I think Symlin was introduced to the US market before 2009. It is synthetic amylin that is part of the natural insulin production we have lost. It can help to reduce after meal spikes by slowing the digestion down. But the right dosage is hard to find depending on the correct orchestration of insulin action and digestive action. It is not recommendable for people with digestive problems. Minor side effects like nausea, vomiting, tiredness, and upset stomach are quite common in the first weeks. Maybe it is worth the trouble maybe not. Let us know!
