Hi! So for all of you who have posted with answers to all my questions lately thank you! I finally seemed to have found the correct basal again and am back to my normal diabetes routines
I do have a question though. Today I had a check up to discuss my numbers with the new basal rate from my doctor and he brought up metaformin to help increase insulin sensitivity. I asked about pros and cons and he said he’s had it work well for some type 1s but not others and it really depends on your body. I told him no for the time being as I’m purposely on a weight loss program and as I’m losing weight my insulin sensitivity is improving so I want to try doing it naturally first but said I’d reconsider in the next 6 months. He said the only reason he really wants me to consider it is I do have a higher basal rate and IC ratio and that when I’m older he doesn’t want me on more insulin than I am on right now.
Any thoughts about this or does anyone have any experience they can share if they were put on it at all?
Thanks for the help!
