I have a friend who is 29 years old. She is pre-diabetic, due to PCOS. She has been on metformin for ten years. Any advice, thoughts, experiences with being on this long? This is the first time she recently had a blood test with close if not normal levels.

That is a question only her doctor can answer. I have friends who have been on it that long. Why they have been on it that long, I don't know. I also know people who have been prediabetic but were not given metformin.

Thank you just joyce, her biggest struggle is PCOS. That's why she's on that long. Another member and I are inviting her to join herself. I think it would be a lot of help to her.
