I had been on just diet and met, but, after ten years that just wasn't working well. I asked Dr. about insulin. He didn't like that possibility and put me on Diamicron three weeks ago. I found Tudiabetes, and Dr. B's 'Diabetes Solution' around the same time. I didn't like what I'd read about Diamicron and again asked about insulin; Dr. offered to put me on Vitoza. I got the script and the bill today; I'd been expecting to pay about $50.00 per month.
Right now my numbers are much improved, and Dr. thinks the diamicron is a real success. He wants me to have 60 - 70 grams of carbs per meal. I haven't been consuming that many for years, and had just went down to about 30 per day! If I mention the term, 'low-carb' around him he gets all twitchy! My biggest problem right now is that 'dawn phenom' thing, and I'm finding my numbers rising substantially between 'jammies & nappies', & 'Rise n' Shine'!
Thanks for the info; I'll quizz my pharmicist as to how many pens I would be expecting. If I get three, and at 1.2 that would last a month and a half, it might be plausible. Still, I do have to discuss it with my Bride.
