type2 diabetes

I am a 70 year old diabetic male, Type 2 for 4 yrs, and take Glucophage and Glycomin.
Thankfully I have no serious issues other than an inactive Thyroid that I medicate with Eltroxin.
My eyes have tested ok and I have dropped in weight from 88 to 68kg

I do believe that the Eltroxin hormone adjusted my
metabolism and that contributed to my wonderful weight loss.

The internet and other articles keep me well informed about nutrition, vitamins, minerals etc and I appreciate blogs such as this.

But there is one item about which I cannot find an answer.

Could someone kindly enlighten me about the chemical and
remedial action of Glycogen / Glycomin, and how it compares
with Glucophage / Metformin ???

Dear Boris
I apologise for only answering your question today, but I have been away and my site was supposed to be closed for the period of my absence. I am the Diet Expert and would recommend that you ask CyberDoc to explain the difference between these medications for you. You can also ask your pharmacist.
Glad you are feeling so much better.
Best regards
