Hi I'm considered to be overweight weighing at 90kg's and
Patient :Hi I'm considered to be overweight weighing at 90kg's and 5'10 height. I'm very afraid that I could be diabetic although I'm only 18 years old going on 19 this year. My sister has gone to the gynecologist and the doctor prescribed her Glucophage 500mg as a pre diabetic supplement and also because she has not been getting her periods regularly. I really do want to work out and cut down on sugary foods before I see the gynecologist as my eating habits for the past 2-3 years have not been great. I know it's not safe to take Glucophage without a prescription but do you think it would work for me? Thank you.
