Metformin passing through system undissolved

If Metformin is passing through undissolved, does that mean it is not helping my system?

Sherry if you are taking the Extended Release one it contains a shell like wrapping on the Metformin which can be seen when you go. See it dissolves in your system and you are getting it.

When I was on Metformin XR that always happened to me, some manufactures of the regular Metformin can also be seen, you should not panic this can be a normal thing to see once in awhile.
