good morning,

last week on my endro appt. she changed my meds from victoza to byetta. she did this for the weight loss benefits. victoza does curb the appetite. but, i am the "eat it all" person. if i am hungry or not i will eat. i stop when i feel really really full. she hopes this will help better. i haven't changed over yet. she said it's my choice. i check out meds so throughly before taking them. does anyone take it and what are your weight loss finds? my A1C was 5.8. it's hasn't been over 6 in years. she is just concerned about weight. i gained 15 pounds in three months. she now wants me to lose it before my next 3 month check up. back to counting carbs which i did when first DX. lost over 80#s now most of it is back.

I don't know if anyone takes it right now. I do know that Ellen took it at one time. Perhaps you can PM her. She posts in here sometimes but usually hangs out in Sugar Busters.

(I'd kill for your HA1C readings!)

I took Byetta and got the worse case of nausea and vomiting. It also sparked off gastroparesis in me because Byetta slows down digestion. It took a year for my body to recover from the gastroparesis but I will never take Byetta again.
