Do I understand this correctly? In Type 2, the pancreas releases the hormone insulin, but the liver doesn't allow the insulin to work with glucose so that the body's cells don't recieve the benefit of the glucose. If this oversimplified version of what happens is true, then isn't the diabetes a problem with the liver? My cholesterol is thankfully very good, but I've had a severe problem with my liver about eight years ago. I'm wondering if this is related or maybe just a poorly functioning liver. I'm taking metformin and starting out with one pill a day for 4 days, then 2 a day, 3 a day over the next two weeks to see how it works for me. Have others had this same experience?
