Well, it has been a battle this week, but my God is still in control. My Doctor started me on a new medication called byetta, it is an injectable medicine that is suppose to work with my insulin, to keep my blood sugars under control. I take it one hour before my meals, then right before my meal, I take my insulin shot. She said that insulin makes you gain weight, and believe me this is very true. Byetta is suppose to also help you lose weight, which of course made me very happy. The one thing that confused me, was the fact that on the commercials for this new medicine, the people that are taking it, are all on pills for their diabetes. She gave me a video to watch about this medicine, on it the people are all on pills for their diabetes. I am not on pills, I take 4 shots a day. One of the possible side effects from the medicine is nausea, and loss of appetite. Well, I have been sick all week with nausea, stomach cramps, headaches, and really bad chest pains. Yes, I am down from 205 to 203, but is the risk worth it? With 4 heart blockages, when I have severe chest pains, it is a scary thing. So, my husband does not want me to take the byetta anymore. It did lower my blood sugars, but it lowered them too much. I have been getting sick from that too. I am going to continue to try my best to take care of my diabetes, and my heart. With Gods help, I will be successful. Bless you all.
