Blood sugar is stable, but my A1c was at 5.6 when I started using this 2 months ago. My Dr. Just wants it lower. I have just lost 50 lbs, and Dr. said this would help with weight and lower A1c, too. Maybe, but I have lumps everywhere I have injected the drug, and they itch. One has turned into a bad sore. AND, MY HAIR IS FALLING OUT! No! I'm not kidding. Nothing else has changed in my di ...

I have been on Bydureon for about 4 weeks. My numbers are gradually coming down into the mid 150's. The Doctor (and the Bydureon studies) say that max effectiveness or steady-state occurs around 6 weeks. Side effects are the nodes in my stomach that also itch sometimes (the itching is gradually going away as well. Some nausea.

I have been taking this med for 8 weeks, and have experienced swelling and itching at the injection site. I have had stomach upset while taking this med. I have not see any beneficial reduction of my blood sugars and not have not benefited from any weight loss. Appetite has not changed. I had better results with Byetta and will ask my dr at next visit to go back to Byetta.

I took my 6th dose of Bydureon yesterday. My blood sugars are perfect! The majority of my sugars have been in the 90 to 130 range EVEN AFTER MEALS. I was taking 50 units of Lantis @ night and using Humalog to cover as needed. I am now down to 15 units of Lantis and will probably continue to reduce this slowly. I have not had any bumps or redness or itching. I have had nausea and diminished a ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
After my third shot, the first two shot areas started to itch and a red raised 2" circle showed. The day after the third shot, it also raised and started itching. The sort of itch that keeps you up all night & anti-itch creams do not seem to help. My doctor/nurse was not able to help with an explanation.
