Very happy to have you back, Jennifer! :hug:
Yes I will keep using it. I noticed that when I ran out of it once, I just never replaced it...and didnt take it for about 3 weeks. I really noticed the difference. I was having more unexplained highs and lows...I couldnt figure out what the problem was and then remembered the milk thistle. I went straight to the store and bought some. Within about a week a started going back to my 'normal' again. Coincidence? maybe....but I wont stop taking againI am new--have had type 1 for about a year---heavy drinking and pancreatitis caused 1/3 of pancreas to die. I take 35 units of Lantus plus anoter 4 units of Novalog. I also take 1000mg Milk thistle twice a day---without the milk thistle my blood sugar goes whacky. Interesting to see that you use milok thistle too.
Metformin is the generic name of Glucophage, one of the oral drugs used to combat insulin resistance without hammering the pancreas to make more insulin. An oldie but a goodie - it's been around for many years & has a good track record.What is metformin?
