Glad I can give you my experience using Symlin. I started on it in early October 2009 and I take 3 shots a day before each meal. I can say it has really helped me get control of my diabetes. It just one of the components that has helped me go from a 12.4 to 6.7 in about 15 month.s

In particular, Symlin has greatly reduced the amount of food I intake on a daily basis. What I found is that my food cravings between meals has been basically eliminated. I normally eat three (3) meals a day disgesting an average of 120 carbs on a daily basis. The end result is I am satisfied after each meal. For me not to have that appetite is amazing. Symlin has been the g=biggest factor in getting rid of the 'carb cravings' that would drive my BGs up.

This is my 2nd go around with symlin and aside from the morning nausea, its worked great.

Glad you're having such a positive experience. For me just getting ridding of the empty/pseudo hunger feeling after each meal alone is worth an extra shot! Though it does seem to smooth things out too.
