Thanks everyone. Everyone must check this site often. I've never been very good at keeping up with websites, but it's obviouslly time I learn. DM is really not fun and I'm sure chatting with others will help. At the present time, I'm on Met 500 two times daily and taking a Byetta inj. before my largest meal of the day. I was on 1 inject. of Levemur (SP) at night for one week only. I had been sick and sugars were out of control. Dr felt this would stabilize it. It did and I felt so great I was wishing she would leave me on it. No such luck, she put me back on my Metforminl. Guess it must be easier on the body. I was disappointed, but she is the expert, not me. How do you all feel as far as comparing one to the other? I am watching my diet and have lost weight= 14lbs since Christmas.
