Hi, I joined this community on behalf of my mum who has type 2. She has recently been injecting Byetta (on its own) having been taken off Metformin due to its dreadfull side effects which nearly resulted in her being persuaded to have a colostomy which was totally unnecessary. She still takes BP meds together with diuretics. She has lost around 2 1/2 stone in such a short time but her daily average levels have been over 24. This past weekend her levels were so high they could not be read at all. I tried everything to try and help her, normally walking helps bring her levels down.
Is there anyone out there who uses only Byetta? Do you find that your levels are high? If not any advice on the the type of food to eat with Byetta. My mum is very good with the type of foods she consumes but I'm not sure if she is eating enough!!
Can anyone help?
