I started about a month ago on Byetta 5mcg twice a day. I’m also on 1000 metformin twice a day. The only thing I see the Byetta doing for me is the side effect of losing weight. I’ve lost 12 lbs since I started. When I started my BS averaged about 280. Now they are down to about 220. A week ago I started the 10mcg twice a day. I’m still about 220. I am counting carbs and I usually keep them under 70g a day. I’m also using my treadmill, but probably not as much as I should. I guess my understanding of Byetta was that it would drop my sugars almost immediatly. This hasen’t happened and I’m trying so hard. Did anyone else have a problem with getting the sugars to lower in the beginning?
