Well it’s finally happened, they’ve invented a longevity pill that’ll have you living as long as 120 years. What they forget to tell you is the common side effects of this commonly prescribed type 2 diabetes drug. I feel awful for diabetics that are ordered to to take this stuff.
I suppose that if you have diabetes it could be the best option for you, but to suggest something with a list of precautions longer than I care to cut-and-paste as a life-extention pill is comical.
Metformin is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. Metformin is for people with type 2 diabetes. Metformin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. If you need to have any type of x-ray or CT scan using a dye that is injected into your veins, you will need to temporarily stop taking metformin. Before taking metformin, tell your doctor if you have liver disease or a history of heart disease. (as soon as you read that presume its not good for your heart or liver)… Some people develop lactic acidosis while taking metformin. Early symptoms may get worse over time and this condition can be fatal. Get emergency medical help if you have even mild symptoms such as: muscle pain or weakness, numb or cold feeling in your arms and legs, trouble breathing, stomach pain, nausea with vomiting, slow or uneven heart rate, dizziness, or feeling very weak or tired….
