Concerns Raised Over Diabetes Treatment in Nigeria: The Metformin Menace – Dr. Babatunde Ogunriade



In a shocking revelation, Dr. Babatunde Ogunriade, a renowned Nigerian Endocrinologist, exposes widespread irregularities in diabetes treatment in Nigeria. Despite being considered the best specialist in the country, Dr. Ogunriade unveils the dangers of relying on metformin-based drugs for type-2 diabetes.

According to Dr. Ogunriade, metformin, found in popular medications like Bagomet, Vero-metformin, and Glycomet, poses severe health risks. The drug significantly increases insulin levels, thickening the blood, and causing harm to vital organs such as the liver and kidneys. The consequences include abnormal cell division leading to oncology, cholesterol buildup in blood vessels, and a staggering 98% of diabetic patients suffering from hypertension.

The list of side effects associated with metformin treatment is alarming, ranging from stomach problems and high blood pressure to cirrhosis of the liver, kidney stones, cancer-related diseases, and even early death due to damaged blood vessels.

Dr. Ogunriade accuses many doctors of neglecting patient health, prescribing these drugs due to profitability rather than genuine concern. He emphasizes the urgent need for patients to be aware of the potential consequences of continuous metformin use and urges them to choose alternative treatments.

The article concludes with a poignant statement from Dr. Ogunriade, asserting that treating diabetes with strong chemicals is a crime. Despite the dangers, he underscores the curability of type-2 diabetes through the adoption of the right treatment. Dr. Ogunriade urges patients to be vigilant, question their treatments, and make informed decisions to safeguard their health.
