Finally, I want to say my dinner party went well. My mom came over an hour early and entertained the twins so I could cook. My BIL fixed the tv, and I have to confess I feel really stupid about it. Apparently it was disconnected from the cable in the back, and I hadn't even checked it because I knew Claire was messing around with the buttons in the front and the same thing had happened last week where she programmed channel 3 out of existence. Stupid assumptions.
Diabetes is believed by many gerontologists to be an example of accelerated or premature aging. Nearly everyone past middle age suffers from a loss of glucose tolerance with age. Metformin’s benefits may also include reducing the risk of age-related diabetes, prevention of sugar cravings, improved body composition with improved insulin use and the stabilization of sugar levels.
Metformin also lowers cholesterol levels and helps prevent low-density lipoproteins (‘bad cholesterol’) from attaching to blood platelets and arteries, thereby reducing the risk of blood clotting. Due to the sugar stabilizing properties of Metformin, it is also a useful aid for dieters, helping to prevent sugar cravings.
