thought I would add this in over here as well...many in the DOC were asking on an update...
for those who have been asking...2 weeks, 2 days using victoza (GLP-1 analogue), once daily shot...FDA approved for type 2's but I'm using off label as a type 1...
little bit of nausea to work through, tiredness...head-achy at times...going into the 3rd week will start using the highest dose ...takes 2-4 weeks to push through minor side effects...does make me feel fuller, takes constant tummy grumbles away...between getting back to eating well, exercise have lost about 10lbs in 2 weeks
basal rate tad down, using a set carb per meal w/combo bolus, lowered insulin use by approx 25% or so...and working with a good doctor is helping me with my pump settings which made a difference in numbers as well ...
on my meter average
90 days 213
60 days 210
30 days 175
14 days 157
7 days 149
Getting there =) ...back in the game!
