The American College of Physicians now recommends the medication Metformin to help bring down high blood sugar in people with type-2 diabetes.

Although the physicians' group just updated its guidelines, many doctors already prescribe the drug to type-2 diabetics.

Experts say Metformin can be effective for many patients, has fewer side-effects and is often less expensive.
