Chris -

This was a great piece, but I found it interesting that it is said that metformin has "been found to improve cardiovascular risk."

From the Diabetes Canada Guidelines it seems that the CV benefit of metformin is less certain: "The demonstrated CV benefit of metformin monotherapy in newly diagnosed participants who were overweight in the UKPDS trial is also cited
as a reason to select metformin as first-line treatment, although other evidence from a meta-analysis of metformin trials has been
equivocal on this matter."
