Did anybody experience iron and Vit D depletion with metformin and used amaryl and galvus(vildagliptin) successfully
glimepiride (amaryl) or / and vildagliptin(... - Diabetes India
I have been a victim and no doctor was able to find out. After 3 years of suffering I am now on to lantus injection.
yes i was about to start lantus but gp said some side effects so continued meformin .now trying amaryl
what are the side effects that s/he mentioned? is this about lantus or insulin injection in general?
i think it was kidney or liver related complications i do not recollect exactly as it was almost 2 years
Ehm...insulin is injected subcutaneously, how could it possibly affecting kidney and liver? Unlike pills, insulin doesn't go through GI tract and get absorbed by kidney or liver
In people with Type 2 diabetes who take metformin therapy, serum folic acid levels decrease 7 percent and vitamin B12 levels decrease by 14 percent. B12 and folic acid depletion also increases homocysteine levels. In addition, metformin may deplete CoQ10, thereby increasing heart disease risk.
I developed vitamin b12 sufficiency. VERY traumatic. Now I'm taking metformin+cobalamin
after stopping metformin my haemoglobin jumped from 10 to 14.2 without any effort . hba1c is 5.2 with 50mg x 2 vildagliptin and 1mg x glimeperide
Can anyone say, Is it any complication or side effect for lantus insulin? I m using it for the past 3 years.
