    I have Type 2 For Thanksgiving, my attitude has always been, "Perfect control is not gonna happen today, but that doesn't mean I go crazy on carbs. A couple of things are non-negotiable - I am going to have SOME stuffing and SOME pecan pie - the all-important question is 'how much'? Over the years the answer to 'how much' has

  • Re: A pasta lovers 7 point guide to living with diabetes

    One of the "tricks" I like to play on myself is to line the pasta bowl with a layer of steamed or sauteed vegetables, eg broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, peppers and onions, and "finish" filling the bowl with pasta. Less pasta fits in the bowl when the noncarb stuff goes in first. And don't forget the carbs in the canned/jarred

    Spirit: I don't call my walk the dessert, I call it my medicine. I tell my 7 year old that to take care of myself I have to eat right and take my medicine, ie, the pills, the shot and the walk. John

    Concerned about Byetta? Not terribly. I'm no scientist, but I am somewhat proficient in the English language. The FDA press release does NOT say that Byetta CAUSES problems with kidney function, only that 78 people who take Byetta are reported to have had such problems.

    I'm also on Byetta and metformin, but I'm curious how I would do without the metformin. Gotta keep the A1C down or I won't even think about giving up the metformin. John

  • Byetta news

    Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 On October 30, the FDA approved BYETTA as a stand-alone medication along with diet and exercise. My endo previously mentioned the possibility that I could stop taking metformin since Byetta has helped me so much (A1C down to 5.8). Wonder how long it will take the insurance company to catch up and

    Texanlin: I take metformin (1000 mg twice per day) and Byetta, but not glyburide. I take metformin with breakfast and dinner. A couple of weeks ago I asked my endo if I should change when I take metformin (I was thinking that since I take no BG medication before lunch, perhaps taking metformin before lunch would lower my post-lunch BG, which is still
