2 diabetes may decrease their chances of developing the disease, although intensive physical exercise and dieting work significantly better for this purpose. In a large U.S. study known as the Diabetes Prevention Program, participants were divided into groups and given either placebo, metformin, or lifestyle intervention, and followed for an average of three years. The intensive program of lifestyle modifications included a 16-lesson training on dieting and exercise followed by monthly individualized sessions with the goals to decrease the body weight by 7% and engage in a physical activity for at least 150 minutes per week. The incidence of diabetes was 58% lower in the lifestyle group and 31% lower in individuals given metformin. Among younger people with a higher body mass index, lifestyle modification was no more effective than metformin, and for older individuals with a lower body mass index, metformin was no better than placebo in preventing diabetes. After ten years, the incidence of diabetes was 34% lower in the group of participants given diet and exercise and 18% lower in those given metformin. It is unclear whether metformin slowed down the progression of prediabetes to diabetes (true preventive effect), or the decrease of diabetes in the treated population was simply due to its glucose-lowering action (treatment effect). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metformin

It may not be advisable to attempt reducing body weight so fast. Can you tell me your height, health profile, age, food habits and daily routine, please?

The Website is awesome! I feel very fortunate to browse your website. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I really appreciate how much time and energy you would have spent to get all details.
Habits die hard. This is just the content that we need to teach our children (and adults too) right from the start so they don’t find it hard like the adults do, to unlearn some things. This website is not for reactive action but proactive action.
When browsing through childbirth, I had to let know that I had a C-section for my first girl and 4 years later had a normal delivery for my second girl. I was 30 kgs over normal weight, the baby was 4 kgs (heavy), the labour pain after water break went on for 20 hours, and Gods grace was hanging too heavily around me that she came out just fine.
I was stubborn that I had to go through a normal delivery, to go through one of God’s first few blessings (in anger) to women, and experience every stage of child birth. I thank God for helping me through.
We all need this. This has got to go out to everyone. I feel that the idea behind this website needs to be more pronounced though.
