 It is my understanding that the anti-DM pills do *nothing* for a Type 1
 DMer. Their purpose mainly is for the cells to accept the insulin rather
 than to resist it. A Type 1 would be wasting their $$ and introducing a
 medication to their bodies that may eventually cause other damage. >>

Having type 1 diabetes does not protect you from being insulin resistant. 
Glucophage helps with insulin resistance. It also helps eliminate excess 
amounts of sugar being released from the liver.
