Thanks for that. Do you, or did you notice any difference re energy levels or running ability after taking the medication? It is good to hear from someone who is taking metformin. I have taken it for three weeks now and after feeling a bit sick early on this week has been fine. Did a 10k lat weekend which I found hard, no energy at the end. However this could be due to my lack of preperation!
After battling to avoid taking medication for my type 2 diabetis I have finally surrendered to my GP's wishes and started taking metformin. One good think about trying to keep off the meds is that I started running which I continue to really enjoy. Does anyone have experience of running whilst taking this stuff? I wrote 3 years ago about running with this condition and the view seemed to be that no special dietry requirments were necessary. Now I am taking metformin I'm wondering if this still applies. I run 10k's and half marathons (occasionally)
