Why does glucophage make you lose weight
I wasn't doing much exercise though I should haveand it seemed like each day a pound had fallen off. Last week, we realize my periods and hormones were off again, this time back on and trying it as suggested, full glass of water with food. I have been taking metformin mg twice a day for 8 years Naturally I've cut out all sugar, bread, potatoes - anything with starch.
Do not weigh every day. I think that was also a part of it. I got diagnosed this past spring, and back then my knees, elbows, inner thighs, and ankles were dark black and had been for as long as I could remember. Page 1 2 Next. Not a Medscape Member?

Weight has never come off this easy. Available for Android and iOS devices. I just went back on metformin last week and am hoping to have the same results I had years ago.
I had trouble losing prior to metformin unless I did something extreme, like the induction phase of adkins, then I'd gain everything I lost while in diet mode most I could go was about 3 weeks with in months.
I am just in the beginning of all of this and seeing if anyone out there is experiencing the same thing and what to expect later.
Some doctors are now prescribing this diabetes drug for weight loss. But is it safe?
Obviously her doc felt it was serious to prescribe. And how much mg a day? My arm hair is normal now. However, I'm never hungry and not tempted by bread, etc. Is this too Much?
