For all you Type 2 diabetics out there, you know who you are. There is a newer drug on the market you might want to talk to your Doctor about on your next visit. It's called Byetta and it has some very serious side effects, you eat less and you loose weight. :D

Thanks! My doctor told me to lose 70lbs last time I was there. I see him again in two weeks. I'll be sure to mention it. Email me with any other info you have on it.

It's injectable twice a day.

It's derived from Gila monster spit. Hmm, side effects huh?

I need to loose some weight, but am not diabetic (yet). I wonder what would happen if I used it for weight control, other than the obvious death or horrible suffering?
:MM

There is another version being worked on that you will only have to use once a week.

Some non-diabetics are doing just that, it seems to work on them too.



Email me with any other info you have on it.
Check it out here.

No, you thought it and the rest of us are telepathic... Speaking of those who need to drop a few pounds.. Perhaps you should join a gym or something (I'm right behind you... WAY behind you)!

More than just a few if you listen to my Doctor. So far eight pounds, and my sugar readings in the AM are running between 85-105, which would be good for even a non-diabetic. :D

is it healthy to take something that makes you pee away so much weight?

My 2 cents.

From experience, weight plays a big role in controlling Type 2 diabetes.

At over 200 lbs :rolleyes: 3 years ago and limited excercise, my blood sugar in the morning was running 150-170. :eek:

After my "crash and burn" heart attack on 6 December 2003, I lost 50 pounds, excercise at least 5 days a week, watch what I eat, etc., blood sugar in the morning is running 80-85. :) My doctor stopped my diabetes medicine due to my blood sugar going too low. :cool:

Diabetes can be a killer.

Thanks,

Hoover

It appears to be working. Since starting the Byetta I have lost 11 pounds and my A1C went from 8.6 to 7.3. :)

Keep it up, guys. I haven't had problems with diabetes, but I'd had some instances of severe chest pain and numbness in my left arm not very long ago. I let my weight get out of control a couple of years ago, and that's when I started having real problems. After my cardiologist pointed out to me that I was basically walking around with a ticking time bomb in my chest, I got on a strict diet (which is tough for me because I live in a city with over 300 amazing restaurants of all types. I've tried them all.) and exercise routine and have shed over 50 lbs in the past seven weeks. I feel much better now and don't want to quit. Sex is a lot better, too. ;)
