I take 1 metformin pill (250mg, extended release) once a day. My Doctor started me on metformin about 2 weeks ago for metabolic syndrome. My Father takes glyburide-metformin for his type 2 diabetes. Can metformin cause more frequent urination and bubbles in urine sometimes? I noticed that ever since I started metformin this has happened. If it can cause this then is it something that will go away after the medicine adjusts with the body? Sorry in advance if I posted this in the wrong forum category.

That's a super low dose of Metformin. I didn't even know it came in 250 mg tablets. I thought 500 was the lowest dose. Learn something new every day. So, your doctor prescribed it for "metabolic syndrome." Do you have elevated blood glucose (BG)? If so, what are your numbers? Do you have a fasting blood glucose reading from a lab test or from a finger prick? Also, has your doctor done an A1c test on you? A hemoglobin A1c test measures roughly what your blood glucose has been on average over around the past 3 months.

It doesn't seem to correspond to when I am dehydrated. Has anyone else seen this? I am pretty knew to learning about PCOS. That sounds like an UTI to me, but after a few months without antibiotics it would have gotten worse and it would have been very painful to urinate by this point. With that said, I've never of that being a side effect of PCOS and I've never experienced this. You might want to ask your Dr.? Name: Rachel (36) Hidden Content Husband: Russ (34) Forgot to mention - I have had a urinalysis. No UTI, but I'm not sure they tested for glucose levels. Also, there's no discomfort or other symptoms. The only other thing (besides UTI) that comes to mind is maybe kidneys? It could be protein, but if you had a urinalysis, I think that checks for protein. Weird question, but does it "foam up" in the toilet at all?? (I'm not insane, I promise. LOL My DH has kidney failure, so I'm used to hearing about it.) HSG looks good! But sperm count low at 7 million, rest of s/a normal Cycle 6: Clomid 150mg - no ovulation, took Clomid later because of HSG, maybe that's why? Cycle 7: Clomid 100mg + Follistim 75 iu for 19 days - no ovulation A typical urinalysis includes specific gravity (to see how much stuff is dissolved in your urine), pH, leukocyte esterase (white blood cells), nitrates (for the typical UTI causing bacteria), glucose, protein, blood, urobilinogen, bilirubin (the last two are liver-related).

5 Things That Can Cause Cloudy Pee
Cloudy pee can throw a wrench into an otherwise straightforward bathroom trip. You expected to get in and get out, but now youre spending time squinting at the murky liquid in the toilet bowl. Its smart to take notice of foggy pee and wonder what it might mean. Urine should not be cloudy unless there is a problem, David Kaufman, M.D., director of Central Park Urology , a division of Maiden Lane Medical, tells SELF. Here are a few reasons why your pee might be cloudy, plus what to do about it. 1. You havent been drinking enough water lately. Water helps to dilute your urine, which is why light yellow or clear pee is a sign youre hydrated, according to the Mayo Clinic . When you dont drink enough water, the resulting dehydration can make your pee look like you poured beer into the toilet, but it can also make it hazy due to overconcentration, Kimberly Cooper, M.D., a urologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, tells SELF. If you notice you have cloudy urine, you havent been keeping up with your water intake, and you have no other strange health symptoms, Dr. Cooper recommends drinking more water than usual for a few days and seeing where that gets you. FYI, you dont have to aim to hit eight glasses a daypeoples water needs are actually much more individual than that. Most women need around 11.5 cups of fluids a day, including those from beverages other than water and in foods like soup, according to the Mayo Clinic . If youre definitely getting enough liquids and your cloudy pee still persists, bring it up with your doctor for evaluation. A urinary tract infection happens when bacteria infects any part of your urinary system, including your urethra (the tube that expels pee from your body), bladder, ureters (the tubes connecting your urethra and Continue reading >>

Taking Metformin For Type 2 Diabetes. Started Passing Cloudy Urine. What Does This Indicate?
Taking metformin for type 2 diabetes. Started passing cloudy urine. What does this indicate? I'm a 66 yr old woman recently diagnosed with Type II diabetes . I'm taking Metformin 500 mg X2 daily. I eat no sugar, no refined carbs, only small amounts of vegetables and tiny amounts of fruit if at all. Today I ate a steak, no veggies. Tonight my urine was pretty cloudy afterward. What could this indicate? Answered by Dr. Nsah Bernard 2 hours later The cloudy urine might just be a physiologic response due to you eating a steak and nothing you have to worry about. What you need to do now is observe again your urine for about 24-48hrs. Check for frequency, color (cloudy or not), odor etc any thing that you think might be of clinical interest to a doctor. If the cloudiness goes off and your urine frequency is normal, then you need not worry. But if you notice any abnormally, just see a doctor as soon as possible so a urine analysis and other tests can be done. Hope this helps and wish you a better health. Continue reading >>
Diabetes And Urinary Tract Infections – Things You Need To Know
In this article we will cover everything you need to know about diabetes and your risk for Urinary Tract Infections. Do you have an increased risk of Urinary Tract Infections now that you have diabetes? We will cover what a Urinary Tract Infection is, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment guidelines, as well as why they are more common in people with diabetes. More importantly, we will discuss steps you can take to prevent them! What Is a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)? A urinary tract infection or UTI is an infection anywhere in your bladder, kidneys or in the urinary system. An infection of the upper urinary tract or the bladder is called a bladder infection or cystitis. An infection in the urethra is called urethritis. Women tend to be more at risk of these types of infections due to their anatomy; they have a much shorter area between the urethra and the opening to the urethra to the bladder. Urinary tract infections are rare in men under 50 due to their anatomy. A more serious infection of the lower urinary tract is an infection of the kidney and the ureters and is called pyelonephritis. This is a complication and occurs when the bladder infection progresses to the kidneys. I highly advise reading the following articles: According to the Stanford Medicine’s Michael Hsieh Lab, half of women and men will have experienced a urinary tract infection (UTI) during our lifetime at least once. They are the most common infection, and can lead to death in patients who are experiencing it severely. Antibiotics are the most effective therapy.The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases account 8.1 million visits to the clinic, hospitals for UTI purposes. For women, the risk of getting a UTI is 50 percent greater than a man. What Are The Symptoms of a UTI? L Continue reading >>
Diabetes And Cloudy Urine After Eating Carbohydrates?
Diabetes and cloudy urine after eating carbohydrates? Diabetes and cloudy urine after eating carbohydrates? Can cloudy urine be associated with diabetes? A few years ago, I noticed cloudy urine after eating refined grains. I also experienced bloating around my middle, and a puffy face and neck, after eating these foods. As a result, I removed them from my diet. Now, I'm noticing the same cloudy urine after eating starchy vegetables such as potatoes and sweet potatoes. If I eat a large quantity at one sitting, my urine is so cloudy, I can't see the bottom of the toilet bowl. On a diet of fruits and non-starchy vegetables, my urine is completely clear. My father developed diabetes in his late 50's, my sister in her late 40's. I'm in my mid-50's, and during the past year have developed increasing problems associated with auto immune illnesses (which are common in my family). I believe I test negative for diabetes based on the standard blood test that requires fasting for at least 10 hours. However, my sister also tested negative using this method. Her diabetes wasn't discovered until the need for emergency surgery, which involved her blood being tested in the hospital soon after eating. Is diabetes something I should be investigating? I've also been experiencing neuropathy symptoms in my hands and feet (particularly when I stray from a very restrictive diet of fruits and non-starchy vegetables). I've assumed these symptoms are associated with rheumatoid arthritis, but perhaps I'm wrong? Re: Diabetes and cloudy urine after eating carbohydrates? hi there, I wouldn't worry too much about cloudy urine unless you are having other symptoms that could be kidney issues to bladder issues. If you think there is something going on then you need to see a dr. i have cloudy urine from Continue reading >>
What Is Your Urine Trying To Tell You?
I realize that it may seem strange to be reading a posting about urine. However, last week I wrote about urinary tract infections (which we know are common both in women and in people who have diabetes), so I think this week’s topic is relevant. Also, the color, smell, and consistency of your urine can give you and your doctor helpful information about what might be going on in your body. Historically, looking at urine has been a way for doctors to gauge a person’s health, especially before other types of testing were available. If you’ve had diabetes for a long time or know someone who has, you’ll know that urine testing was a way to figure out how well controlled (or uncontrolled) a persons’ diabetes was — this was done in the days before blood glucose meters were available. Now, of course, we have more sophisticated tools to convey glucose information. But urine still has its place. What is urine? Urine is a waste product that contains breakdown products from food, drinks, medicines, cosmetics, environmental contaminants, and by-products from metabolism and bacteria. Amazingly, urine contains more than 3,000 compounds — much more than what’s found in other body fluids, like saliva or cerebrospinal fluid. The kidneys do a remarkable job of filtering and concentrating to help get these compounds out of the body (you can understand why keeping your kidneys healthy is so important). So, what is your urine telling you? If your urine is… Bright yellow. This may look alarming, especially when your urine seems to be glowing in the dark. But don’t worry — the bright yellow color is likely due to vitamins, specifically, B vitamins and beta carotene. Green or blue. Green or blue urine seems like something straight out of a science fiction movie, but the co Continue reading >>

Side Effects Of Metformin You Must Be Aware Ofhealth World Journal
This is one of the most severe metformin side effects. The absorption of lactate by the liver is affected by metformin in an adverse way. If the kidneys do not process the excess lactate, the blood of the patient acidifies, leading to the whole lot of problems. Most of which are similar to the feeling one gets after an intense workout, say, hyperventilation, anxiety , nausea, irregular heart rate and vomiting. This is the most common metformin side effect. Clinical trials show that about 50% patients who were prescribed metformin are affected by gastrointestinal problems. Though, this isnt the most serious effect but it can still cause extreme discomfort. Nausea, vomiting, cramps and diarrhea are some symptoms of this sort of problem. Luckily enough, these negative effects are observed when the drug is prescribed the first time or the dosage is changed. There have been varied cases in which patients have experienced an allergic reaction to metformin. It is immensely significant to check for an allergic reaction as it requires urgent treatment. You need to keep all the symptoms in mind, such as, trouble in breathing, hives or swelling in the face precisely tongue, lips or throat, when commencing a metformin treatment. Accidental overdoses of metformin are unlikely to have serious repercussions but the risk is higher for children and elderly. Fatalities are rare but they still occur. Intentional overdose of metformin is most likely to result in demise. How to Deal with Metformin Side Effects? As aforementioned, there exist some negative consequences of metformin which can pose the potential threats to the health of the person who takes it. However, not all of the cases are life threatening; lactic acidosis being an exception. Proper care should be taken to slowly elevate Continue reading >>
