Hi Tutorgirl, although I don't use Byetta or other medication, I do follow Dr. Bernstein's diet. I just bought his Diabetes Diet which is a good companion to the Solutions book. All I can say is that I have lost weight and my blood sugar has normalized because I have followed his guidelines for food and I also exercise more than I did before. I hope you find good results too. And be sure to measure your blood sugar often so you don't go too low after you change your diet. Good luck.
"pre-diabetic" controlled so far by diet and exercise
following low/no carb diet, no meds
