A friend of mine just returned from a vacation in Paris. Her husband takes Byetta, and over there they have it in pill form. He looked into getting some...but it was too expensive. They only use it for weight loss there. He is thin, so the pharmacist was curious as to why he was taking it, and was surprised to hear it is used for blood sugar control here.
I use it for diabetes. It does wonders for my blood glucose levels, but the weight loss stopped after the first month. There is a bit of appetite control still, but if I were not using it for the bg control, I sure would not spend the money on it for weight loss.
