This is my first time on Sixto suffers, hopefully someone might be able to help with the above. i have an ileostomy (1981) & in the past suffered a few horrendous embarrassing occassions. For the past 10yrs+ using complementary health I now have no problems. I was diagnosed 4/5 yrs ago that I was borderline diabetic,i am very active healthy diet so treatment has been diet only until recently when i had as slight rise in blood sugar levels. now my Dr wants me on Metfomin & I have heard over the years of the very bad side affects of this medication but my fear is the affect it would have on the ileostomy. Is there any member who is diabetic taking this treatment who could give their views on how they copes ( or not).
