    Rare But Serious Metformin Side Effects

    There is a very rare, but very serious side effect that can occur while taking metformin. The condition is called Lactic Acidosis. If you are having any of these symptoms: increased sleepiness or unexplained lethargy, weakness, decreased or slowed heart rate, cold sensations, stomach pains, or if you are feeling light headed or have fainted either before or after taking metformin you could be showing some of the symptoms of lactic acidosis. This is a dangerous syndrome and you should seek emergency medical help right away.

    Chest pain has been reported and other metformin side effects such as flushing, red face, etc. You should also be concerned if you are allergic to metformin or have allergic reactions after taking it. Allergic reactions can be marked by rashes, hives, itching, difficulties with breathing, or unexplained swelling.

    that glucose was insufficient as an energy carrier during intense synaptic activity and finally, that lactate can be an efficient energy substrate capable of sustaining and enhancing brain aerobic energy metabolism in vitro.[21] The paper was positively commented by Kasischke: "The study by Ivanov et al. (2011) also provides novel data on biphasic NAD(P)H fluorescence transients, an important physiological response to neural activation that has been reproduced in many studies and that is believed to originate predominately from activity-induced concentration changes to the cellular NADH pools."[22]


    Lactic acid is developing brain energy, I guess it would be repairing brain energy also. A lot of thinking has changed about lactic acid in the past couple years. I know that there are a couple of ridiculously muscular women I've seen around that have this all over golden glow and I am sure its the lactic acid causing it. It looks breathtaking.
