"Thank you so much for your answer. The first and foremost problem I am having with Symlin is the cost. I haven't gotten it yet because it is so expensive. And second, one of the side effects is nausea. I seem to be very sensitive to anything…"

"I have been using Symlin for many years now. It has really helped with the post meal BG spikes. At first I lost 6 pounds which was not good for me but after several months I was able to gain it back. When I first started taking Symlin, I decreased…"

"My wife went on a gonzo shopping trip one day, like 10-3 or something and came home without eating and said "I think I'm having low blood sugar..." so we checked and it was 81, not exactly hypo but sort of slim pickings."

Cute story

My husband and my 6 year old son went for a run the other night. My son is getting ready for wrestling season to start. My husband told me that my son started dragging anchor about halfway through the run and turns to him and says, "Man, my blood sugar is getting low." Now his blood sugar was low the day he was born and I've checked it many times since then and it has never been low. I seriously doubt he would even know what it felt like. I'm guessing he's heard me say it too many times. I…See More

I have been using Symlin for many years now. It has really helped with the post meal BG spikes. At first I lost 6 pounds which was not good for me but after several months I was able to gain it back. When I first started taking Symlin, I decreased my insulin to carb ratio by half. Since then, I have decreased it even more. You must be careful of hypoglycemia after meals at first and that is why the dose adjustment in the mealtime insulin. Let me know if you have any other questions about Symlin.
