Hey Scarred....it's ME...from the CP forum.... I hate that I have to see you here. I was Diagnosed exactly 1 year ago...and my sugars are still out of control... My Dr. added Byetta 5 mcg. yesterday to my already large amount of meds... Currently I take: 2X10 mg. Glipizide in the am and the pm...then I have to do a shot of Byetta before I eat breakfast...then I do another shot of Byetta before dinner...then I take 2X850 mg. Metformin ER then a shot of 50 units of Lantus..... Wow!! That is too much.
Along with all of this I also have to take meds for my CP and now Fibro....
I hope you are ok with all of this added pressure...I am here if you need me..
