Metformin: What You Need to Know

Simply fill out the short form and you'll receive access to this free eBook.

According to the U.S Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 34 million Americans have diabetes (about 1 in 10) and approximately 90–95% of these cases are type 2 diabetes (1). It's also estimated that as many as 1 in 3 adults may have prediabetes.

Metformin is usually the first medication prescribed for patients with type 2 diabetes (2). In 2018, more than 80 million prescriptions were filled in the US (3). While it is highly effective and generally safe, metformin does have some side effects.

In this eBook, we will discuss:
  • What is insulin resistance, and how does it relate to diabetes?
  • What is hemoglobin A1c and how is it used to diagnose diabetes?
  • What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes?
  • How does metformin work?
  • What are the risks and side effects of long-term metformin use?
