I have been on Byetta for almost a month and I'm not seeing any results. Is this normal? Does it take time to work? I am only on 5ml with 1000mg Metformin, My BS are still up, and not losing much weight. I could use some help!
I have the same problem; almost two months and my numbers are way too high. My doctor doesn't have me on any other orals. Meeting with an Endocrinologist next week to switch to something else. I'm thinking about insulin.
I had the same problem. Byetta just didn't work for me either. I have now been on Victoza for 6 months and it works GREAT. You only take it once a day; in the morning. Plus it causes me to feel full after eating half of what I used to eat. Where I used to eat 2 and sometimes 3 helpings at dinner, now I do good to eat one helping. I have lost almost 40 pounds since last August, and my A1C is down to 5.8. Ask your doctor about it.
I have been on Byetta (plus a load of other meds) for years and it has not helped me lose weight, but that can be from the other meds. My AC1 is always below 7, usually 6.8.My experience is that you must control your diet! you are what you eat, I got my daily glucose reading under control by following the book "The 30 Day Diabetic Cure" In a nut shell you must go on a 12 day sugar free fast, no sweeteners of any kind, no fruit, no fruit juice. Eat lean protein, Veggies, no potatoes, legumes, Dairy, EVOO, nuts, Cinnamon, limit caffeine, drink green tea 3 x day. After 12 days add fruit and only WHOLE GRAINS back into your diet/ No processed foods, steer clear of Soybean oil, hidden sugars. Eat Steel cut oats, barley, Brown Rice, quinoa,
etc, only eat grains that take approx 20minutes of more to cook, quick oats are OUT! If you must eat a sweet, just a taste not a serving, otherwise you may get hooked again. Buy the book, because I just can't educate you on all the traps
