    I had been taking Victoza for years and was very happy with it and my blood sugar levels were vey good. My blue Cross insurance said they would no longer cover Victoza as of Jan 2014 and so my dr put me on Bydureon. I am on my 6th shot. My BS levels have gone from 130 to 180 and higher.

    I figured out how to avoid the lumps! I didn't get the lump the first time I injected with a nurse, but did the next 6 times until I carefully reread the instructions again. The instructions say that if you wait too long to take the shot after injecting, the needle will get clogged. I didn't think I was waiting too long, but did notice it would be hard to push in sometimes. Now, if I injec ... Show Full Comment

    My doctor recommended bydureon for me because I was having trouble maintaining my weight with my previous regimen of Actos, Janumet, and Glimeperide. My AiC was 6.8 and my readings were usually always under 150. When I switched to bydureon (along with Metformin and Glimeperide) my readings shot to over 200. I did 6 weeks of injections, but the readings never came down. I also experienced the lumps ... Show Full Comment

    I am 61 and have been diabetic for 11 yrs. I am on Insulin and Metformin. I started on bydureon in Sept, because my A1c has always been around 8. This drug has greatly lowered my Blood suger levels, and my last A1c was 7.1. Yes, the large needle hurts and yes I do have nausea, but the outcome is worth it. I have also lost 15 lbs yahoo! I'm expecting even better A1cs in the future, and an addi ... Show Full Comment
