I just wanted to update my update. I mentioned that I was about to start metformin and I did start it after writing the above message. And I've felt poorly since I started taking it. It could be that I had an illness but I think it was a combination of the illness and the metformin. I have been listening to a book by Dave Asprey who started bulletproof coffee, called headstrong and it's basically on how to strengthen your mitochondria. And just today, he mentions that some medications can harm your mitochondria and he specifically said that taking metformin makes you energetically inefficient. So I'll take my chances of getting cancer because I feel like a slug and have for a few weeks.
