Thank you for your question.
Yes it is true. Some patients may develop alteration in their taste sense with metformin.
But if you are able to tolerate it, this is a wonder medicine for diabetes with many beneficial effects including reducing blood sugar.
I would advise you to go see your family doctor in person and let them know the side effect you are receiving with the metformin.
