Metformin Overdose Symptoms And Treatment: What You Should Know

What is Metformin? It is a type of medication called a biguanide, which is used to treat people with type 2 diabetes.

Most people with type 2 diabetes can control their blood sugar levels through regular exercise and healthy diet. In case this does not work, metformin is the first oral diabetes medication that is prescribed to people with type 2 diabetes. It can also be used together with insulin or other diabetes medication to reduce blood glucose levels when it is too high.

    Hi,
    I have started out for the third and final time on Keto on Monday.
    My weight has dropped 3 pounds in 4 days, but the Keto sticks are not changing colour (only started yesterday using them).
    How long does it take the average person to get into Ketsosis, I know there are a lot of variables to consider but I was wondering what people’s experience is?
    Before when I did this, the sticks were changing colour after 3 days.
    Thanks

    The average person (someone who is insulin sensitive) could be in ketosis when they get up every morning.
    I started casually and it took about 2 days for me to get the first symptoms of carb withdrawal.
