Been diagnosed with diabetes type 2 and they have me on metformin...

anyone know anything about the drug...?

tks in advance

It's "supposed" to make you live longer, but depletes B12, so you 'll need to supplement. It is possible for many people to reverse Type 2 with diet. Worth researching.

The so-called twin vicious cycles likely explain how the build-up of fat in the cells of muscles, liver, and pancreas cause T2D.

 

 

Back in '18, data from a trial in the UK (published in the Lancet medical journal) showed that T2D was reversed in a large percentage of patients through a diet and lifestyle intervention https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(17)33102-1/fulltext 

 

Since then, more clinical data have confirmed this. So you should speak to your GP about it.

  • 4 weeks later...

I was inadvertently diagnosed well over a decade ago and did not bother with their drugs or returning since then for inept advice

7 Doctors and no joy for me so took matters into my own hands.

Water only fasting ended the diabetes for me and a return of bad habits reintroduced diabetes.

 

While in the thrall of bad habits I made a note of what improved sugar regulation, fatigue, digestion, weight gain and loss.

What I found to be useful was Turmeric mixed in water with some black pepper, butter/oil improves absorption of turmeric.

Cinnamon mixed with water - (learn about the 2 types)

Milk thistle helps both liver and pancreas

Dandelion root which is similar in action to milk thistle.

Gymnema sylvestre I found to be the most helpful and definitely helped with pancreatitis and pain reduction and improvements to digestion.

liquorice root is also great for glands.

 

Pancreas is also responsible for supplying the kidneys with bicarbonate for blood homeostasis so an alkaline diet helps as does bicarbonate taken regularly if your diet is lacking.

 

Modern medicine tends to view aspects of health in isolation which as flawed.

Magnesium deficiency is also a major factor with many conditions.

 

However, I don't know about metformin & cant believe it will resolve your troubles in the long term.
