Glucophage Weight loss

Human body may be overweight because body makes too much insulin, especially if fat stores primarily in belly. When we eat, our blood sugar level rises. The higher it rises, the more insulin our pancreas releases. Insulin makes us fat by acting on our brain to make us hungry, our liver to manufacture fat, and the fat cells in our belly to fill with fat. So the treatment for this type of obesity is to avoid foods which cause the highest rise in blood sugar and to take medications that prevent our blood sugar levels from rising too high. Bakery products, pastas and all foods made from flour, fruit juices and everything with added sugar should be avoid. Eating fruits and root vegetables such as potatoes only with meals are good for health .

After we eat, sugar goes from our intestines into our bloodstream, and then immediately into our liver. Then our liver releases sugar back into our bloodstream to cause our blood sugar level to rise. To keep blood sugar levels from rising too high, our pancreas release insulin into your bloodstream. Insulin makes us hungry all the time and causes our liver to convert extra calories to fat and it constricts arteries to cause heart attacks. We need insulin to keep blood sugar levels from rising too high to cause diabetes, nerve damage, heart attacks, strokes and kidney damage. Glucophage reduces sugar release from our liver to prevents blood sugar levels from rising too high, so our body doesn't need to produce as much insulin that makes you hungry and causes our liver to make fat.
