    Goodmorning, type 1 diabetes is as a result of the failure of the beta cells in the pancreas to produce insulin. So patients with type 1 diabetes are insulin dependent. So gliclazide cannot help to control you blood sugar because what it does is to stimulate the beta cells to produce insulin which is not possible in type 1.
