Basaglar Vs Lantus

Things in general have been good. Got my A1c from 13.5 to 5.8 in 6 months.

Anyone On Victoza?

Anyone On Victoza?

What are your pros and cons? Just started it last week - I've gotten off of insulin (Basaglar) and am now taking 1.2 of Victoza and 1000mg of Metformnin 2x daily.

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

I take Victoza. I also take Lantus at night. The only thing besides losing weight woth the Victoza is Nausea or throwing up. Otherwise it works great.

Got put on this since Medicaid stopped covering Levemir. Has anyone noticed their levels not staying controlled as before? Mine seem higher or lower and not as on target as before and my neuropathy has worsened. Just curious.
