Hello again. :) I'm in my third week of taking Victoza. At first, I felt totally "off". I still don't feel 100% normal, but I'm feeling a lot better. I still feel a wee bit nauseous, especially at lunch, but not like how strong it was the first week. Even though I still don't feel completely normal, my good numbers make me want to stick it out. I've lost 11 pounds so far, which I am so happy about because all of my weight loss efforts seemed like they were for nothing before Victoza.
1. My TDD of insulin was 22 units - basal and 24 units - bolus
2. I'm taking 1.2
3. For bolus, I'm now taking about one-third less insulin than I had been taking. It almost seems as if I'm only taking my basal now. My basal is the same during the day, but I had to play with my night basal a little.
So far I'm really loving how my numbers are reacting. Normal numbers in the morning are something I never really had! Sadly, my insurance doesn't cover it, but my doctor is going to fight them on that. Hopefully, he will win because my numbers have never been better.
