    Does anyone take Jardiance with type 1 (while honeymooning)? My a1c is 6 (u.s.) and it keeps my BG down for now but I have this nagging feeling that I should give it up and only take insulin. At least that's what people are telling me. Stopping would mean that my BG would be about 50 points higher.
    Thoughts?

    My drs have told me that Jardiance will be safe and effective to help treat Type 1 patients along with insulin. The clinical trials are underway and I think in China, it has already been approved.
