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.

At my last blood check my sugars had been down with no high peaks, I have lost over 50 lbs. I have had a few low blood sugar moments but was told this could happen so was prepared for them. Overall this has been a very effective treatment for me.

Losing weight fairly quickly (11 pounds). Upset stomach lasts only a couple of weeks. Blood sugar coming under more control. Would like for it to control better. Only been on it for 1.5 months.
