I was on Avandia along with shots several years ago before starting my current regeme. I found that the avandia worked very well for me in keeping my sugars consistent. Since they have removed the product from distribution the number of units that I am taking on a daily basis has skyrocketed to the point that I am concerned. My Dr says that there is nothing to worry about. I cannot tell if my current dosage is a result of age or of dropping avandia. I currently take 2 shots of lantus, 34 units each, and 4 shots of NovoRapid at 38 units each, and I still have problems getting my average glucose count below 9 (I don't know the equivalent in the American system). That is a total of 220 units a day.
I have started Januvia and Lantus recently. Januvia is a new drug and I am not sure what the long term effects that are associated with this new medication. Don't feel bad I will have to increase my insulin intake, due to my numbers bouning around.
I was diagnosed onto 18u lantus and 3 shots novorapid 18u each. I folowed the standard NHS script for about 18 month until I started to read about now 15 months later by going lo carb, I'm "artificial insulin" free on half a tab of gliclazide per day So my specialist sure earned his freebies from the reps on me! Bitter? Me? No! -just lost my LGV/ minibus licences cos i was on insulin as they were too lazy/incompetent to do their job!
