"I've experienced similar situations. My fiance has always dealt with it the way your husband has. Now that I'm getting my numbers back under control, he works more like the diabetes police when I want something that isn't the best for…"

EmilyS replied to perch59's discussion 'whether to go on Victoza or not??' in the group VICTOZA
"Very aware. I've done quite a bit of research concerning Actos and am not thrilled with it. Having members of the medical community in my family and circle of friends, they've all said that Lantus was a better alternative for controlling…"

EmilyS replied to perch59's discussion 'whether to go on Victoza or not??' in the group VICTOZA
"I'm considering Lantus over Actos, which I'm currently on along with metformin, glip and Victoza. Actos can cause congestive heart failure, and, at 36, that's a huge 'do not want' for me. My appetite has been increasing…"

EmilyS replied to perch59's discussion 'whether to go on Victoza or not??' in the group VICTOZA
"Victoza has helped me lose 20 pounds since September 2010. My appetite has been curbed. My numbers didn't change much, but the weight loss was crucial to getting back under control after a steady and gradual rise in my fasting and A1c. I'd…"

Friday replied to EmilyS's discussion 'How long for any BS changes?' in the group VICTOZA
"My numbers began dropping immediately... from 180s fasting, gradually dropping to this am's fasting number of 85.  I'm pretty pleased overall.  The other numbers are also dropping, but my 1 and 2 hr pps are still higher…"

sophiaofthrace replied to EmilyS's discussion 'How long for any BS changes?' in the group VICTOZA
"My numbers were more often in the target range fairly soon, but I didn't see a reduction in my insulin use until I had been on the 1.2 dose for 2 or 3 weeks (except for the amount attributed to eating less). I had to reduce my insulin to carb…"

sophiaofthrace replied to EmilyS's discussion 'How long for any BS changes?' in the group VICTOZA
"It may have to do with timing. The peak after you eat may be later and that's why you are having higher sugars. Look for a pattern. Some people are having peaks 3-4 hours after they eat, and if they bolus before meals the bolus doesn't…"

alimar replied to EmilyS's discussion 'How long for any BS changes?' in the group VICTOZA
"Things are starting to settle down 2.5 weeks in, although I got a really high reading last week (32 - oh, dear!) but now they're anything between 8 and 13 - still a bit on the high side, but heading in the right direction. The only problem…"
