Would You Change Doctors/specialists

Would You Change Doctors/specialists

So I live in canada and am type 2 diabetic and am thinking of discontinuing with my diabetes specialist. I have to travel over an hour by bus for a 10 minute appointment where even if my A1C's went down a tiny bit i only get "thats still not good Callie".

Januvia?

Januvia?

I was diagnosed with Type 2 a year ago. Doctor started me out on Metformin. In that period of time the dose got up to 2500 once a day, with Victoza added. I was so sick and fatigued I could barely get out of bed everyday. I kept telling my doctor about the fatigue, vomiting, he didn't change my meds. I found another doctor who recognized my adverse reactions to the drugs, and took me off of them.. Now I am on 100 mg of Januvia daily... so far no bad side affects. My AIC is 5.8. Is anyone else on… read more
