Started this med about 2 weeks ago, and am not sure if this is for me. I stick to a diet, take prescribed meds, but my readings have been 167 or higher.

I switched from Byetta to Bydureon two nights ago and have been hungry ever since. With Byetta, I was hungry only in the late afternoon. My readings are also high. Has anyone else experienced a delay in results?

The nausea is a real problem for me. The reason I lost weight was that I couldn't eat much. The inject site STILL has itching and lumps in spite of the fact that I started in my abdomen a month ago and it's still hard, red and itching.

I was prescribed this medication for my newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetes. I was unable to take Metformin (too many GI issues) and my doctor thought this medication would help me lose weight and bring my glucose levels down. It has done both, although the weight loss has been due to a total lack of appetite since I began the medicine. On the whole, I am happy with the weekly option and plan to conti ...
