I'm new to this forum (or any forum for that matter!).
I started on Byetta one week ago.
I'm very discouraged.
I've got nausea & my BS numbers are up!!!
Fasting BS was 225 this AM!
My weight has not moved either.
I feel I'm eating more carbs to settle my stomach.
Crackers, toast, etc.
I had been on 100 units of Lantus at night & 1 Actos in the AM.
Dr. dropped me to 70 of Lantus & 1/2 Actos.
I put my Actos back to 1 per AM.
My Hgb A1c has run between 6.8-7.8 over the past 9 months.
I'm 53 y.o. female that was diagnosed when I was 45.
Had breast cancer 3 & 1/2 years ago & lost 45 lbs during treatment.
Yes, I'm still 70 lbs overweight & don't exercise as I should.
Anyone with a similar experience or any word of wisdom forme.
I'd really appreciate it.
