I know and understand how to titrate when starting something like Victoza - as I'm a former long time Symlin user. But my question is - do T1's reduce insulin intake as one would with Symlin?

I started Victoza two months ago.
I use a CGM, and kept going low.
I reduced my Levemir by 3 points every two nights, until I found the correct amount.

So now with the correct amount of Victoza and Insulin, some days I can get a 24 hour BG reading like below.

Each dot represents five minutes.

Very nice! I'm a Dexcom user as well. I'm on Day 2 of Victoza. Are you T1 or T2?

I dont know if it's true for all of us but in my case I cut my insulin usage in half. Now if I could only get past the continuous sick to my stomach feeling.
