It is usually recommended to take metformin during the meal to decrease gastrointestinal side effects. However, if metformin decreases carbohydrate absorption, this might not be the most efficient intake.
To study the influence of preprandial metformin administration on carbohydrate absorption, it will repeat 3 oral glucose tolerance test on obese dysglycemic patients, without metformin or with metformin administer 30 or 60 minutes before. We will also evaluate how it impacts gastrointestinal tolerance.

A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)
