I have been struggling for the last year or so with a treatment plan that just doesn't show any changes. I started on Byetta 10mcg about a year ago along with 500mg of Metformin bid and 2 mg Amaryl bid. My A1C came down 0.2 (WOW) now its 6.1. My sugars range from 115-180. Have not lost any weight with the Byetta.
Have had alot of stress with my husband's company making big paycuts vs layoffs and our new insurance this year is really bad and we pay alot out of pocket, so in turn we hold off going to the DR untill we absolutely have to or they won't refill our meds. I just don't know if the cost of the Byetta is worth the tiny change I have seen.
Between the stress, the aches and pains and some depression, I feel somewhat lost. My 21 yr old son who I love and look forward to the end of the college year so he'll be home,ended up with an internship in Aberdeen,MD about 2 1/2 hrs away.
I just miss him alot.I know I need to exercise more but its hard when everything hurts. My joints are recovering from a bad reaction to Crestor to lower my LDL which did come down from 110 to 81 but not worth the pain I got from the drug side effects.
I guess everyone has their story, I just hope to find someone here who may have found something that helps that I haven't thought of or maybe I'm just doing it all wrong.
