Any type 1's here on metformin in addition to their insulin requirements? I'm curious how it is going for them…

Thanks for your reply! I'm asking because I'm a type 1 and just went on metformin. I am 5'4" and 119lbs, very active but show a lot of charcteristics of insulin resistance none the less. I have had type 1 for almost 10 years now and I can tell you I have never felt better. I don't have any more spikes in blood sugars…just steady readings. I'm wondering if anyone else has had the same success.

I've seen quite a few patients who are type 1 and overweight or insulin resistant. From what they tell me, the metformin has really helped their blood sugars.
