Glucophage Dosage

I am pre-diabetic. What is the correct dosage for an insulin level of 13.4? My glucose level is 4.3. Will glucophage make me fat in the long term? I am desperate to lose weight!

Hallo Marike
Glucophage will probably help with weight loss if you are insulin resistant. It is however very important that you eat a diabetic (low GI) diet and exercise for at least 30 minutes a day.
