My doctor put me on Symlin to deal with my post-meal highs. Now I’ve got post-meal highs in the high 200’s and fasting numbers in the 200’s. I’ve split the boluses, stretched the boluses, delayed the boluses, and bolused early. Except for two wicked lows, I’ve seen absolutely no positive effect of this damn drug. It stings like nothing else, and there’s apparently absolutely no benefit for me. I’ve got no nausea, which is a plus, but it also makes me think that the drug just doesn’t work in me.
Does anyone else have any experience with this? It’s just so frustrating. This stupid, inconvenient drug was held up as the fix to all my problems, and it’s making me feel like more of a failure.
I hate you, diabetes.
