I have mild fatty liver
and insulin resistance
(prediabetes) I started on Metformin ER and I started taking milk thistle
. My glucose levels are better and my liver enzymes have been normal now for the lst 18 months. I wanted the Metformin ER because diet and execise wasn't helping with glucose levels or weight loss
, I lost 15 pounds on the Met ER too.
I got this info from the link below " Metformin (Glucophage) and rosiglitazone
(Avandia) are oral glucose-lowering (also known as hypoglycemic) medications used to treat type II diabetes. These medications work by correcting insulin resistance. Therefore, these types of drugs may potentially benefit people with NAFLD and insulin resistance. In fact, preliminary studies have shown that treatment with metformin can improve liver enzyme elevations in people with NAFLD."
