Have not lost pounds, however I have lost inches. Went down one bra size since the 1.5 months I have been on it. Pants need to pulled up more often! Did not have any stomach troubles, which is good, since I have IBS also. I first had a fear of injections, but with the fineness of the BD needles, I barely feel anything. Highly recommend type 2 patients try this if the A1C test is over 7.
