I have a couple of quick questions about Trulicity. I was on 0.75 mg and my endo bumped me up to 1.5 mg because my A1C wasn’t moving from 6.5 and my BG pretty much hangs around 140-150 avg.
I keep telling her my BG is never going to change due to all the rheumatoid arthritis medications I take and my RA is not under control by a long shot. But she’s adamant that she will control it. So now I’m taking 1.5 mg a week Trulicity and I’m still at the same range with my BGs without eating 119 - 136, and after eating 136 - 159. She says I’m not eating correctly, but I am and I stay away from all bread products. She wants my numbers in the 90s.
If I don’t eat for the day my BG sometimes will be around 97 but I am very weak and hungry or it can swing up to 136 without me putting anything in my mouth.
So, is the problem me or the Trulicity not working? I’ve been on it for over almost three months now. And I was on the lower dosage for four months. I’ve tried Metformin, Metformin ER and Januvia. All with no luck at moving my A1C or BGs.
The Trulicity gives me stomach upset, diarrhea, and upper abdominal pain that radiated to my back sometimes–I relieve it with antacids.
My mom (LADA) and her dad (T1) took shots, her mom took pills (T2). But my doctor says I’m Type 2.
