In this video, Dr. Berg talks about metformin and ketosis. Metformin is used for type 2 diabetes and PCOS. It doesn’t increase the insulin unlike other diabetic medications do and it is mainly focused on the insulin receptor. It allows the insulin to be more efficient and to work better in the body. But there is a black box warning which means this medication has serious side effects.
Metformin Side Effects: *Small but fatal lactic acidosis risk.
Lactic Acidosis Symptoms:
• Low pH – Blood
• Electrical Problems – Heart
• Abdominal Pain
Metformin inhibits B1 transformation. For people who are diabetic and is taking metformin, severe lactic acidosis can be reversed by vitamin B1 (Thiamine) in just 24 hours.
