Metformin Weight Loss – Does It Work?

Metformin weight loss claims are something that are often talked about by health professionals to be one of the benefits of commencing metformin therapy, but are they true? At myheart.net we’ve helped millions of people through our articles and answers. Now our authors are keeping readers up to date with cutting edge heart disease information through twitter. Follow Dr Ahmed on Twitter @MustafaAhmedMD Metformin is possibly one of the most important treatments in Type II Diabetes, so the question of metformin weight loss is of the utmost importance, as if true it could provide a means to lose weight as well as control high sugar levels found in diabetes. What is Metformin? Metformin is an oral hypoglycemic medication – meaning it reduces levels of sugar, or more specifically glucose in the blood. It is so effective that the American Diabetes Association says that unless there is a strong reason not to, metformin should be commenced at the onset of Type II Diabetes. Metformin comes in tablet form and the dose is gradually increased until the maximum dose required is achieved. How Does Metformin Work & Why Would it Cause Weight Loss?

    Is it okay to take Metformin without food?

    Hi All:
    I normally take my Metformin with food but tonight I had to take my Metformin and I did not have food around. I did not take my Metformin with food tonight. This is rare though. My question is this. Is it okay to take Metformin without food once in awhile? I am a little nervous so any help in this matter would be apprecated. I think I may have asked a similar question before so my apologies for being repetitive.
    Best Regards,

    Re: Is it okay to take Metformin without food?

    The reason for taking metformin with food is that if you are inclined to have an unsettled stomach when taking it, the food will help to prevent that. It will still work just as well without the food, and it will not do any harm, especially since this is a one-time occurence, and not a regular thing, I might be inclined to drink a little extra water to help speed the medication through the stomach a little more easily, but I wouldn't be worried about any ill effects, and certainly not any lasting effects..

    The only reason I know to take metformin with food is to minimise the possibility of gastro side effects.
    I have never had that problem so I take 1000mg on waking, before breakfast, and 1000mg at bedtime regardless of whether I have a bedtime snack or not. After a lot of experimentation I found those times most effective for me.
    If you don't suffer from side effects take it at the time which suits you best.

Can Metformin Help With Weight Loss?

Metformin is a drug prescribed to manage blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. You may have heard that metformin can also help you lose weight. But is it true? The answer is a resounding maybe. Here’s what you should know about what metformin can do for weight loss, as well as why your doctor may prescribe it for you. According to research, metformin can help some people lose weight. However, it’s not clear why metformin may cause weight loss. One theory is that it may prompt you to eat less by reducing your appetite. It may also change the way your body uses and stores fat. Although studies have shown that metformin may help with weight loss, the drug is not a quick-fix solution. According to one long-term study, the weight loss from metformin tends to occur gradually over one to two years. The amount of weight lost also varies from person to person. In the study, the average amount of weight lost after two or more years was four to seven pounds. Taking the drug without following other healthy habits may not lead to weight loss. Individuals who follow a healthy diet and exercise while taking metformin tend to lose the most weight. This may be because metformin is Continue reading >>

    Hi,
    So, finally got my A1C test and it showed diabetes, (not so high, but apparently it's been going on in my body for years now since the neuropathy in my feet has been going on for at least 3 to 5 years and both doctors attribute it to the diabetes), anyway...
    I've been cruising around the forums reading different topics and I stumbled upon one topic where somebody felt wobbly and said they'd not eaten a full meal in a while, which got me thinking... What happens if you take Metformin but don't eat regularly? Is that going to end up using up too much sugar in my blood and make me feel light headed or wobbly?
    I generally eat one time a day, (trying to keep it between 6 and 7:30 pm instead of my old routine of 10 to 11pm supper) and I have absolutely no interest in breakfast, or lunch for that matter and have eaten like this for most of my adult life. I used to think it strange that I stay the same weight with only eating once a day but then learned from a nutritionist that I need to eat at least 5 times a day to loose weight so I tried it and indeed I lost a lot of weight but I soon went back to just eating once a day as I just don't really enjoy eating and the weight eventually came back on.
    Anyway, the doctor is putting me on Janumet XR 50-1,000 MG tablets to try to get my Diabetes under control, but if I don't eat regularly will it matter at all? It won't end up making me wobbly or crash out during the day if I don't eat regularly will it?
    Thanks

    I think metformin taken without can cause a big bs drop although my doc insists its not possible. I was put on two 850mg met twice a day last year & did not eat breakfast, took my metformin and went shopping two hours later, it was very hot day, i started sweating so bad, running down my head, felt drunk, thirsty and made my way to my car, drove home in five minutes, took my bs 3.4 wow my first unknown hypo.
    Since that time i stopped taking metformin many times for short periods due to getting bad chest and back pains but past two months im taking one 500mg SR met a day with two 40mg gliclazide which do cause hypos.
    So i would be very careful, you might even get the trots as i did with metformin so keep up your fluids, if you dont fancy a meal just try a small snack is my advice but i only had diabetes type 2 for three years.

Metformin is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. Metformin is used together with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
