  • I do not know, however, you should be able to find something on it on the Susan G. Komen Foundation website or some other site by typing in the disease name. Good luck.

  • When I was first diagnosed that's what my Dr wanted to do too, but that was several years ago. A lot of us take Metformin and it can help. I like SoulCysters.com they have some good info and support forums.
