It is out of John Hopkins. It makes since because my BG will be 78 then 30 min later 96 and I haven't eaten anything. So its working to make my system work normally.

It acts like the normal carrier that goes between the liver and pancreas. I also read there is a link between the drug and the decrease in cancer.

This is not really new information…the study is rather old…that being said I have done very well on Metformin..even before going low carb..it brought my fasting numbers down from almost 400 to the low 200's rather quickly…I cut out more carbs and hit the 140-160 mark…went keto and went down to 115-120…slow and steady wins the race…my fasting levels have been under 100 for the last few days…God bless Metformin and Dr. Atkins..

And how much of time Metoformin tablets 500 mg (Glycomate Gliciphase Glucophase ) may work how long period

I care little for atkins as a recent study between a low fat diet and the atkins found atkins looses weight faster but the weight does not stay off. I like the south beach for very low carbs as it incorporates good carbs which is needed imho. My fasting BG is 160 before the drug and now ave 100's. I just started a 90 day fitness plan plus cutting out bad carbs. I have treated to many people with keto acidosis to want to induce it on myself.

There is a world of difference between the keto acidosis you are talking about and nutritional ketosis…and any diet that one ones does not stick to will cause weight gain…I need to be low carb to lose weight…traditional low fat diets make me gain…even eating "healthy" whole grains..

wildtigger2 2015-02-03 21:27:46 -0600 Report

Unfortunately not as much difference as some think. I studied both diets and still believe the south beach diet is the better of the two. Id would have had more faith in the atkins if he would have let his body be proof it would by letting us look at his arteries.

Why would you need HIS body as proof…when they're millions of other bodies to use as proof…even the naysayers from decades ago have for the most part climbed aboard the atkins bandwagon…with even the unholy ADA saying it is an effective diet when for managing diabetes…it lowers bad cholesterol..raises good cholesterol..burns fat, which is extremely important because of the link between abdominal fat and impaired insulin sensitivity…Any given person can lose weight on several different diets…but I prefer the diet that is going to lower my dependence on meds the most…drastically improve my cholesterol (and it has)..and where the weight loss comes overwhelmingly from fat..and keeps muscle mass from being lost…just one chicks opinion..

I get that Tigger … new to me as well … I guess my point
(if I had one) was … after almost 6 years has anything changed because of this study? about 20 minutes searching around the 'net and I don't see that this study has changed anything (yet)

Unfortunately doctors are slow on reading new things and research takes time. I work with doctors everyday and have been in the lab on a few projects in my college days. Doesn't help us who want help now.

So I will be very interested to see how they test it in humans. I have been on metformin since diagnosis and it has had to be increased. It works for a while and then it stops, like my body adjusts to it. I have found the extended release helps me better.

wildtigger2 2015-02-03 05:36:40 -0600 Report

They found a genetic marker in humans that will tell them if it works

GabbyPA 2015-02-03 05:49:04 -0600 Report

Yes, and they said that the CBP can also show up in the blood work, so that will be neat to see how it progresses and how they change the dosing of metformin to fit the needs of each patient.
