Re: [IP] Any type 1s on Metformin?



My information on metformin is that it stops your liver from dumping 
glycogen into your bloodstream.  To quote Wikipedia "  Metformin decreases 
hyperglycemia primarily by suppressing glucose production by the liver 
(hepatic gluconeogenesis)"

I had a c-Peptide test done after a month on metformin 500mg 3 times a day.
I to am on U-500. I no longer produce insulin in my bogy. Metformin did not
work to lower my insulin requirements.
