has anyone been on this before? if so how good is it?
I was finally controlled and off all insulin and one oral medication after 4 years! Now unable to get it, i am way out of control again. Anyone else having issues getting it?
Hello, Is anyone taking trulicity. Any side effects? I have a prescription for it, but reading about what it could cause has me worried. Also, if you are allergic to it you have a week's worth in your system.
Thanks for the info.
We tend to lump things together.
At first there was just Juvenile Diabetes or Sugar Diabetes.
Then (they) renamed them to Type 1 and Type 2.
About 20 years ago the terms Type 1.5 (which later was renamed LADA) and Type 3 (Diabetes with Diabetes Dementia - but that term is still not fully accepted yet) were added.
But is Type 2 simply Type 2?
The answer is NO. Not all Type 2's are the same and we can be "sub-grouped".
Here is the recognized "sub-types" of Type 2:

@A DiabetesTeam Member I hadn't heard that at all so I just took a look (I have access to a few "libraries" of studies).
The most current "published" study I could find was released in 2018 and it… read more
I already have IBS and the daily struggle of living with lower GI misery. What are the odds this medicine is not going to cause me more pain and suffering???
It seems that people I know who take Jardiance and Victoza and Trulicity seem to be able to eat more carbs than people just taking metformin or drugs like glipizide. Do these drugs allow you to eat more carbs and still keep your blood glucose in check?
No rather not take pills but know I have too. When I started I took metformin it made me sick
Yes, I am
My insurance has decided not to cover my rybellsus. No skin off my back really.. but now my Dr wants to see if the insurance company will cover either of the above mentioned scripts.. I am not fond of the side effects from either. I had taken the inovokana but ended up with yeast infections every month.. esp right before my period. Sorry guys that is on my team if it's TMI.
The jardiance has ten side effects.. they said it was tested more in t1 than t2. But I am not fond of the side effects..… read more
@grahmlamb new Dr since my old doctor retired last year. But should still be in my chart.. and why i quit taking it..
I asked my Doc about Ozempic he thought it would be a good idea, but my insurance company and prescription assistance turned it down due to a shortage of the drug, they suggested Trulicity. So Now I am on Trulicity, and they swapped my Soliqua for Lantus, I'm on Faxiga AND Glipizide and Humalog. I'm lucky I can stand, I am nauseas all the time, I get a headache right after my Trulicity injection, I get really dizzy too (bran fog anyone?)
Question: What is the difference between Ozempic and T… read more
@A DiabetesTeam Member I started at the higher dose and it hasn't gotten easier, but I manage it better, it's really bad the first day and by day three the symptoms tapper to an annoyance. The… read more
I now suffer from a significant amount of insomnia. It seems to be getting worse and I a. now getting a poor response to traditional prescription sleep medication. Is it possible that my melatonin levels and my magnesium levels have been decreased due to my insulin analog therapies?
I tried over the counter combination of melatonin plus magnesium therapy and this seems to be improving my sleep quality and duration over the past 3 nights.
Well booked for my sleep study tonight. Interesting to see why I'm not sleeping at nights. So here goes...
