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.
