I am taking Byetta (20mcg), metformin (2000 mgs), actos (30 mg). I work nights for right now. I am still having problems reaching the magic number of below 120 for my doctor to be happy. I did lose 20 pounds!!
I hate taking the meds. Metformin gives me GI track problems. Byetta makes gives me unpredictable nausea. Actos has caused some side effects too.
I am really wondering if I should ask to go on insulin. My job is stressful and the night shift does cause my levels to flucuate. A guy that was diagnonsed a month before me was put on insulin from the start and loves it. I have guy at my job who has been T2 for over 10 years. He told me told me to stay on the meds for as long as possible.
Can anybody give me any feed back on this???
