Bydureon, Anyone On It Or Ever Try It?

Bydureon, Anyone On It Or Ever Try It?

My doctor wants me to start taking Bydureon injections. I haven’t read or heard too many good things from other people who have tried it and the side effects really worry me. Anyone on here currently or previously taken this medication? If so, what was your experience and did it help your diabetes?

Yes, it was ok for me but my insurance didn’t cover it so my doctor put me on something else.

How The Heck Does The Doctor Decide What To Prescribe For Diabetics?

How The Heck Does The Doctor Decide What To Prescribe For Diabetics?

Some may see the Doctor as some all knowing Oracle that uses a crystal ball to decide what prescriptions to write to treat our Type 2 diabetes.

The truth is, unless your diabetes doesn't follow the "rules" and you need the help of an Endocrinologist, they use a "flow chart" that most highschool kids could follow well enough to write the scripts.

Primary/Family Doc's don't even need to know how to spell Diabetes in order to treat it because the worlds leading experts have "written the rules"… 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

Have Any Diabetics Tried The Keto Diet?

Has Anyone Ever Had A Bad Reaction To Insulin?

Has Anyone Ever Had A Bad Reaction To Insulin?

I have recently been placed on insulin to go with my other diabetic medication (metformin, and repaglinide) I have not had one day where I have felt well, he nausea is always overwhelming, and the dizziness as well as some other feelings I can't explain. Is this normal? When I was in the hospital a few years back they gave me insulin and my blood sugar shot higher up than what it was and I became violently ill. My Endo says thats it was given to me incorrectly. Yet I am having a similar reaction… read more

What Kind Of Medication Is Everyone Taking ?

What Kind Of Medication Is Everyone Taking ?

I've been on so many diabetic medications . Nothing is truly working for me
Metformin - did nothing for A1C
Jauamet - gave me low blood sugar too low
Victoza - I loved it but ended in emergency for the pain I was experiencing.
Now I'm on Jardiance I'm not liking it
