I went to the Dr and he said no to Lantus but considered adding another med but wants to see my results in 3 months of numbers with upping Victoza to 1.2. With the 130 I wanted something more but told him I will see how my a1c is and if it's up or not gone down then I will call and have him add the other med. Well guess what!!!! Even with the 130 my a1c went down from 6.6 to 5.6 so I guess I was in panic mode but I'm obviously doing something right. I am going to see though what numbers are with the 1.2 dose of Victoza and in 3 months if not under 130 then I will ask for the other med in addition to Victoza. With me being deliginent with what goes in my body and my Dr support I'm showing I'm able to get my numbers down. I'm so happy. Goes to show sometimes we know what's best for our bodies than Dr. I would have never gotten there with my other Dr

Hi and welcome back! I'm glad it's working for you! Lantus is insulin and if you don't need it, then you shouldn't be on it. I think the Victoza with diet and exercise is keeping your blood sugar more normal. Good luck and I hope it continues.

I was just wondering about it so I asked him. But because I didn't just settle for what one Dr told me I got my numbers down. I found a Dr who listened to me and I succeeded. I'm living with a good a1c and I'm happy

Yes, the 5.6 is a great A1c! It's in your best interest to keep it at that level at least, and the fewer different meds for diabetes the better for the body. Fingers crossed it continues for you!

That's my goal. I'm never stopping meds but I'm going to keep a big interest in what goes into my body
