Glucophage

Is it safe to use Glucophage during pregnancy? I use 2000 mg a day (my fasting insulin leveles were 37.5)

Glucophage is safe in pregnancy. The usual dose is 850mg twice daily. You should check with your gynaecologist whether it is necessary to continue because in pregnancy it is only used for high sugars, not insulin resistance.
