Can metformin cause Liver problems?|
I was recently in hospital and it's been deduced that I have non alcoholic cirrhosis of my liver. Essentially, this is caused by too much fat in my diet. It happened a few weeks after I was put back onto metformin which I find coincidental.
I will say right now that my diet hasn't always been the best in the world, but it's hell of a lot better than a lot of others, plus I don't even drink alcohol.
I have a half cocked theory in my mind that my liver when *kablam* due to the metformin because from my understanding, it is this that has kickstarted my body into finally processing fat as opposed to just storing it. Does it even work that way? The doctors I saw certainly don't know, they just kept asking me if I was sure I wasn't diabetic! Or am I completely wrong in my thinking, because I have niggling feeling that metformin only help with carbs and therefore has nothing to do with my liver and fat funtion.
Like I said, it's probably a stupid question so you can make fun of me if you want. On the upside, since I can only eat vegetables and chicken without crippling cramps (feels exactly like gallstones if you're wondering), I'm starting to lose weight again, even if it's just out of fear of the pain!
