i recently began using byetta on the 5mcg for about a month and then i began taking a 10mcg dose. within days of using the 5mcg, my sugars were 90-100 mornings and 80-95 about 5pm. i was really happy. and then i began to use the 10mcg dosage. my sugars have gone up to 145 and some as high as 158 in the mornings and my evenings are up too at 125-140. i’ve changed nothing in my diet. i’m eating the same thing everyday and the same amount. i am also not snacking and drink mainly water. no booze too. i’ve checked and rechecked my 10mcg’s pen to see if it is dispensing the liquid and it is. why are my sugars elevating?
i had several days left on the 5mcg dosage so i used them 2 more times and my sugars went back down. why is that? is it possible that my 10mcg dosage is bad?
My original dose, the 5mcg dose, was a trial dose given to me by my doc. The 10mcg pen was purchased by me at walgreens about 2 weeks ago and it is showing an expiration date of oct 2012.
is it common for my sugars to go back up with this higher dose?
