Event Description

6-7pm PT

9-10pm ET

This is not a webinar or live interview.  This is a discussion among members of TuDiabetes, in the TuDiabetes chatroom.  Log into the chat room at the designated time to discuss Metformin

Metformin is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels.  It is very commonly prescribed for people with type 2 diabetes, although some people believe it is also useful for people with type 1.

Do you take Metformin?  If so, does it work well for you?  Have you experienced side effects?  Are you interested in taking it?  Do you have questions or concerns about it?

Read all about Metformin here.

Bring your comments and questions to share with fellow members.  Together we are a font of knowledge :)

Any opinion? Metforim vs Byetta?
Comment by Martin J Spielman on June 10, 2014 at 6:24pm
I use 1500 Metforim per day. Does Metforim have many side effects?

The VA will not refill my Metformin until they get a urine sample. A1C was 9 last time. I am about out and was taking 1,000 mg twice a day. Wonder what happens now while I have none left?
