Metformin Safe For Non Diabetic Men?

Updated

Alex Says:


I've read many articles about the possible benefits of Metformin outside diabetes treatment. However I've also read a few articles about health dangers such as heart damage. It seems there is paradoxical information, countering the anti aging claims there's articles stating Metformin actually shortened lifespans in male mice while extending it in females. Is Metformin a safe medication for non diabetic men, or even diabetic men?
