Long-term effects of metformin on metabolism and microvascular and macrovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Arch. Intern. Med. 2009 Mar 23;169(6):616-25.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

... CONCLUSIONS: Metformin, added to insulin in patients with DM2, improved body weight, glycemic control, and insulin requirements but did not improve the primary end point. Metformin did, however, reduce the risk of macrovascular disease after a follow-up period of 4.3 years. These sustained beneficial effects support the policy to continue metformin treatment after the introduction of insulin in any patient with DM2, unless contraindicated. Trial Registration ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00375388.
