Going to try victoza soon and going to give feedback for all of you

Posted on July 29, 2012 at 1:13pm 1 Comment

So i am going to try Victoza and when i do , i will write some feedback
I work in Panama Rep. of Panama now and they don't have it here. Going to call the Victoza tomorrow and ask if they sell it in near countries such as Colombia. Since me flying to the usa and getting a script is going to be more harder that just going to the pharmacy south america were they just give it to you more easily.

Help / i notice that without a basal dose after a few hours my blood sugar stay the same?

Posted on June 24, 2012 at 8:24pm 6 Comments

Example: i take my Lantus at night. i usually take it around 11 pm. However, once in a while on weekends i forget or i take late. So last night i forgot to take it and Blood sugar before sleeping was 80ish, the i sleep until 1 pm ( yeah i know.. too much) and i woke up with 87ish.

So i have been with out Lantus for so many hours and my blood sugar stayed the same and did not spike. I have noticed this already a couple of times. Please enlighten me because this does not make much…
