Topic: RE: Long term results on Victoza?

Hi,
I have been on Victoza a few years. Initially it helped me lose some weight, and the side effects do pass. I find if I forget to take it a few days I can get tired, headaches, etc. I shouldn't forget. It is a good medication. I have maintained a solid 5-6 A1C while on it, so it is doing its job.

It's not a miracle drug, but it does fight the disease in a way that makes sense.

Thanks,
Mary

Topic: RE: Is diabetics controllable?

Yes, it is controllable. Taking the medicines religiously is one way of controlling this disease. I also do some natural ways like dieting, doing appropriate exercises, and indulging on some physical activities like household chores and the like.

Topic: RE: Anyone else on Bydureon???

Hello, I have been on Bydureon for over a year and have lost 60 pounds. It took exercise and eating right to get the weight off in combination with the Bydureon. But the greates accomplishment has been that after 25 years of using insulin I am complete off of it and my A1C is 5.8. I have been able to keep the weight off for more than 5 months. Stick with it and the weight will come off.

Good luck

Yes, it's possible, but it depends on the type of diabets. The most common recommendations are improving diet and small increases in activity (sometimes loosing some pounds could give good results), redusing stress level. And don't forget about blood pressure, for most people with diabetes ideal BP is below 140/90.

Diabetes makes us heal slowly. Thats why we got infections. My is packed everyday by a nurse who vists me.

Topic: RE: ?? Healing ??

Hi there, I'm diabetic too. After I had been home for about one week my largest incision started draining a lot. It looked like pus. A few days later it turned green and smelled horrible. I went into the surgeon's office that week. They packed the incision and told me to come back the next week. I also had an appointment previously scheduled and had him look at it. He put me on a strong antibiotic. I scheduled to see him the next week as well. The surgeon's nurse told me it was "normal" and "happens a lot". I didn't believe her. I was in so much pain that I had to continue taking oxycodone. I was in pain for 4 weeks post-op. My incision is getting better at 6 weeks post-op but I'm re-packing it every day and it hasn't yet healed. I researched and read that there's a 10-15% possibility of this happening. So, obviously "all the time"vs. 10-15% doesn't mesh. Perhaps it's because of the diabetes...
