Lowering of blood sugar in type 2 diabetes patients.
How to take:
Start dose of 500mg metformin twice daily, After a week, increase the dose of metformin to 1000 mg as the first dose of the day and 500 mg as the second dose, After another week, increase to 1000 mg of metformin two times a daily, The maximum safe dose described in the Physician’s Desk Reference is 2550 mg a day (which should be taken as 850 mg three times a day).
Anti-aging doctors, on the other hand, have recommended doses as low as 500 mg twice a daily to healthy non-diabetics who are seeking to obtain metformin’s other proven benefits such as enhancing insulin sensitivity and reducing excess levels of insulin, glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.
