    Week three - my legs are swelling and are achy. Was nauseous and dizzy at first but that has gotten better. Calling the doctor about my legs. Something just doesn't seem right.

    I am taking my 3rd injection tomorrow. Have been checking my sugar every morning and evening and have not seen a significant drop in numbers yet. Hope it kicks in soon. Dr. says it takes 3 or 4 weeks to see a difference. Along with this I also take 4 metformin tablets each day. Have dropped 10 lbs thought so that is a plus
