anyone here can email me at mulesspain@gmail.com and I'm happy to chat here. Despite my age I am a Bass Guitarist, I restore guitars and basses from rubbish to a fully working instrument. I am a mule fanatic and love horses. I am retired but my site is still up if you wanna read about mules. www.mulesspain.com
I am not totaly fixated on my Type 2 although untill I joined this group my sygar was out of control. It was this group that gave me the the information and courage to argue with my doctors.

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.
