Описание: How To Take Metformin Without Side Effects | When Is The Best Time To Take Metformin | How To Build Up Metformin | Metformin 500mg Side Effects Constipation Diarrhea Hey guys! This weeks video is about metformin and the importance of slowly building up your dose to the prescribed dose to help reduce it's side effects when you're first started on it. Metformin is a medicine used to treat type 2 diabetes and sometimes polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Type 2 diabetes is an illness where the body doesn't make enough insulin, or the insulin that it makes doesn't work properly. This can cause high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia). PCOS is a condition that affects how the ovaries work. KEY FACTS: • Metformin works by reducing the amount of sugar your liver releases into your blood. It also makes your body respond better to insulin. Insulin is the hormone that controls the level of sugar in your blood. • It's best to take metformin with a meal to reduce the side effects. • The most common side effects are feeling sick, vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach ache and going off your food. • Metformin does not cause weight gain (unlike some other diabetes medicines). • Metformin may also be called by the brand names Bolamyn, Diagemet, Glucient, Glucophage, and Metabet. HOW AND WHEN TO TAKE: It's best to take metformin tablets with a meal to reduce the side effects. Swallow your metformin tablets whole with a glass of water. Do not chew them. Metformin tablets come in different strengths. Your doctor will tell you how many tablets to take a day. DIFFERENT TYPES OF METFORMIN: Metformin comes as 2 different types of tablet - standard-release tablets and slow-release tablets. Standard-release tablets release metformin into your body quickly. You may need to take them several times a day depending on your dose. Slow-release tablets dissolve slowly so you don't have to take them as often. Your doctor or pharmacist will explain what type of metformin tablets you are on and how to take them. Metformin is also available as a liquid for children and people who find it difficult to swallow tablets. Liquid metformin is called by the brand name Riomet. WILL MY DOSE GO UP OR DOWN: Your doctor will check your blood sugar levels regularly and may change your dose of metformin if necessary. When you first start taking metformin standard-release tablets you will be advised to increase the dose slowly. This reduces the chances of getting side effects. (See video for explanation on how to build up dose slowly) If you find you can't tolerate the side effects of standard-release metformin, your doctor may suggest switching to slow-release tablets. HOW TO COPE WITH SIDE EFFECTS: • Feeling sick - take metformin with food to reduce the chances of feeling sick - it may also help to slowly increase your dose over several weeks. • Diarrhoea or vomiting - have small but frequent sips of water. It may also help to take oral rehydration solutions which you can buy from a pharmacy or supermarket to prevent dehydration. Don't take any other medicines to treat diarrhoea or vomiting without speaking to a pharmacist or doctor. • Metallic taste in the mouth - if you find that metformin is giving you a metallic taste in the mouth, try chewing sugar-free gum. If you find you are suffering from side effects talk to your doctor about switching to a slow-release tablet.

i think, your given information was not right,, did you know what are side effects of metformin, what will happen on continuing metformin tablets,, one day your kidney will stop workinh, it directly harm to kidney and lever, i reserach on tablets of diabetes, its a trap, once you started, you cant stop it, bcoz natruall insulin made by pancreas stop making insullin naturally, and and at that time you cant stop your dosage, everyone who is reading my comments, best option for diabetes is exercise dailly, morning walk upto 2 km gradually increase it ,, start taking guava leaf juice daily, stop taking complex carbohydrates and start simple carbohydrate, all cereals like wheat and many other have complex carb, stop taking sugar

You're best off by going ketogenic; follow Dr Eric Berg on YouTube, then ASAP get into intermittent fasting, reducing your meals from 3 to 1 a day. You can do it and it will not harm you. I was 285 lbs after eating my way from 185 lbs, due to inadequate nutritional counseling after surgery. After going ketogenic for 18 months I lost 65 lbs, then I plateaued and could not lose the next 35 lbs. Then I discovered Dr Ken Berry, MD, on YouTube: he shared his real life experiences without glossing anything, so I understand his complete honesty and intent to truly help people without charging them! Following his advice, I next went carnivore; after 5 weeks I broke m plateau and began to lose weight again, 5 lbs in one week, so now I've got 30 more to go! I'll be 76 on Feb 17th 2019, and after a lifetime of chronic 24/7 pain since age 20, I am now joint pain free! Not only that, but my eroded L knee which was shown by x-ray and booked for a knee replacement, has lost 95% of its pain and rarely gives out without warning, as it formerly did. I cannot praise the virtues of the carnivore diet enough, though I understand on first glance it appears counterintuitive and runs against the current MSM propaganda on diet and eating habits. And it's well that it does, as the advice of the last 50 years from federal governments has put us on an insane increase in simple carbos and massive sugar consumption. Dr Ken Berry MD, Dr Jason Fung MD, and Dr Eric Berg DC are your best guides.

Metform will destroy you’re stomach ! Do not take it if you have a function, meeting or event to go too. Make sure there is always a bathroom in you’re general area.
bo ang (3 months ago)
There is no need to take Metformin even when you are a type 2 diabetic. Just avoid bread, pasta, potatoes, white or brown rice, corn, ice cream, soft drinks, fruits, fruit juices, chips and sweets. Eat eggs, beef, fish, chicken, pork, butter, bacon, cheese and lots of vegetable salad instead. Take omega 3 capsules. Don't eat anything from 5pm until 7am. Verify my advice using a glucose device one hour after meal. Metformin is not a cure for insulin resistance. It is just a waste of money.

For anyone who is having diarrhea issues: Try taking an iron supplement (with food) 1 hr before your metformin. Since iron is notorious for causing constipation it may slow down some of the diarrhea.

I am taking metformin. The doctor prescribed 2 times daily but i take it once every day along with Januvia. I've been off balance since September 2017.. Could it be from the metformin? I've had all kinds of tests but the results are all negative. A response from you would be appreciated

I was diagnosed recently. My doctor told me to do it like this: First week - 500mg once a day at breakfast = 500mg Total Second week - 500mg twice a day at breakfast then at dinner = 1000mg Total Third week - 1000mg once at breakfast then 500mg at dinner = 1500mg Total Fourth week - 1000mg twice a day at breakfast and at dinner = 2000 mg Total This way allows your body to get used to the meds allowing 1 week for each adjustment period. Also make sure to always take it with a meal which will reduce the side affects which can suck. Stomach pains and nausea and for some people diarrhea which luckily I didn’t get well not yet at least.

This is a very good drug "Metformin" to take if you eat a low carb diet and no white flour , no grains , no potaoes , no starch , no beans ,no fruit , and eat a healthy moderate protein diet , you can lose a lot of weight .if you keep your blood sugar below 90 and you do fasting , you will never get heart disease or cancer . ----"What foods should I avoid if I have cancer?" This is the single most frequently asked question from people with cancer. The answer, of course, is complicated, but controlling your cancer through "diet "comes down to two principles: controlling your body's oxidation levels to prevent cancer and limiting your "sugar intake" to prevent metastasizing of cancers. There are three causes of diabetes that trigger cancer growth when your blood sugar is uncontrolled: 1. Fruit juices, sweet drinks, and refined carbs. A soft drink contains 10% sugar. So in a 1-liter bottle, you have just consumed 100 grams of sugar. If you do this three times a day and do that for 4 days, you have actually consumed about 1.2 kilograms of sugar. That is more than 2 pounds of sugar. It is beyond what the body can metabolize. We are practically growing cancer farms ! . 2. Avoid all Oily foods, especially " polyunsaturated " fatty acids. Avoid polyunsaturated foods, and fats Foods and oils with higher amounts of polyunsaturated fats include : Walnuts. Sunflower seeds. Flax seeds or flax oil. Fish, such as salmon, mackerel, herring, albacore tuna, and trout. Corn oil. Soybean oil. Safflower oil. Canola Oil Peanut Oil Perhaps the only known oils that do not damage the" liver " are coconut oil and lard. They are both saturated fats and in chemistry are not subjected to free radical attacks. Put a vegetable oil in the sun, side to side with coconut oil, and in one month the coconut oil remains the same but the vegetable oil will turn to glue. Imagine what happens if this occurs in the body as fats and oil tend to accumulate and stay in your body for a long time. Once the liver is damaged, it can't handle the body's sugars as well. 3. Avoid Foods That Are High in Lectins such as Red Kidney Beans, Soybeans , Peanuts, Potatoes, The highest concentrations of lectins are found in foods like legumes, grains and nightshade vegetables Avoid all Wheat products; Wheat contains a protein that destroys your pancreas, and studies show that this alone can initiate type 1 diabetes. Now in a cancer patient, if the pancreas doesn't work the blood sugar gets high, but as the pancreas gets destroyed, it can't produce pancreatic enzymes. Without enough enzymes in your system, the body cannot digest the food and we end up having cancer cachexia. "" What Not to Eat "" ; As for a short list of what not to eat, here is an excerpt from one of my private emails: NO WHEAT PRODUCTS , NO CORN PRODUCTS . NO fruit or fruit juices , NO Milk . NO COFFEE , NO sweet drinks or sodas NO sugar or artificial sugars. NO corn syrup or fructose. No Dairy NO carbonated water. Plain UN -chlorinated water is always . NO vegetable oils ...except coconut oil used in cooking. NO fried foods. NO calcium. NO large meals consisting largely of meats. On the positive side, do drink plenty of water Do not eat before sleep and no large meals at dinner. Dinnertime is best before 5 p.m. No meals after this. Obviously, no snacks and bakery products. Supplements that reduce blood sugar are helpful, as in glucophage (metformin) twice a day, B3 250 mg three times a day, and vitamin B-1 , 100 mg three times a day . Organic White tea is also important in flushing out excess sugar, while lysine, threonine, , Vitamin C, proline, tannic acid and perhaps organic green tea can help . It is MOST important, though, to get blood sugar below or equal to 90 mg/dL. You have a 97% better survival rate from cancer if you do. --- Controlling Your Blood Sugar When You Have Cancer --- My method for checking blood sugar is to do so 1 HOUR AFTER eating food. Most medical practitioners today measure blood sugar based on 12-hour fasting blood sugar, which is the wrong way to measure with cancer. The reason why they are wrong is cancer becomes metastatic after a blood sugar spike ONE HOUR AFTER A MEAL. The cancer becomes metastatic in the second hour. Obviously you have to find a cure for diabetes to cure cancer, but in more reasonable terms, if you can CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR not to exceed 110 the cancer simply can't go into metastasis. I have found three substances that get blood sugar down, namely: N acetyl Cystiene Beta carotene (mostly found in carrots) Bitter cucumber. The Nacetyl cysteine has a long-term effect (which takes about a week) to get blood sugar down, but the quickest is freshly squeezed carrot juice alone or with bitter cucumber. That gets blood sugar down fairly quickly, always less than 110. Research circles surmise that diabetes is due to a deficiency in beta-carotene and cryptoxanthin (the yellow pigments in carrot, pumpkins and orange rinds). Beta-carotene is a provitamin of Vitamin A. From my own observation I have found provitamins, or percursors of vitamins, to be far more effective than the vitamins themselves in a few cases, such as panthenol, which is a vitamin B5 of pantothenic acid or beta-carotene for example. These get blood sugar down very quickly and also have a stabilizing effect on blood pressure (in some cases there is no need to take blood pressure medicine if carrot juice is consumed). Most people with cancer are diabetic. However, most do not know they have diabetes or are border line , even if they did measure their blood sugar. Now, cancerous tumors require "sugar" and "glucose" for them to persist, but they REQUIRE FRUCTOSE TO METASTASIZE. The best way to stop the metastasis has got to be lysine , BUT WITHOUT THE CALCIUM or any dairy products . But the trigger for metastasis cancer is fructose and sugar levels. The facts on this issue of cancer survival are based on a Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) report, that people who have more than 90 mg/dL of blood sugar have a 97% increased chance of dying. And those with blood sugar below or equal to 90 mg/dL have a 97% greater chance of survival. It's a key fact that people keep overlooking. A cancer can reach general metastasis within 2 hours after consuming most fructose, especially in fruit juices of all kinds. Cancer here in Thailand exploded in the past 5 years here, right after national sales of fruit juices skyrocketed. So it's no coincidence that fruit juices, even without added sugar (called sucrose), do contain large amounts of sugars, such as the fructose found in fruits to begin with. People tell me how healthy fruits are, and of course they are healthy, for healthy people. What we fail to realize is that research studies assume people with normal blood sugar find them beneficial, and also that in laboratory rats, we prepare fruit extracts, WITHOUT the sugar fructose. Fructose is more dangerous then sucrose, but sucrose is a double sugar that has fructose and glucose built in. The body's insulin merely controls your blood glucose, but has no control of fructose directly allowing fructose, as a Trojan horse to damage the system . Regardless of the type of sugar consumed, too much sugar can cause problems. It leads to fermentation in the body that feeds and promotes yeast growth and negative bacteria. Overeating sugary foods causes constipation and gas, and this gas can back up into the bloodstream. This is where most diseases originate–from candida to cancer and everything in between. If you want to be healthy, you must learn to cut back on sugary , refine-carbs and starchy foods. The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss Paperback – Mar 4 2016 by Dr. Jason Fung (Author) --- ---https://www.amazon.com/.../177164.../ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0... Cancer---- In 2013 Tim was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Synovial Sarcoma. https://www.toughliketim.com/story.html Identifying stressful areas in your life is the first step toward reclaiming your health. Lack of enjoyment of life, money issues, worry, and fear build stress. But the most common stress on the body is eating and abusing harmful foods. Abusing foods is the most common stress to the body. People consume foods that were never meant to be in our body, they eat foods in amounts that the body can’t manage, and they eat at times they shouldn’t be eating. Before viewing my diet suggestions, please understand that health begins with what you eliminate from your diet, not with what you add. The first step in recovery and healing is to remove the problem foods from your diet. Then you can replace them with the healthy food you should have been eating from the beginning. ++-- The Causes At a fundamental level, obesity occurs when people regularly eat and drink more calories than they use. Besides a person's eating behavior, a number of factors can contribute to obesity, including a lack of physical activity, a lack of sleep, (sleep apnea) genetics and the use of certain medications that can cause weight gain or water retention, such as corticosteroids, antidepressants or some seizure medications. Modern culture and conveniences also, in part, contribute to obesity. According to the Mayo Clinic, environmental factors that promote obesity include: Oversized food portions, busy work schedules with little time for an active lifestyle, limited access to healthy foods at supermarkets, easy access to fast food and lack of safe places for physical activity.

Metformin made me allopecia, only 4 months later, my hair started to fall off, specially around the face. I took one year to recover my hair after lots of vitamines. So, for me, Metformin never more. I took it to try to loose weight, which I didn’t.

My side effects were so severe, I was up in the middle of the night feeling like death in my bathroom. My doctor put me in 1000 mg a day IMMEDIATELY after diagnosing me. My results have been terrible because I completely stopped taking the medication, I’m going to start taking only 500 mg a day now. Spilt the tab in two and take one with breakfast and the other with dinner! Thank so much for this video!!!

I was prescribed 1000mg straight away too, and was having a really upset stomach. So I just went to having 500mg at night and now I’ve increased it to having half the pill in the morning of 250mg then the 500mg at night and can just handle that. I’m glad people are finding what works for them

Andy Reeves , you should see about getting a OD instead of an MD doctor. They care more..

I've been on this for months now and I found this video to be very insightful. I kinda knew what it did before by an explanation from the doctor. But the visualizations in the video explained it better.

What if my heavy meal is my brunch around 10/11am? My doc wants 3x a day. But wants me to start for the 1st 3months 2 a day.
AbrahamThePharmacist (10 months ago)
Thanks for commenting, if brunch is your biggest meal of the day then start with taking it then to reduce side effects. Might be worth mentioning my guide to your doctor or pharmacist so they can advise better too.

Great video but what about talking to your nurse? often its nurses in primary care starting metformin
AbrahamThePharmacist (11 months ago)
Thank you for commenting I actually thought the same thing whilst I was editing, I didn't realise how much I said doctor until editing, then it was too late. So yes 100% agree with you and people should know that they can also speak to their diabetic nurse, advance nurse practitioner, nurse too.
