Metformin And It’s Side Affects

Recently I have had many inquiries about Metformin and its side affects.Today I would like to talk to you about the things you need to consider if you are taking it or thinking about it.
 
Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why would someone recommend a medication that would potentially harm you?
 
Some diabetes experts report that when it comes to prescribing initial therapy for Type 2 diabetics, some doctors tend to follow a “treatment of laziness” — for example, prescribing medications if they perceive difficulties in the patient’s ability to change dietary habits or lifestyle. Oral pills should be used in Type 2 diabetes only when diet, supplements and exercise are not effective.
 
The bottom line is you need to take control of your health and make decisions that are best for you. 

Metformin is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels.
 
Metformin is for people with type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes.

For those of you who were asking if Metformin is really bad for you I will let you make the decision after you read the following possible side affects.

Side effects that you should report to your prescriber or health care professional as soon as possible:
 
Causes Vitamin B12 deficiency contributing to Neuropathy.

Serious Reactions:

* lactic acidosis – is when lactic acid builds ups in the blood stream faster than it can be removed. Lactic acid is produced when oxygen levels in the body… Get emergency medical help if you have any of these symptoms of lactic acidosis including:  weakness, increasing sleepiness, slow heart rate, cold feeling, muscle pain, shortness of breath, stomach pain, feeling light-headed, and fainting

* anemia – is a condition where there is a lower than normal number of red blood cells in the blood, usually measured by a decrease in the amount of hemoglobin….

Common Reactions that usually do not require medical attention (report to your prescriber or health care professional if they continue or are bothersome):

– decreased appetite
– gas
– heartburn
– metallic taste in the mouth
– mild stomachache
– nausea/vomiting
– weight loss
– rash
– diarrhea
– flatulence
– asthenia
– indigestion
– abdominal discomfort
    
In combination with other diabetic medications, (like acarbose, glyburide, glipizide, miglitol, or insulin), metformin may cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
 
Contact your health care professional if you experience symptoms of low blood sugar, which may include:  -anxiety or nervousness, confusion, difficulty concentrating, hunger, pale skin, nausea, fatigue, sweating, headache, palpitations, numbness of the mouth, tingling in the fingers, tremors, muscle weakness, blurred vision, cold sensations, uncontrolled yawning, irritability, rapid heartbeat, shallow breathing, and loss of consciousness.

Wow! this is quite the list of side affects from Metformin.
 
THE GREAT NEWS is that you can avoid all of these nasty side affects by taking ACTION regarding your health by taking control of your health today. For more information, check out our free Diabetes Report.

Take Action Today To maintain Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

I hope you are having a great week so far.
 
Today I want to ask you and important question.
 
Are you afraid of developing diabetic complications? Many people I hear from every day certainly are, and with good reason. Each one of them can tell you stories about a loved one or acquaintance who suffered through amputation, became blind, or died at a young age. They fear the same will happen to them.
 

Did you know that  over 25 million Americans have blood sugar imbalances that put them at risk for:

Blindness – Heart Problems – Strokes –  Kidney failure – Amputations

Take Action Now To maintain Healthy Blood Sugar Levels.

              

 
Fortunately, diabetes care has changed dramatically in the past few years. We know more about diabetes than ever before, and can say with confidence that diabetes complications can be avoided.
 
One of the biggest factors in avoiding diabetes complications is not to ignore diabetes in the early stages. There are 5 million people in the United States who have diabetes and don’t even know it.
 
It is very easy to ignore it because your body is feeling fine and your body seems to be working fine.
 
No Symptoms. No problem. Right?
 
ABSOLUTELY WRONG  Not Even Close!
 
While you’re doing nothing, the excess glucose in your blood is eroding the very fabric of your body, threatening major organs, including your heart, nerves, eyes and kidneys. You may not feel the effects right now, but keep your blood sugar high and you eventually will.
 
By keeping your blood sugar close to normal, you have a good chance of avoiding these awful complications.
 
It is never too late, the minute you start managing your blood sugar, is the minute you drastically reduce a life of health problems.

Coffee and Diabetes Type 2

Well everybody, It’s been a very busy few days. And that means one thing – Lots of coffee!

There are benefits to that, though. An Australian study that showed a 7 percent reduction in diabetes type 2 risk for every daily cup of coffee.

So each morning, as I fill up the first of several daily cups, I think to myself, “Well, I guess I’m getting plenty of diabetes protection today.” (And if I were a man, there’d be one more: a lower risk of prostate cancer.)

Until now, scientists haven’t known why coffee has the effect it does on diabetes type 2 risk. A new report in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural & Food Chemistry gets to the bottom of the mystery.

The report explains that people who drink four or more cups of coffee per day have a 50 percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who don’t partake. And like I said, every additional cup tacks on another approximately 7 percent decrease in risk.

              

Coffee’s power against type 2 diabetes could lie in its effect on a substance called human islet amyloid polypeptide (hIAPP). The “misfolding” of this substance is linked to the development of diabetes, which got some scientists thinking: Does coffee do anything to block hIAPP? Yep!

In fact, there are two categories of compounds in coffee that freeze hIAPP in its misfolding tracks. Thus, the benefit enjoyed by regular drinkers of coffee.

So now I don’t feel so bad that I’m on my 3rd cup and it’s not even noon!
