Brief Answer: Metformin Not Indicated at present Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern. With the readings that you have mentioned i would classify under Pre-Diabetes (Impaired fasting Glucose). Tell me if you have any family history of diabetes. I would not recommend Metformin treatment at this stage. I recommend you following : 1. HbA1C (Glycosylated Hemoglobin) 2. Lipid Profile. 3. Dietary modifications 4. Reduce at least 5 kgs of weight in next 4-6 months. 5. Daily Exercises. No drug treatment is indicated at present. Review with us with your reports.
