The study analyzed information from 14 previous studies (eight in the United States and others in Canada, Australia, Mexico, Europe, Iran and Turkey), which included a total of 946 children ages 10 to 16 who did not have diabetes. The children’s body mass indices (BMIs) ranged from 26 to 41. In most studies, children who took metformin also engaged in lifestyle http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/garcinia-cambogia-extract—crucial-data-released-231403591.html changes aimed at helping them lose weight. On average, children who took metformin for six months achieved a 3.6 percent greater reduction in their BMI compared with those who practiced lifestyle changes alone.

Children in the studies who took metformin for a year saw about the same decrease in BMI as those who practiced lifestyle changes alone.
