Derrick (2 years ago):

male 41, type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. I find when the dosage it upped by my doctor it causes a few weeks of diarrhea until my system gets used to. I also find that when I eat a high carb. food or get too much sugar in my meal I get completely liquified stool a few hours later. I currently am on 2000mg of MetFormin daily.
