WHAT IS METFORMIN?
Metformin has been used in a variety of health disease states to help control blood sugar, increase fertility in patients with PCOS, and aid in weight loss. It works to decrease hepatic glucose production, decrease intestinal absorption of glucose and improves insulin sensitivity by increasing peripheral glucose uptake and utilization. Current studies are looking at metformin’s effect on improving physiologic responses to processes such as inflammation, oxidative damage, diminished autophagy, cell senescence and apoptosis.
