Are there people whose bodies just won't adapt to metformin?

My doctor is trying to get me off insulin and added metformin two months ago. He started me with 1,000 mg a day and after a month raised it to 2,000 mg a day. I have had massive, explosive diarrhea every single day. I keep reading the diarrhea lasts only two weeks but mine does not get better, not even decreasing the dosage(I'm now down to 500 mg a day). Are there people who just can't take the stuff? The met really stabilized my glucose but I would rather stay on the syringe than live like this.

I am type 2, take 18 units Humulin 70/30 twice a day.
