I have been on a few meds for my diabetes in past years. A couple of weeks ago i got put on Humulin N. I started out taking 10 units, then up to 17 units. I still take 20mgs of Glyburdie. I got a call from my doctor saying i needed to come in. He wants to take me off the Humulin N and put me on BYETTA. He said if that does not work then i'll be on insulin 4 times a day. I have never heard of the shot before.
Does anyone else take this? I thought it was strange that he took me off insulin so fast. I have already been on metformin for years. tried actos, gained 40 + pounds with that. Then i tried Prandin. My sugars have been out of control for almost two years now, plus who knows how long i had diabetes before i found out. I'm wondering how much damage it has done!
My doctor isn't one for checking these unless he feels there is just cause.
