Question Type 1 Diabetes and Metformin?

Does any Type 1 here have experience with taking Metformin in addition to insulin. I'm getting the impression that it could help with getting BS lower (am averaging 125 for last 90 days) without experiencing so many episodes of hypoglycemia. Is it true? What's your experience?

I have LADA and I love metformin! It lowers my TDD of insulin, which also (in addition to eating low carb) lowers the risk of hypos.

Where can I get information on how it works, especially when used along with insulin? And thanks for the fast response, foxl!
