Hi,

Im sorry to hear about your diabetes. However you SHOULD NOT switch from metformin to DBX-13.DBX-13 has been touted as a miracle cure for diabetes however there is NO EVIDENCE that it works in eliminating diabetes. There are no scientific studies, no trials, no case control studies to show its efficacy.

The studies quoted by them have no basis in facts, this is not something that you should try.

I would STRONGLY recommend that you DO NOT stop using metformin and switch to DBX-13. Stopping metformin can lead to harmful effects
