A number of environmental risk factors have been reported to be associated with elevated blood glucose and diabetes. However, these associations have primarily been explored in Western populations and few studies have examined diabetic risk factors in novel populations such as the Caribbean.

    I took the fishy smelling metformin back to the pharmacists and told him that bottle of pills was stinking up my bedroom like dead sardines on a fishing boat! He said he understood and told me that the pharmacy was switching to a cheaper manufacturer and they were the ones producing the fishy bottles. However after so many complaints and returns they were switching back to the former manufacturer and a day later they called me to pick up the good stuff with no smell.

    I have been on Metformin for 4 years and until this last bottle, there has been no problem.
    With this bottle, it really stinks when I open it and wondered if I didn't get a bad batch. After reading the posts though, I am thinking maybe my pharmisist changed me to a different company that was less expensive.
    I have had diarrhea very often since starting this bottle too.
    As for the body odour, I haven't noticed any smells.
    I am going to check with the pharmacy to see what's going on
    So glad I checked in.
