Were you looking for information about Metformin? Metaforen is a common misspelling of metformin.
Metformin (Glucophage®) is a prescription medicine used for lowering blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. It is a type of biguanide medication that works by reducing the amount of sugar absorbed into the body, decreasing sugar production in the liver, and making insulin receptors more sensitive. Before your healthcare provider prescribes you metformin, make sure he or she is aware if you have liver problems, kidney problems, or congestive heart failure.
