I have completed 7 weeks and blood sugar has dropped significantly. BS has dropped from 280 average morning test to 170 average. I take it with Metformin.

Due to the fact that I was extremely nauseated all of the time with weekly injections, my doctor decided to try injections every 10 days. It has been a great compromise! I still have ...

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.
