I am hearing a lot about this new drug for diabetics called Symlin. I first heard about it from one of my diabuddies, but wasn’t sure of how I felt about it right away. Then we had another group meeting and another diabetic is now going to go on Symlin. I decided to look more into it. Apparently, this new drug helps you to gain better control of your glucose levels and also helps the promotion of weight loss....

I think Symlin was introduced to the US market before 2009. It is synthetic amylin that is part of the natural insulin production we have lost. It can help to reduce after meal spikes by slowing the digestion down. But the right dosage is hard to find depending on the correct orchestration of insulin action and digestive action. It is not recommendable for people with digestive problems. Minor side effects like nausea, vomiting, tiredness, and upset stomach are quite common in the first weeks. Maybe it is worth the trouble maybe not. Let us know!
