Hi guys. I was wondering if any of you that take Victoza pen for type 2 have side effects if so what are they. I have suffered sore throat sinus trouble cold and flu symptoms since October I blamed flu jab which I got in October but it can't be that after all this time it must be the Victoza. Any help appreciated thank you
I saw an ad from the Canadian Cancer Society reminding people who have stayed mostly cooped up for the past 2 years to get into their Doctors and get a check-up.
During the pandemic the diagnosed rates of Cancer dropped to historic lows. Not because people weren't getting it but rather because they were not getting checked and ultimately diagnosed so the worry is some will be later stage when it is caught and their odds of a decent outcome may be lost.
Anyhow, they noted that in 2022 they… read more
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
I have gained 25 plus pounds since start of Victoza in November of 2017. Plus my menstral cycle stopped. Anyone else have these side effects?
I find that I am bruising at my injection sites on my hips and stomach. I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem. I spoke to my diabetes nurse about this and they said that it was abnormal and that most people don't bruise or bleed. There was no explanation to this.
I currently don’t need or take and diabetes meds so I have the luxury, at least for the moment to consider what I will do, or ask for or ask about when that time comes.
I “expect” that one day I will need the help. I will no longer, despite my best efforts, will be able to do it on my own
I will NOT see that as some failure on my part. I will not resist. In fact it is quite likely that I will ask about starting medication long before the Doc suggests it - control is more important then pride.
My insurance has decided to make Victoza non-formulary so I'm having to switch to Bydureon. Is anyone using this? I've only been on Victoza for 5 mos and was doing pretty good with it, tho my morning nos have increased slightly. I've been able to decrease Lantus to just 6 units at bedtime and eliminate Novalog altogether. Did not lose any weight but still liked this med. I wish ns companies would not mess with what meds peoe can take.
Valid question and one that in particular the newly diagnosed may ask.
There can be a few reasons why a Type 2 would want to treat "without meds".
Perhaps it's the feeling to taking control of their own destiny, or just utter hate of Big Pharma (or little pharma); worries about side effects for meds, whatever.
But if you are even considering going down the path to "sans medication" you should really be aware of what you are proposing that you are going to get into.
