    Just told I was insulin resistant...very nominal but with cardio and vascular issues doc wants me to start metformin at 500 mg x 2 daily then move up to 800 mg.

    I have a question that I'm hoping you folks might be able to help with. I don't have diabetes, but my Dad just got diagnosed last week with type 2.
