Have you been tested for fatty liver?

Yes.

What does that have to do with metformin.


Metformin will not help much with fatty liver and since diabetes is caused by fatty liver,

And yet I'm diabetic and don't have fatty liver

can you please explain that one for me?

That sounds like a pretty good idea. I ate some m&Ms for lunch and my diabetes wasnt cured. I want a refund for my time in here.

Don't any of you have doctors to turn to for advice? I like building my own PCs, but if I were concerned about my health I would ask a certified endocrinologist, not random people on the internetz.

PS Yes, you can google stuff. So can doctors, who also have 1000s of hours of experience.

Pretty much the entire thread amounts to everyone telling the OP to stop believing random BS he reads on the internet and at least consider the possibility that the medical community knows a thing or two about diabetes... :wink:

A cow-orker 100% buys into the carburetor conspiracy theory, fluoridated water being bad, and a whole raft of other conspiracy theories, up to and including that WTC was a controlled demolition. Somehow he sees fit to mock flat-Earthers and deride them because no matter how you explain how they're wrong, there's a "but!" with them that you can never satisfy.

It'd be fascinating if it wasn't so infuriating, especially around election time.

I have a relative (on my wife's side) like that. Chemtrails, Obama is a Muslim, 9/11 was an inside job, you name it. The part I really don't get is, if you ignore the fact that he seems to buy into every crackpot conspiracy theory that crosses his e-mail inbox or Facebook feed, he's actually a pretty smart guy. Seriously, WTF?!?? How do otherwise intelligent people behave like this without their head exploding?

Ayuh, same deal with my cow-orker. The Dunning-Kruger effect is real; I've seen it in several people with high INT who've failed their WIS checks.

Uh, well. I've emulated a PDP-10 using SimH and run 4.3BSD-quasijarus on an emulated VAX, but nothing that old in anger. Oldest kit I've laid paws on would have to be an Apple ][+ in middle school when it was already past due for the knacker's.

It still had mixed-case, though. :P

Those electro-mechanical Teletypes were marvels of mid-20th century engineering. Quite amazing that something built out of solenoids and motors could turn a serial data stream into printed text, and key depressions into serial data.
