Metformin: As we get older, we tend to become Insulin resistant. Metformin acts like a metabolic rejuvenator, and restores Insulin sensitivity. I recommend 500 mg metformin three times daily.

There's no magic pill that gives sustained weight loss, but your doctor will first rule out other causes of obesity like thyroid. Best of luck. ...Read more
