I know i’ve been kinda M.I.A for a little while, i have alot of things going on right now, but i wanted to drop by and tell you guys an update.
I went to the dr. yesterday after not taking my medications for about 3 weeks… i know thats bad but i kinda slipped into the attitude again that if i dont see it its not there, i wasnt checking my sugars either. I was just being stupid…
well when i was taking my medication i was making some progress, i was losing weight and my sugar levels were coming down slowly, i think i was in the mid 200’s.
Well when i went to the dr. yesterday he was upset that my sugar levels were in the high 300’s … were talking like 381 status… so he wasnt to happy… on top of that i gained 4 pounds and i feel all sluggish and tired.
So we talked he wanted to immediately put me on insulin and i wasnt to keen on that idea so he told me about byetta and how i’d have to inject myself twice a day and make sure i eat within the 60 mins. At first i was really unsure and then he said it also might help me lose weight, so i said okay ill try it.>>>>> anything to lose weight… right??? <<<<<
so he gave me 1000 mg of metformin 2x’s a day … 10mg glipizide 2x’s a day and 5mg of byetta injected 2x’s a day… when i picked up all of my medication at the pharmacy yestrday it hit me… i was like damn im in sorry shape… and i felt like a drug dealer… they put all of my medication n needles in this big brown shopping bag…
so now im on byetta todays my first day… my sugar this morning was 381 again… so i hope i lose weight and get my sugars under control… anyone with experience on byetta… can u share any tips or your experiences???
Thanks. take care ,
