Hello all, any one taking victoza and metformin?

Comment by Vicky on April 4, 2013 at 12:27pm

Hi there, my son is 13 years and he was diagnosed with type one diabetes end of Jan. We managed to get his insulin/blood count under control but recently he has been having lots of "hypos" and so I have reduced his insulin intake. I think this may be the "honeymoon period" and was wondering how long this will go on for? His blood count levels are now between 5 and 7 and I have reduced his Novorapid insulin from 9ml slowly between 6ml and 7ml, depending on his blood count before food. He has done really well this Easter although it has been a huge change for him - we are so proud with him how he has been able to cope with this in such a small space of time. Any advice would be welcome, thank you.

Hi everyone. It doesn't seem very busy in here but always good to hear from people who understand it! I got diagnosed Jan 2010 and have been keeping things under control OK with diet and metformin. Currently HbA1c is 5.2%. However, any tips on how to keep it up year after year would be good. And any ideas for low-carb savoury snacks?
