    Weight loss 26 kg of diarrhea no quality of life I never knew when I can leave the house. Loss of appetite was no longer related to food, hardly any feeling of hunger. My blood levels in general have been very bad. Even had to go to the hospital.

    Metformin for Asthma; Overweight; Diabetes mellitus type ii

    Victoza was re-prescribed to me as part of a rehab stay exactly one year ago and since then I have been injecting 0.6 mg daily. – Side effects have been a weight loss of 32 Kg since the beginning until today, a decrease of my Hba1c value from 8.6 to 5.6, combined with the feeling of feeling 15 years younger overall. Negative side effects were not detectable. I would like to add, however, that during the stay a relentless training on the disease diabetes took place the SO has taught me no family doctor or anyone else! Since then, I’ve radically changed my diet, and as a former motor dyslexic, I even do endurance sports regularly. – I consider this point very important in connection with the successes described at the beginning!

    I got metformin because I was diagnosed with PCO syndrome. Since I reject hormone contraception and thus the pill, I have just received metformin. In addition, birth control pills are poor in insulin resistance 🙂 I had side effects only in the first 2-3 weeks. In the first revenue I had diarrhea, flatulence and loss of appetite, which then quickly put back. I lose weight and only get a little flatulence when I eat something very fatty or carbohydrate. Although the metformin does not work at the moment, the effect should not be seen until the first 10-12 weeks. I’m curious then The therapy with mteformin is in Dt. off-lable, so I have to pay for everything myself. for 4 months that’s around 15 €, so cheaper than the pill, so I’m fine.
