Metab syndrome: An insulin-sensitizing agent, such as metformin, is often used as hyperglycemia treatment in patients with metabolic syndrome. Literature suggests that metformin may help to reverse the pathophysiologic changes of metabolic syndrome. Cannot find any evidence that Rifampin is a risk factor for metabolic syndrome.
