"Thanks everyone for your replys. When I follow a low carb diet and exercise, I am able to reduce my weight a bit and the numbers fall into place nicely.. 2 years ago there was a weight competition at work, I was able to reduce all numbers…"

"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…"

"I'm sure you're aware that Lantus (slow release insulin) is not a replacement for Actos (pioglitazone). My concern about actos is the numerous investigations about its relationship to bladder cancer and congestive heart failure going on.…"

"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…"

"Let me ask you, what kind of diet and exercise regime have you been following? Has a low carb diet helped you? Byetta and Victoza can help you tolerate a few carbs and can reduce your appetite, but if you are diabetic and eating a high carb diet,…"

"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…"
