Brief Answer:
Yes, it does

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Obimet contains Metformin. It does help in weight loss. It decreases carbohydrate absorption from the intestines. It when coupled with exercises makes use of blood glucose very well and increases use of fat for energy. Also, increases insulin sensitivity which helps to transfer nutrients into muscles for energy production.

The result are good but does take time.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
