Has anyone here been able to discontinue metformin and insulin (both) through diet and intermittent fasting? And, if so, did you experience any weight gain afer discontinuing metformin? I've been searching the internet and found some people experience a weight gain, even though they continue to eat the same, etc. — only difference being discontinuance of Metformin. I think that metformin helps with glycogenosis (sp?). Does glycogenosis ever ease up with diet? I've heard that Metformin used long-term can contribute to anxiety for some and, because I've been on it for probably 15 years (when I could afford it) that concerns me. I have been taking 10 mg citalopram for anxiety and even though I've tried, I cannot do without it. But I don't like the way it makes me feel physically. Thanks.
