I am an insulin dependent diabetic an started taking byetta about 2 1/2 months ago I have lost 26 # and reduced my insulin by 1/2 but I still have bouts of nausea . I eat within 10 min . I seem to  be find for 2 weeks then get sick for a few days I also take  metformin , but cut it in 1/2. my dr also put me on gilbizide with the byetta . I  get a trobing in my temples . All of the this goes away as the day progrosses and around 6 or so I feel ok.Just curious if Iam alone with these things

Welcome to the Forum, Tom.  I'm sorry the meds are making you so queasy.  Other members are on some of those and I hope they come and respond to your post so you can talk over your experiences.  You're taking a lot of different medications and I'm wondering if maybe they should be re-evaluated?

hi tom
i am on insulin but really need to loose some weight. i have a question. did the doctor keep you on insulin and give you byetta? I had heard you can't have both. i only do the insulin but when my test is really high i add a glybride tablet. do you think it is the nausea that helped you loose some weight?
do you sweat a lot when you have nausea? sometimes that can mean a different stomach problem.

I am on both but my insulin use has been cut by 75% I think the weight lose is due to both the nausea and also to less insulin . Insulin will put weight on and now after 3 1/2 months the nausea has started to go away. Iam still losing weight and now have lost almost 31#. I check my sugars 2 hours after most meals and if it is high i take a small amount of insulin
