Serpentina: The Herb For Diabetes, Liver, Heart Disease, Kidney, Colds And Flu

Serpentina is a medicinal herb dubbed as the ‘King of Bitters’. Despite its bitter taste, it is widely sought after by diabetics because of its efficacy to lower blood sugar. This herb can be taken by itself or mixed with food to lessen the bitterness. I once suffered from diarrhea. Aware of the potency of Serpentina, I took it by making tea (5 leaves of Serpentina to 1 cup of water) thrice a day. I had to eat a little chocolate in between sips just to finish a cup of it! The following morning my stomachache was history. I also noticed that I was healed from my cold and nasal congestion when I ate Serpentina leaves with honey. Because of this, Serpentina makes it to my go-to list for stomachache, common cold and asthma remedies. Some customers amusingly narrate to us how much they enjoy eating this fresh ‘Bile of the Earth’ together with their family. Happy customers, too, relate unbelievable healing results from stroke, insulin and lung infection. This herb is popularly known in the Philippines as Serpentina but its name in the ‘List of Philippine Medicinal Plants’ is Sinta. It is known scientifically and internationally as Andrographis Paniculata. This traditional med Continue reading >>

    Metformin side effects

    Hello
    I am a 68 year old male caucasian with type 2 diabetes diagnosed in 2011. I have been taking Metformin 1000 twice per day, along with Glyburide 2.5 (once) and Losartan 100 (once) for hypertension. My numbers are still more or less ok with medication, last A1c was 5.9, daily fasting glucose about 100. Struggling to lose weight.... the story of my life.
    My question is regarding Metformin and diarrhea. About 4 or 5 days per week I have an explosive bathroom emergency, perhaps 3 or 4 incidents usually during the afternoon. I am looking for ways to mitigate this.
    Though I have not kept careful records, it *seems* that if I eat roughage on one day, then the next day I have the problem. Most of my adult life I have eaten fruits and veggies, dark greens, salads, etc. It *seems* that on days when I eat a blander, more digestible diet.... i.e. no salads, no apples etc.... then the next day I may not have the problem.
    Has anyone found foods that make this problem better or worse? Are there perhaps specific foods that can be eaten along with the meds that have helped somebody?
    Alternatively, might there be an advantage to splitting the 1000 mg tablets in half and taking 4 times per day?
    Metformin has been around a long time and is no longer experimental. Also it's not expensive. I like the idea of sticking with it. Some of the more modern drugs have turned out to have serious side effects.
    What is the general feedback on extended release Metformin? Does this help with the problem? Is it a lot more expensive?
    What is some feedback on alternative drugs like those advertised ad nauseum (pun intended) on tv?
    Thanks for whatever feedback y'all can give.
    I did try searching this forum for this question, but did not find accurate results.
    Cheers
    Mike

    I posted this just six hours ago . . . Hi!
    And yes - ask your doc for metformin extended release - it does reduce the explosive side effects.

    I'm a bit surprised that a search did not yield useful results!
    Metformin and insulin are the oldest meds; both are still the safest and most effective meds for glucose control and avoidance of complications.
    That said ... Metformin's side-effects are well known. Most folks who experience them do seem to do better on Metformin Extended Release, because the medicine is delivered in amounts that are easier to tolerate. Since this version requires a prescription, prices will vary depending on insurance coverage.
    As for Invokana, Januvia and all the other "as shown on TV" meds ... all of them tend to force the pancreas to work harder. Immediate numbers go down, but pancreas function ultimately suffers.
