: The other day I was reading the latest issue of MMK2, in fact a letter from someone asking about using creatine and metformin (Glucophage) at the same time. The answer was disconcerting to me: the two products would fight each other, one raising blood sugar levels, while the other would diminish it. Well, I never heard anything about creatine having this sort of 'insulin mimicker' properties. Since soon I will try the BodyOpus diet, and I will use metformin to speed up reaching the ketogenic state, I'm concerned about having to stop taking creatine while dieting. And this leads to another point: most probably many guys out there are taking creatine along with vanadyl sulfate, wich is another insulin-mimicker (far less effective than metformin, though). Would those folks been experiencing lessening effects from these stack ??
First,i never used metformin.
Creatin works with or without Vanadyl Sulfate,but on a high dosage of V.S. i only wanna sleep.
My opinion is that V.S. sucks.
I know only one Powerlifter who get results from this "insulin mimicker".
