Type 2 diabetes mellitus but experiencing obesity like me, continue for normal people More recommended Arcabose or Metformin. Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Acarbose and metformin are antidiabetic drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes.
Acarbose works by slowing down the digestion of carbohydrates into sugar that is absorbed by the body, so that blood sugar levels after meals drop. Indeed, in people with type 2 diabetes, consumption of this drug acarbose can lose weight, but we do not recommend that you use this drug as a weight loss drug just like that.
However, this drug is primarily designed to lower blood sugar levels, and taking it wisely and without supervision has the potential to make your blood sugar levels too low or hypoglycemic, and this condition can make a person palpitations, pale, shaking, sweating. , seizures, and even loss of consciousness.
Several studies have tried to use this anti-diabetic drug as a treatment for obesity, which is difficult to help with a healthy lifestyle, but once again, even if it can be used, it is not with independent treatment but still under the supervision of a doctor. Therefore, our advice is that you continue to consult your desire to use acarbose and metformin as weight loss to an internal medicine doctor or a nutritionist, to avoid the adverse effects it might cause when used in normal people.
Meanwhile, of course you should not give up using conventional methods such as jogging, swimming, cycling, reducing carbohydrate intake such as rice, bread, pasta, sweet foods, soft drinks, avoiding stress, cigarette smoke, and sleeping regularly. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
