Re: Metformin and pca
I have not seen anything implicating human growth hormone in prostate cancer directly, although it does seem that IGF-1 can play some role and that in turn can be increased by hGH. Somatostatin is a much more powerful way to block hGH. In the research study quoted above, metformin seems to work through entirely different pathways. Why would anyone who is not diabetic want to take metformin and induce hypoglycemia? There are several drugs and supplements that show some promise in preventing it and/or slowing it down (e.g., finasteride, statins, cox2 inhibitors, soy isoflavones, curcumin, EGCG, quercetin to name just a few).
