Dear P Singh
Antagolin is a substance touted to improve insulin resistance and lower glucose levels but to date has no significant trials to support its use in diabetes prevention or weight loss. In the formal medical community it is not a recognized treatment or is on any of the diabetes guidelines. I am however not aware of any reports of it causing diabetes, and in terms of it of its potential mechanism of action would think it unlikely to cause or aggravate diabetes.

Hi, I would like to know if Antagolin can be used just as a tipe of Weight Loss booster even if you don't know if you have an insulin problem. Is it safe? I don't want to use something that can be harmful to my body? Then I will rather just eat right and exercise alone. I also use other meds for anxiety and dep. Can I use it with these kinds of meds?

Hi there, I have used antagolin 2 a day for the past week and now i have developed a bad skin rash on the neck, arms an feet. Could this be a result of antagolin or should i discontinue the use of it.

Can Antagolin cause a vaginal infection and stomach cramps? I have been suffering from this since starting Antagolin, and want to know if it is related.

Hi

My boyfirend has type 2 diabetes and we have started him on antagolin, hes down to one gluophage a day and two antagolin a day and his sugar has leveled out to 6 for the last two months (antagolin also 2 months). He keeps getting a rash bad one on the legs and spreads over a few days to the rest of his body. He has had this rash a few times in the past two years, 1st they told him it was because his blood pressure pills and gluphoage were not working together (changed the BP pills) then it was a fungus, now they say hes allergic to the antigolin - its a terrible rash and it drives him up the wall, pls could you maybe advise on what you think it could be from. - Thanks
