Hi Samnatha like you I take victoza 0.6mg per day back at doctors in 4 weeks it seems to be doing me some good but I guess 160-180 units of insulin a day is not a good thing as I found out, feel much better since cutting my dosage of insulin down to 100 units per day, hope it works for you best regards Ramundow

Hi Samantha - After seeing a few of your posts, I thought I'd see if you had accessed this site - - this information, and her book, I believe, saved my life.

Thanks for the response on my EMS Alert ICE post. It is good to hear that EMS accross the country is checking for this vital information. Your proof that it is working! Good luck!

I'm looking at the picture of a most adorable little baby!! Is he/she yours? The rest of the family ain't half bad, either!! CUTE!

I would be happy to be your friend. Just like the song on the Golden Girls. Thank you for being my friend.

Speaking of Golden Girls, did you know Bea Arthur died on 4/25? Sad, but she was 89 years old. Rich, full life.

I came back from the hospital after a week-long stay. It's exhausting!!

Look for my blog on the whole experience. It's unbelievable and funny at the same time! I figured it was better to type it once rather than 53 million times!

Good night!
