OF LATE MY SUGARS HAVE BEEN ALL OVER THE PLACE. THIS WEEK THE DOC ADDED AVANDIA TO MY BYETTA & GLUCAPHAGE. NUMBERS HAVE BEEN EXELLENT TODAY & YESTERDAY.

TOMORROW I GO SEE THE DIABETIC DIETICIAN & HOPEFULLY SHE CAN TELL ME WHAT I AM DOING RIGHT OR WRONG WITH MY "FOOD EXCHANGE" PLAN & WHY I CANNOT GET 1200 CALORIES INTO MY SYSTEM.

HOPE YOUR VISIT TO YOUR DOC GOES WELL.

I take the Byetta in combination with 1000mg of Glucophage (Metformin) twice a day. I have been on Byetta since October. I had one day of being sick to my stomach after the injections but no problem in that regard since then. I've lost about 10 pounds since then which is a bonus!

Lately my Glucose levels have been out of control. I don't think it has anything to do with the Byetta. I go back to the doc Feb 1 and look for her to tweak the meds (again).

I HAVE BEEN ON BYETTA FOR OVER A YEAR NOW. AT FIRST IT MAKES YOU VERY SICK TO YOUR STOMACH. BUT THE BODY GETS USE TO IT. THERE ARE NO FOOD CRAVINGS AS THERE ARE WITH INSULIN. MY BLOOD SUGARS ARE IN GOOD CONTROL SINCE I BEGAN IT. I TAKE 10MCG TWICE A DAY. VERY HAPPY WITH ITS RESULTS & I HAVE LOST WEIGHT SINCE TAKING IT!!!!GOOD LUCK.

My doctor mentioned starting me on Byetta this morning at my appointment, and he said we would talk about it at my next appt. in 3 mos. once he sees my blood test results from today. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this med? good or bad??
