    Metformin for High blood pressure; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    I used to take beta-blockers combined with ACE inhibitors. Thereafter only ACE inhibitors (Rampril). Blood pressure was too high. Now I have received Atacand 16mg, from which the blood pressure has dropped. However, at the right ring finger I got at that time when taking the beta-blocker (Metoprolol100mg) psoriasis, which is no longer curable. After stopping the Medikamtes that was better with the psoriasis. Now she has become worse again. I suspect either a side effect of the drug Atacand or in conjunction with glucobon biomo. Who made similar experiences here?

    Metformin for Fertility disorders; Polycystic ovaries; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    Unfortunately, extreme diarrhea with metformin (initially 2×450 mg / day, then 1x 850 mg / day, then 2×850 mg / day). Unfortunately, it did not get better, but it will continue, as it can allegedly achieve very good results in PCO patients who at the same time have insulin resistance and want to fulfill their long-awaited desire to have children. My diabetologist advised me then I could take a drug for diarrheal diseases at the same time. You would not become dependent on it, and it would not hurt the body. So I could then benefit from the good effects of Metformax. Will that try now. Good luck to you all!

    Side effects: Diarrhea

    Metformin for Kinderwunsch-treatment; Polycystic ovaries; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    We were after about 3 years of having children in a KIWU practice. There, after he saw me, the doctor immediately took insulin resistance and wanted to test it immediately. This has also been confirmed. I then got prescribed metformin and lost 5 pounds immediately after about 30 days. Then the ovulation was triggered, because there has finally formed a beautiful. After very bad prognosis and SG of my husband OAT III we have thanks to the help of Metformin’s a 9 months old son. I would like to encourage them and hope that some people will feel the same way and they are lucky enough to get pregnant with the help. Now I take metformin again but not because of the desire for children but because of a permanent decrease. Since my liver values were also very high, I hope it works better this time.

    Side effects: No side effects

    I took metformin for two weeks. At first only diarrhea was seen as a side effect, but the skin started to itch more and more. After consulting my dock, I should divide the tablets and halve the dose. Then on the 13th day the itching got too big and my hands got fat, my lower leg aos looked as if a whole swarm of mosquitoes had caught me. (Allergic shock).

    I report as a relative, I’m sure it improves the sugar levels. But mean, if it does not increase your appetite? And thereby promotes an increase in weight?!.

    Metformin for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    After having treated my type II diabetes through diet and exercise alone (under medical supervision), the values got mixed up in the fall of last year. The fasting sugar daily was over 130 to 170 mg / dl. Then I was prescribed metformin. After initial diarrhea (about 2 days), I initially tolerated the drug very well – except for constant bloating. My blood glucose levels developed fantastically and were better than during the whole previous therapy period. After 2 months of taking time I had for the first time in my life an acute episode of psoriasis (head, genital area – very uncomfortable !!!, thighs, elbows and hands). The prescribed (cortisone-containing) ointments did not help, but thanks to MF, my sugar levels remained good, despite cortisone. After I discontinued MF at the end of January on the recommendation of the dermatologist, psoriasis healed spontaneously. Since my sugar levels were initially within tolerable range again, the doctor agreed that I would not take medication at first. Now the values play crazy again (fasting sugar up to 200 mg / dl) and also the long-term sugar has risen for the first time, instead of falling, so that I now get another medicine. The doctor does not want to prescribe me because of the side effects observed with me MF. What’s more: Here write all of weight loss, I was ALWAYS hungry under the intake of MF and since my blood sugar levels were still good, if I have eaten more (including carbohydrates), I have given in to my hunger. With the success that I have gained 9 pounds from the year before, I lost 15 pounds (this weight I had also kept 1 year). Now without MF I’m not so hungry and I am slowly but steadily decreasing. Can anyone explain to me?

    Metformin for Polycystic ovaries; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    I have been taking metformin for 16 days now. In the first week I started with 1 x 500, now I take 1 x 1000 and from next week I should increase to 1 x 1500. I’ve been having flatulence and diarrhea since then. Since the increase to 1000 comes tremendous nausea feeling and crazy sweats as in women with menopause added. That makes me crazy. Besides, I’m just tired and always exhausted. Is that normal? I would like to stop it, because without metformin I feel better.

    Side effects: Sweats; Fatigue; Flatulence; Diarrhea
