Hi,
Metformin can certainly cause diarrhea although it commonly improves after a few weeks of being on the medication. Diabetes itself can predispose you to certain intestinal problems that can cause diarrhea too. Definitely follow up with your GI specialist to see what other suggestions they may have aside from the metformin.
In the meantime try to stick with bland foods and drink lots of water.
Take care.
