Hoping you fellow Type1’s can share some of your wealth of experience.
There is great deal of discussion in the med community on the efficacy of Metformin, SGLT-2 (ref. Jardiance, etc) and GLT-1 (ref. Victoza, etc) usage with Type 1 diabetics. You see on this forum folks’ experiences on specific drugs.
What has been your Type 1 experience using Metformin? Was it prescribed just for insulin resistance? Did you get the expected outcome? Any side effects expected or unexpected?
Anyone transition (or skip Metformin altogether) to an SGLT-2 or GLT-1 inhibitor? What outcomes were you hoping for? Did you get the expected outcomes? Any unforeseen side effects?
Anyone use a combination SGLT-2 + GLT-1 together (maybe off label)? My doc mentioned the GLT-1 has the potential to reduce DKA risk of the SGLT-2, while providing the A1C drop, weight loss and cardiac benefits, but the studies are not complete.
Love to hear your insight and experiences as insurance companies seem to be starting to loosen the approval for Type 1’s off label RX.
