Anyone on metformin and not diabetic? I have read that it is prescribed sometimes for insulin resistance and am looking for substantiating evidence that it can help. I have to try and convince my p.c.p. to let me try it to see if it can help me with weight loss. I am most certainly insulin resistant!!
I am not an advocate of 'weight loss drugs' and I don't think metformin falls into that category. I am thinking it is a pretty well studied and safe drug that may address the underlying issue of insulin resistance.....any opinions would be very welcome.
