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 don’t 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 don’t just go off of it cold turkey?

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)
