The topic...Metformin! Click on the link for time zone and RSVP.
From talking with friends & family who are taking/have taken it, I've heard more reports of side effects from women than from men. I definitely have side effects, one of which is the "gurgly" feeling, which I am pretty sure is my gallbladder contracting. But after taking the Metformin for the past 3 months, I haven't seen a SINGLE post-prandial spike, and my A1C dropped to 5.8. So, essentially, with careful diet & exercise plus the Metformin, the result for me is numbers that look equivalent to non-diabetics. Even when I've occasionally overeaten, my PPG might approach 120. So, yeah, for me it is totally worth some occasional intestinal distress & such.
I have been on Metformin for over a year now. I am not had any side effects from the medicine at all, on my last Docror's visit, he was impressed by my blood sugar readings.

Watch your CARB intake. Low Carb (30/grams/day) works in many cases as well as meds w/o the side effects. Dr Bernstein's approach is working for me.
