"HI Susan...I see you posted this a while ago but I have been seeking another type 1 diabetic who is using Victoza... and was hoping for some advice! My daughter is 16 years old and has type 1 diabetes. She has been on an insulin pump for 11 years.…"
"Hi allNo infections any more - yipee!!! Now wonder if they were anything to do with Victoza at all ...perhaps just unfortunate coincidence! No change in doses and STILL no bloomin weight loss.... no nausea now either tho I have added a Zantac to…"
"I went up to 1.8 last Thursday. I only take total 14u daily now and have lost 9.5 lbs in three weeks. I'm nauseated but it's worth it. I have stomache flu so I'm waiting to see if the nausea goes away when I am better..."
"Oh no! I'm sorry that you have to deal with both of those infections at the same time. :( I wonder if both of the infections are inhibiting your weight loss. Have you talked to your doctor about it? The fatigue is definitely a common side…"
"I'm so happy that your numbers are coming down! :) It was such a great feeling (and still is) when I started seeing my usual random numbers actually be in the normal range. It seems like constipation is one of the more common side effects.…"
"Hi, I started Victoza 5 weeks ago. I'm Type 1(for 25yrs) on a pump for last 6 years ...Taking victoza for weight reasons alone. I started on 0.6 and now this week (week 5) Ive gone up to 1.2. So far I've no weight loss and no reduction of…"

Susan, I seen the endocrinologist, she had me see the nurse educator on Dec 8th where she wants me to keep a month of BS, since I just got off prednisone a couple months ago and my sugars were wacky. So for this next month I will be montoring my BS x's a day. I seen the dietitian today the 11th and were are going over carb counting. I got the call for the aminous (PING) company any my insurance excepted it. Now it a process of waiting for the BS to get done in the middle of Jan. and learning how to use it. I am looking forward to having one..
I am getting train for an aminios pump(PING) I see the nurse on instructions Monday the 8th,blood work with cortsol levels. The on the 11th see a dietian on carb counting. I have to keep a record of my BS befor meals and night time.and 2 hrs after meals and for some reason 3 AM . I have done this except the 3 AM if I up. I can't see much and when I fall asleep I can't wake myself to do that. So theres where I'm at so far.....Keep in touch
Susan, I know a few people on the pump. Each one has a different one. They also all like the pumps they have. Any suggestions? I go to the MD's on November 24th , let me know if you can give me some ideas...
I used Symlin for almost a year, but then quit due to not a lot of benefit and some other issues I was having. As a result of going on the Dex, and watching my post-breakfast number patterns spike, my endo put me back on it for breakfast only. I've been really pleased with that change. I do 0/100 over an hour, and it works well for me.
