Metformin for LDL?

...Has anyone seen their LDL go down from their metformin use? The Glycemic Index Diet got my triglycerides down from 350 to 97. With all the other effects that I got from the glycemic index, I tend to believe that I am insulin resistant (pre-diabetes) and I read a report that type two diabetics lowered their LDL when they went on metformin for blood sugar control. I'm thinking of asking my doctor to try it first before he starts me on the Statins.
