Metformin alone will not make you lose weight, add exercise in with cutting out carbs, and the weight will come off
Actually, yes, it will. JAMA -- Abstract: Lifestyle Intervention and Metformin for Treatment of Antipsychotic-Induced Weight Gain: A Randomized Controlled Trial, January 9/16, 2008, Wu et al. 299 (2): 185 Doctors have even prescribed it for that purpose, just as Benadryl is often used as a sleeping aid in the elderly. (Prescribing a drug for the main side effect)Metformin alone will not make you lose weight, add exercise in with cutting out carbs, and the weight will come off
Aww. I got thrush from being on steroids in the hospital followed by an antibiotic. That happened just 2 weeks ago. I certainly isn't fun. I hope you get well soon. I'm worried about ya.Woke up with a sore throat, it might be thrush from the Advair or the steroids that I was just on, will call my Doctor in the morning. I didn't sleep very well, I tossed and turned all night long and my nasal cannula kept slipping around despite it being very tight under my chin, I really want to get rid of the oxygen, hopefully when I get my lung CT, that will explain some things. Took a nap from noon to 2PM and then got up and did some studying. Boy, the weekend sure did go by fast.
How did you get rid of the thrush?Aww. I got thrush from being on steroids in the hospital followed by an antibiotic. That happened just 2 weeks ago. I certainly isn't fun. I hope you get well soon. I'm worried about ya.
During some of my past weight loss periods when I was eating a low calorie diet, I allowed myself to have a regular meal of my choice once a week and I found myself having problems with some of the foods. Your body is trying to let you know that it is not used to eating certain foods. You are right about the forum, you can talk like you want and most won't think you are crazy!Ugh. my day is going blah. i really am trying to eat more food. it also really is (as weird as this may sound coming from a formally fat man) a difficult task.
today for the first time in a very very long time, i am voluntarily eating man made carbs (im having a low-carb wrap with mayo, ham cheese and lettuce) in an attempt to stop losing weight.
half way through the wrap, ive had to stop do to bloated feeling.
thank you once again for this forum, its the only place i can talk about things like this without people thinking im totally crazy
Met doesnt HAVE to effect EVERYONE ya know!This weekend has been nice. My beloved Ohio State Buckeyes football team had another win yesterday and they are 3-0-0. Conference games begin soon and the Big Ten will begin the battles on the field.
Blood glucose has been very good all weekend and I have started taking my Metformin ER. No real problems yet. I can't wait until I can work my way up to a therapeutic dose to see if it is going to help with my insulin resistance. One day at a time though.
The leaves are just starting to fall off the trees and many leaves are changing colors. In no time, fall will be upon us and the holiday season will be here.
I hope everyone had a good weekend!
