In 1984 I had a quintuple bypass, and had no issues at all until I was diagnosed with Type 2 in 1996. was given glyburide, and it was ok for years, in 2004 added metformin which only made it worse, and in January 2005 started Lantus. In 2007, Byetta was added.In 2011 my Lantus was lowered and Novalog was added. My last 2 A1C's were 6.2 and 5.8.
Oops, forgot to mention the triple bypass in 2002, which theoretically was caused by Vioxx, given for a bad back. A settlement fro Merck payed for my 'new' house in Maryland,
Now, I also have other issues, primarily the loss of my wife of 41 1/2 years on July 4, 2008.
I have a few other relatively minor medical issues, like a bad back that was, caused by polio back in 1944. And an ankle that was surgically repaired in 1948 and and was fused in 2009 due to the fact that the bones in my ankle were collapsing. But I get around. An plan to continue doing so until at least both of my grandchildren are married. They are 11 and 9 and are pretty little girls that live in Maryland, where I moved in 2010.
