I'd been on Byetta for about 2 1/2 years. Since starting Bydureon my blood sugar has been quite high. Readings mostly in the 200's. My doctor has increased my Actos from 15 mg to 30 mg per day. It's too soon to tell if there will be an improvement. Taking only one shot a week is great, that way I don't have to watch what time I eat. I hope my sugar levels improve.

I have been on this med for 4 weeks now. At first I had diarrhea pretty bad, but that cleared up at the end of week 2. I still am not real hungry and my sugar levels are getting better. I shoot into my thigh and I have not had any itching, redness or lumps like others seem to be having.

Comment:
I was on Victoza for 2 years with little change in my blood sugar (average BS=190) and became more nauseated with each injection. I have been on Bydureon for 3 months and have seen my blood sugar values drop to normal (average BS=90) for the first time in 7 years. I lost 12 lbs in 3 months and have very little appetite to eat anything other than 3 square meals a day. I have noticed sporatic bouts ... Show Full Comment
