This is why we discourage pharmaceuticals.

This medication may cause lactic acidosis (a build-up of lactic acid in the body, which can be fatal). Lactic acidosis can start slowly and get worse over time. Get emergency medical help if you have even mild symptoms of lactic acidosis, such as:
  • muscle pain or weakness;
  • numb or cold feeling in your arms and legs;
  • trouble breathing;
  • feeling dizzy, light-headed, tired, or very weak;
  • stomach pain, nausea with vomiting; or
  • slow or uneven heart rate.
Call your doctor at once if you have any other serious side effect such as:
  • feeling short of breath, even with mild exertion;
  • swelling or rapid weight gain; or
  • fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms.
Less serious Glucophage side effects may include:
  • headache or muscle pain;
  • weakness; or
  • mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gas, stomach pain.
This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

Glucophage is one of the better choices if you are going that conventional route. But if glucophage can control your diabetes you are probably not to far gone to cure it with correct supplementation, diet and detox. Your choice. One thing about glucophage, that given enough time most people do end up on insulin.

glucophage/metformin is the first line treatment for type 2 diabetes, especially to those people who are obese and overweight. currently it is the only known drug that is able to suppress the cardiovascular complications/problems of diabetic patients.
