  1. Type two diabetea is almost completely reversible.... why not try to either completely rid yourself of pharmaceuticals or work your way down to the lowest dose possible? I don't know your situation or what form u have just thinking outloud

    Metformin's renal toxicity is what has me cautious. Plus I sh*t myself silly, I strictly use it for cheap/refeed meals in contest prep.

    Reversable? I think you mean treatable?

    Oh yeah bloating/gas/GI is its major adverse effect. Its a high percentage. It has some renal toxicity which is why I mentioned he'd better have a doctor who is watching those labs (Scr).

    Those are the top limiting factors and need to be watched/reported. Always know what you're putting in your body.

    It's somewhat reversible in certain stages/situations. Particularly the "self-imposed" DM 2 that comes from obesity. By that I mean I've seen people not need their meds and fasting glucose controlled by changing diet and losing weight.

  6. Exercise is huge for insulin sensitivity as well obviously.
    Some are just genetically pre-disposed though.

    Yes reversible. Grambo said it better than I. Not in all cases...I'm sure.

    I'd definitely be more focused on the Metabolic syndrome than any other aspect right now as it can lead to major problems.

    How long have you had these problems?

    For the original question, creatine is fine to take with it. Though if you actually have a doctor monitoring (renal function) like he should I'd let him know.
    If I really do have the metabolic,I guess I`ve had it all my life.

    I really wouldn't cut it down or anything and definitely clean up diet. Overall health is the most important thing over being big, in my personal opinion.
    Why did she suhpggest avoiding eggs? Cholesterol? Ha
    I always like to take the lowest effective dose.

    I`m not in touch with this doc really but I can call her on the phone if needed.

  11. So what`s the verdict on this guys?

    Definitely OK together?

    I`ll be lowering the metformin to 250 mg per day.

    I want to start my creatine,I`m in in need of some strength gain.


    And I`ve trimmed down nicely with Glucophage,wouldn`t want to quit it now,summer is approaching..

  12. Unless you know you have some renal impairment I wouldn't worry much about the combination no. Like I said they should be periodically checking Scr though as metformin does have some renal toxicity.

    Just wondering, do you know what your fasting glucose levels come in when you test them?

    Also what dose are you on right now if I've missed that?
