I’ve been having control issues - by that, I mean eating issues, which leads to blood sugar control issues. I’ve been lax, eating what I want when I want. I always take insulin, but let’s just say my CGM readouts for the past several months have been ‘mountainous’, perhaps even ‘Himalayan’.
Almost a week ago, I asked my endo for Victoza, and she was happy to give me some. Day 1 was fine. Days 2 and 3 I felt like death warmed up (nauseous and exhausted). Now I’m on Day 6 and I am loving that CGM line. Partly because my food intake is so reduced - I’m just not hungry/excited to eat. I haven’t stepped on the scale yet, but I must be down.
I haven’t even begun a real dose yet (you start at a half-dose for a week, then go up), but it seems like I’m having pretty awesome results. I haven’t had scary lows (looking at you Symlin).
So - I was wondering what others experiences with it are - anyone been on it for quite some time want to share their experience?
