Humalog Mix 75/25

Humalog Mix 75/25

I am on Humalog 25 Mix and reading that it may cause heart failure ? Is this true ? What are the symptoms to look for ? Cause whenever an ECG is done so far I've been told it is 'clear'. Like, is there a heart attack waiting to happen ? On ECG what is the cause of an alarm ? Is it the excess plaque ? I'm told by my doc that certain amount of plaque should be there. Is there a boundary measure for plaque that should be there ? So confused of different statements being told to me each time that… read more

Why Is Ozempic Becoming The Most Popularly Prescribed 2nd Tier Treatment For Type 2?

Why Is Ozempic Becoming The Most Popularly Prescribed 2nd Tier Treatment For Type 2?

You can’t watch a TV show without seeing Ozempic or Rybelsus commercials.

So why the big marketing push?

They both belong to the class called GLP-1 Agonists which include Trulicity and Victoza.

The early versions first hit the market in 2006 (Byetta and Bydureon).

Along the way the effectiveness/utility was improved with Victoza (2010), Trulicity (2014), Ozempic (2017) and finally Rybelsus (2020).

Being so "new" none are available as a generic.

Despite a “black box warning” about Thyroid… read more

Weight Gain On Insulin

Weight Gain On Insulin

Has anyone had problems with weight gain on insulin (I take Tresiba)? My doctors said it is an unfortunate side effect of insulin. I work out at the gym 3-4 times a week and still gained weight. Have been watching what I eat and mostly drinking water but still gaining instead of losing or maintaining. Any tips would be appreciated.

Did The Doc Tell You That You Had High Triglycerides At The Same Time You Got Your Type 2 Diagnosis?

Did The Doc Tell You That You Had High Triglycerides At The Same Time You Got Your Type 2 Diagnosis?

Most of us were "misdiagnosed".

Ok, not really, but rather our "condition" was "mislabeled".

Fully 80% of Type 2 Diabetics actually have a condition called Metabolic Syndrome.

That is an (umbrella) disorder that is a (collection) of diseases or conditions with Type 2 being the one that seems to get all the attention and strike the most fear.

But, again, most of us didn't simply get the "You have Diabetes" talk because the Doc may have muttered about High Cholesterol, Low Good Cholesterol… read more

What's Your A1C Right Now?

What's Your A1C Right Now?

I got mine done today, it was 9.8 I was in shock, my morning readings are good always around 100's and the last month especially I had to lower insulin units because I would wake up in the 60's, I will have a lab test result in a week where blood was drawn, today it was done at a research clinic where they only pricked my finger, so I will wait for the other ones to have a better picture, the only consolation in all this is that my previous one was above 11 and I've taken action in changing my… read more
