If you are a Trulicity user can you tell me what side effects you have had? I have experienced nausea, having to go to the bathroom 5 times in a row to go #2, a tightening of my stomach area and extreme eyesight changes since starting on Trulicity. The good news: my blood sugars went from over 500 to waking up to blood sugars as low as 151 and although my up close vision has worsened my distance vision has corrected itself to where I don't need glasses.

I have the same issue with my eyes. I was told it's pressure in the eyes due to drastic changes in blood sugar. It happened when my blood sugar went sky high and now that it's dropped like a rock it's happened again. first time lasted about a week. This time it's been 10 days so far. If it doesn't go back soon, I'll be seeing the eye doctor for sure. I'll be off insulin within the next week.
