Our expert says:
Glucophage is a medication that helps your body to take up sugar slower from the bowel, it also increases the sensitivity for insulin. Someone that is insulin resistant makes enough insulin, but the body has a resistance against it, so it does not do what it is supposed to do. This can lead to high blood sugar levels and weight gain. It is not diabetes, but can develop into diabetes eventually.
You have to exercise daily - at least 20 min of brisk walking or other aerobic exercise and eat a diabetic diet ( low sugar, low fat, and high fibre - look on health 24 website for diabetic diet guidelines)
