Does someone on this platform have experience with diabetes due to high Anti GAD Antibodies

Was anyone successful in treating/reversing this… read more
My periodic A1C results are good, but my symptoms eg Neuropathy and Fatigue getting worse
Valid question and one that in particular the newly diagnosed may ask.

But that didn't explain it all and in particular the number of "under 18's"… read more
Has anyone found that gliperide along with Byetta and Metformin lowers their sugar to a dangerous low? My Endocrinologist just started me on Gliperide due to my A1c being at 8. I've had several very low episodes, I did contact the Dr. And I've been directed to cut the pill in half. Still my numbers are running low for me. Thank you
You can’t watch a TV show without seeing Ozempic or Rybelsus commercials.
So why the big marketing push?
The early versions first hit the market in 2006 (Byetta and Bydureon).
Being so "new" none are available as a generic.
Despite a “black box warning” about Thyroid… read more
