I have been diagnosed with insulin resistance Nov 2011. Taking METFORMIN, HCL ER 2000mg (since 11/4/11 worked my way up to full dose). Been on full dose for 2.5 weeks now. No weight loss. I am keeping total daily carbs under 45grams per day. Total calories < 1400. PROTEIN = 60-80GRAMS PER DAY. Diet controlled w/dietician every 6 weeks. I work out 5x per week, 45 mins each time = 50/50 cardio/strength training. Drink 8 glasses of water per day. I am very frustrated. How long does full dose of MET 2000mg take to lose any weight? My endo says he feels I can lose 10 lbs by the follow up appt 2/3/12. I haven't lose one ounce yet. PLEASE HELP. DEE
I cut out all sugar but for
in my morning coffee. I cut out white bread, white rice and white potatoes (well occasional potatoes). drinking more water. Im down 7 so far and ive been on it less than a week.
I've been taking Metformin 2000 mg for the last 8 months for type2 diabetes and I've lost
20 lbs. I am still eating the regular meals (consist of rice/meat/veggie or pasta) but no desserts. I've been working out a bit more just becasue my doctor told me to. I've been drinking alot more water also because I am thirsty all the time. The side effect for me with Metformin is that I have to run to the bathroom all the time, everything that I eat will come right out (not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing).
