I visited my endo yesterday and he is putting me on Symlin. Currently my TDD is 110 units a day along with 2000mg of metformin/day. I am not overweight and was diagnosed when I was 15; now 23. My endo said the metformin and symlin go along together nicely and he suspects my TDD will go down significantly. Time will tell, I pick up my script tomorrow and I will post back.
I know Im bumping an old topic...but better to reply here than start a new thread :) I just saw my endo (first endo visit in a long time) after my AIC's slowing creeping up over the last 18 months. In the end, she put me on a low dose of Symlin (15mcg to start then up to 30mcg) and a low dose of metformin. Im about 20 lbs overweight that I cant get rid of, and eat fairly low carb (under 100g/day, usually under 70g/day). My endo labled me as a type 1.5 as Ive gained weight over the last decade and have grown somewhat insulin resistant.
So to answer the OP, yes, Im on both now. I also use an Omnipod, no CGMS.
