I am taking Victoza in the morning now. I started taking it at night, but nurse said morning may help control eating during day hours better. I have lost 7 pounds!! I was stuck around 153-155 for about 7 months after starting insulin. I weighed 148 today! First time getting to this number in 9 months! I take Tresiba at night and have dropped from 19 units to 10 units currently. Glad to be reducing insulin which caused 25-30 pounds of weight gain in the first month.
I am also feeling less side effects than Trulicity. I have joined the local rec center, swimming 20 laps upped it to 25 laps which is about 7/10 of a mile. Today I walked on treadmill 30 minutes and actually did some weight machines. I am feeling better and lighter. Carrying extra weight is so tiring and I am encouraged to have finally been able to drop some weight. My blood sugars remain great fasting around 100-120 lately. I don’t spike and don’t take any bolus insulin anymore. I hope it continues. I also found a new endo that I will see in November. Happy Weekend to All!!
