I’m full-figured and have been overweight my entire life. In spite of that, I have always been generally healthy…. until this year.
I just had a blood test last week and learned that I’m Pre-diabetic, with high cholesterol and high triglycerides. So it looks like all of those years of unhealthy habits have finally caught up with me. Diabetes terrifies me since my mother has diabetes and I want to avoid it much as possible.
My doctor asked if I would like to be on medication (Metformin) or just tackle it with a Lifestyle change. I told her I would go the Lifestyle change route, since I am already on Weight Watchers and have been getting into a healthier lifestyle for several months. But, I have noticed my progress with WW slowing a bit, and I’m wondering if it’s due to my insulin resistance. I’m wondering if I should give Metformin a shot.
Is anyone on it and did you notice any side effects?
