Let me explain again: It is a fact that Metformin induces beta-amyloid aggregates.
So remember: Endocrinologists themselves published this in their International Journal:While metformin by itself increases the formation of Β-amyloid
This association was weakened after adjusting for serum vitamin B12 levels; thus any effect metformin has on cognitive performance may be at least partially mediated by altering serum vitamin B12 levels.
There was insufﬁcient information regarding the duration of metformin use, the severity ofdiabetes(e.g.,HbA1c levels), duration of diabetes, or use of other antidiabetic drugs to enable us to investigate these effects in our study, particularly because these ﬁndings were based on a small sample.
We recommend a larger study to examine the effect of dose and duration of metformin use, and the effects of other antidiabetic agents using a battery of cognitive assessments and following participants over a number of years.

If you can afford it - there is a new drug called jardiance. Jardiance has the effect of weight loss and replaces insulin but it is a new drug so its expensive
Good luck with your pharmacist. please let me know how it has worked out.
You may also want to check out the local y to see if you can use their bike. Cycling is weightless and you may be able to manage it. Also the local community centre may offer some program for water aerobics.
You need exercise to stay off insulin

Sorry to hear about your health woes. Try this: cut out all sources of unsaturated oil and never use them to cook your foods. This means not eating out, to avoid the unsaturated oils used in eateries... Small amounts of saturated oils like butter and coconut oils are fine. Take a Vit E cap of 300 - 400 IU daily (helps to repair the system damaged by unsaturated oils). Do not eat nuts as these often contain very high unsaturates; no fried foods of any kind and no fish oils too. Do this for a few months and see whether your diabetic condition will improve or not. Read up articles on the subject of "The Randle Cycle" to get a better understanding of the inhibition of glucose oxidation by unsaturated oils. Check your thyroid health status as well for it can be greatly compromised by chronic ingestion of unsaturated oils.
