Default Need advice on reducing medication


Hi Guys,
I am a diabetic and I was taking crazy doses of metformin to control my blood sugar and weight. I switched to HempPaste a month ago and my blood sugar is normalizing.I lost 10 pounds this month! I want to come off the metformin completely since I donít see any benefit to it, if the HempPaste can help me manage it. Also the side effects of the meformin are awful. Can anyone recommend how to decrease my dosage so I donít just go off of it cold turkey?

You need to discuss this with the doc who prescribed the metformin. Or one who knows how to use it. Definitely don't go cold turkey. Or try to wean yourself off.

Reversing Diabetes so you are able to reduce ALL diabetes drugs is possible and many people have done it without problems.

The science supporting the use of Low carbohydrate diets for those with Type 2 diabetesis now very supportive and there is more research showing it helps address the underlying metabolic problems.

I expect you know that metformin use tends to deplete Vitamin B12 so people who are or have been using metformin should also be taking a B12 supplement preferably one with both methylcobalamin (MeCbl) and adenosylcobalamin (AdCbl)
