  1. A is the answer and the winners are Clement and Area.
    Details Below:
    Metformin increases the use of glucose and increases insulin sensitivity. It is
    not associated with onset of hypoglycaemia and it does not cause weight gain.
    To decrease gastrointestinal side-effects such as abdominal discomfort,
    nausea, diarrhoea and metallic taste, patients are advised to take tablets with
    meals. Gastrointestinal side-effects are quite common and in some patients
    lead to the patient not accepting treatment with metformin.
