Metformin for weight loss
Has anyone taken Metformin for weight loss who wasn't diabetic or had PCOS? I need to lose 30 to 40 lbs and don't know what to do anymore.

Re: Metformin for weight loss
Hey. Metformin induced weight loss is proven to work only on diabetics, and that too occasionally.

Just you find out your BMI, your glucose levels before breakfast and 2 hrs after lunch.
If you're obese or have persistent hyperglycemia (or insulin resistance), Metformin MIGHT work for you.

Try out Acarbose and fiber instead, if you eat a high carb diet.
