    I am on Actos also....have been for 3 years. Have not gained weight with it tho I have read that the tops of the arms is a place that fat is stored for some while on it. It has been keeping my Ha1c in the 6's. Can't help with the insulin question tho...

  • Re: esophogus spasms after colonoscopy?

    Thanks everyone for the responses. I have not had anymore spasms. I do chew gum regularly. A doctor friend that visited this summer told me that it could be my gall bladder? My body is about back to normal from the test. Yeah it has been 3 months. One area that is not the same is I have bowel movements way to frequently now. It will be a looooong time

It was on TV on the World news in and weekly news magazines....

    Hello All and Happy Summer: I have a question for you all regarding my colonoscopy this was my first and I am 59. No polyps!
