The metformin sounds like a GREAT idea! Wouldn't it be great if it worked for everything? Did you have a workup by a reproductive endocrinologist ever?
When my dh was big on taking all of his anti-aging supplements, he also started taking metformin because he wanted the benefits, not because he had a medical reason.
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.Anti-aging benefits
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.
Stacy, I hope your dh is over his whiny snotapus phase. The main times my dh gets really touchy is if I'm irritated, and I can't stand it. Even if it's not at him, or if I'm doing my level best to get over it, he sees my temper and raises me, which makes it way harder to get over my initial annoyance. So I know how it is, and it doesn't help to be somewhat of the instigator.
