"My doctor is predicting a weekly shot within about a year or two and he's pretty up on the research. I'm just wondering if a large once-a-week dose might not increase the incidence of nausea. So far, I've had no problems. Doc's…"

"Hi Linda....Oh this sounds very familiar to me. All I can share from my own experience is to make sure you eat enough protein and carb at your meal after a injection. Try to take any medications that are due at least 30 mins before your injection.…"

I think I saw it on the website, but it's not there now. I bet you could write them and ask. It was free. I was taking glucofage (generic metformin?) but my Dr. switched me completely to the pin. I noticed that some people take both.

When you said "pouch" I thought of a fanny pack! Just a thought. We should write them and make a suggestion!

Have a great day.

hmmm. i was never offered a case for my pen. oh well. i am on both metformin, plus byetta. what is the pill form you were taking? i'm not on aol. i'm on yahoo IM and on skype. i like the insulated lunch box thing, except i hate carrying extra stuff. my hands go numb on me at the worst possible times and i drop things. we need to invent an insulated pouch that fits in a purse and goes in the freezer when not in use. oh well, rome wasn't built in a day. we'll figure it out.

that's my problem as well. if i know i'm not going to be home for lunch, i take it before breakfast, but suppertime is when i have the big problem. with the price of gas nowadays, i hate running home just to take a shot before i eat. i'm working on finding something small enough to fit in my purse that will keep it cold enough. i even checked with the pharmacy to see if they knew of anything. nada, zip. i think a travel toothbrush holder will hold the pen and a couple of needles but what to put them into to stay cold. if you figure out something let me know and i'll do the same for you.

Manny could provide more details, but the "Tu" in TuDiabetes is a Spanish prefix, which if I'm not mistaken, is akin to "Your"Diabetes.

Welcome to TuDiabetes, Lynda! Glad you discovered this group and decided to join the TuDiabetes community.

I'm wondering what the "Tu" in "Tu Diabetes" means?
