Hi, nice to meet you. There are quite a few symlin users here. Check out Administrator Scott, who has mentioned nice weight loss and better A1Cs. I keep thinking about symlin, but haven't gone there yet. I think I'm going to get a cgm first and see how I do with that.

Glad to do it!!! We all need someone at these times. Me? I've been a Type 1 since I was 10 years old and now I'm 47. YOU CAN DO THIS! My husband married me knowing I was a Type 1 and now we have a Type 1 daughter who is the mom to all 3 kids you see in my pics. Those are my grandkids! The baby will turn 5 months old on the 19th! My other 2 granddaughters are 3 1/2 (almost 4 ) and the other one turned 2 in April!
