It used to be that only Type II Diabetics diet controlled or on Metformin could use Cambridge. However, the rules have changed and Type I and Type II Diabetics can use the programmes providing the forms are signed and GP involvement is a must.
i was on metformin for PCOS but on CD i don't think that there's a need for it cause the plan does what the metformin does.
i had to see a specialist consultant to get my doc to prescribe it but it was about 12 years ago. then i lost some weight on CD and fell pregnant. since that time i've not gone back on metformin. piled the weight on with both pregnancies but i think that when you loose with CD and get lower your own insulin starts to kick in.
i was given metformin as part of my PCOS was that i was insulin resistant.... meaning that my body took a very long time to digest sugars and my insulin levels were unstable and not doing their job properly. being insulin resistant does not mean that you are diabetic - unlike one stupid doc i went to see said. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!1
