  • Re: Levemir & Byetta

    I found that by losing 9 pounds i am no longer on Byetta or levemir. I am now just doing glimipiride and metformin. I am 5'9" and now weigh 156 and used to weigh 165. Being thin and light has its benefits

    i dont believe there are any risks to taking both. My doctor prescribes it. in 2010/2011 i was in a clinical program testing the use of both. The results were positive. no incidents of hypoclycemia, reduced h a1c.

    I still take Levemir and byetta and metformin successfully. Along with regular exercise and healthy eating i maintain great control. If you have any questions feel free to ask me. I strongly advocate this regimen for the appropriate diabetic. Joel Steinberg

    What is your HA1c. This will tell you how effective your control is. What meds,if any are you taking?Perhaps you need to be taking something like byetta and/or levemir and get in an exercise program. My numbers are dramatically better with these meds, exercise, and taking a general, ballpark accounting of my daily carbs. My HAic is 5.5 on this program

    i never get nautious anymore from byetta. I take it within 15 to 20 minutes of eating.

    As i mentioned below, i dont think there is any risk as long as you get the units right and don't get low blood sugar too much.

  • Re: Levemir & Byetta

    That is a very good question. The short answer is no problem at all. However, for the first 3 months of the clinical program i took only levemir and by the end i was up to, i think 78 units. Then i started taking byetta along with it, and i did experience some night time only episodes of hypoglycemia. We gradually eliminated glimipiride and lowered

    I am now on levemir 72 units once a day, 10mcg of byetta twice a day, and metformin I started the byetta 3 weeks ago, after 12 weeks of levemir. I now have perfect control. H A1C is now down to 6.5 and going down. This is quite different than HA1c of 9.3 in January.i no longer have any blood sugar tests over 200. Thank you medstar for this great clinical

    I am finding that the addition of byetta to my my daily dosage of 68 units of levemir is quite effective. My post meal blood glucose is substantially under control and my fasting glucose is usually in the 80's.i will soon be moving from 5mcg to 10 mcg of byetta.I have already cut in half my daily dose of glimipiride and expect to eliminate it completely
