Could you tell me what happens if a normal person takes metformin?

Could you tell me what happens if a normal person takes metformin?

Generally nothing: Since metformin doesn't actively lower glucose, it just makes you more sensitive to your own insulin, it won't do anything to your blood sugar. Depending upon how much you take, it could cause stomach upset, diarrhea, etc the same as it can in anyone. Why take medication if you don't need it? That's not smart. ...Read more

Is it safe to take metformin and milkthistle?

Herbs and diabetes: The active ingredient in milkthistle is silymarin. As with many herbs, there are many anecdotes, and little data. Also, do not assume that an herb, because it is "natural", is necessarily better than a drug. However, I do not see anything bad about silymarin in reasonable doses in the limited literature available, so I don't see any problem with combining it with metformin. Inform your doctor. ...Read more
