Thank you for taking the time to talk to me about your trials with Victoza...It will be 5 weeks this Thursday,,,still no weight loss. though this week I am having terrible gas pains, very bloated belly, face, and hands, and constitpation!! I have cut back on food intake sooo much and am walking 3 miles a day 4 days a week...I think I am going to start taking stool softners and a little gas pill each day. Today I decided to switch to the am shot from the refrigerator...up to this point is has been room temperature before bed...I will keep everyone posted. I find that I am not hungry ever!! As a diabetic, I am stumped at what to do about it...my husband says to eat anyway to keep blood sugar stable. I wish I could just not eat at all. I want to lose weight and get this under control.. I too am not ready to give up, at my 3 month follow up I will ask to go up to the 1.8 dose and see what that does for 3 months and if that does not then I am going to ask for the gastric banding surgery. My doctor said that I could get all the negative health problems under control with weight loss...he wanted to try this first, as surgery is dangerous for diabetics. I was wondering if anyone who reads this can tell me if having a radical hysterectomy with everything removed and in serious menopause has affected their sugars? I read that the nightly hot flashes can cause high morning readings, due to the lack of a good nights sleep.
Once again thanks for talking with me and I wish you the best of luck!! too funny that you say you have the stubborn diabetes, I tell my doctor all the time that I am a high A1C functioning diabetic...I have never had any symptoms of the disease and my eyes have not changed vision in 15 years and my teeth are in great shape...lol
