Understanding Diabetes -- Prevention

Because of the link between obesity and type 2 diabetes, you can do a great deal to reduce your chance of developing the disease by slimming down if you are overweight. This is especially true if diabetes runs in your family. In fact, studies have shown that exercise and a healthy diet can prevent the development of type 2 diabetes in people with pre-diabetes -- a condition that often develops prior to full-blown type 2 diabetes. The medications metformin (Glucophage), pioglitazone (Actos), exenatide (Byetta, Bydureon), and acarbose (Precose) have also been shown to be effective in delaying or preventing type 2 diabetes in those at risk. In someone who already has diabetes, exercise and a nutritionally balanced diet can greatly limit the effects of both types 1 and 2 diabetes on your body.

    I'm new to this forum all together and after reading various threads I am so thankful to find other women out there who are going through the same things as I am.
    I just received my Hyponidd supplements last week and have been trying to find some research to see if it would interact negatively with Alli at all? I have had luck with Alli on many levels, but also am really wanting to start OV again. (No P since January)
    Any advice?
    Thanks you!

    I'm currently on Metformin. Has anyone here made the switch? My current thought is to halve the Met and halve the Hyp for a week. Then for the second week just do all Hyp. Any thoughts?

    Question about dosage:
    Does anyone know how the hyponidd recommended dosage (2 tablets twice a day 20 minutes before meals) compares to metformin? In other words, would the daily dosage of hyponidd be the same as 2500mgs of met, or less?
