Works for me. Lost 20 pounds, HbA1C down, appetite down. Injection is a different than insulin since the consistency is thick, but not a big deal.

Amen to what Kansas Dad said about having to discontinue Victoza due to insurance change! I have been an insulin-dependent Type 2 diabetic for 20 years.

I take bydureon along with my ivokana and metformin. I have lost about 20lbs. Taking the shot once a week can be painful, but any needle is going to sting. I take it in my stomach.
