Metformin and fibrosis

My father had DD and IPF (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis). Researching (Googling) IPF and alternative treatments I came across this article on Metformin and it’s effect on lung fibrosis. Could Metformin help DD? DD is a form of fibrosis after all.

I am not a scientific person - steep learning curve, so welcome the input of the more learned DD-folk.

Hi warthog, it would seem research is already underway https://www.fasebj.org/doi/abs/10.1096/f...plement.1034.13
Edited to add this precedes the publication you quote, so maybe it was not followed up further, or I can’t quickly find the suggested follow up.

Re: Metformin and fibrosis

This is good news. More research on my side and then a visit to my doc to discuss. Thanks for the link, SB
