I have a question about non-insulin treatments. I have an appointment with my 3rd endo this Wednesday. The 2nd endo had mentioned either Victoza or insulin as possible treatment options. However, I was just reading on drugs.com that if a person has digestive issues, Victoza cannot be taken.
I have had issues in the past with hiatal hernia, GERD, and gastritis to the point of taking medications. I have been able to control my digestive problems now with diet and meditation; however, I do occasionally still have flares. The source was combination of work stress, RA medications, and my digestive system making too much stomach acid.
So, based on my past medical history, would Victoza or Byetta probably be off the table as viable medications for my diabetes?
