Default High Readings with Byetta


I'm having problems posting here so I am trying a post in the form of a reply.
My issue is my BG readings which hover between 10 and 20' ml. I have started using Byetta and 1000 meteor min both twice a day.
My average Bgreading is around 15. Neither the GP nor the specialist are recommending insulin and want to test me in 3 months when I have increased Byetta is
Increased to 10.
Should I be worried about these high readings in terms of strokes etc?

Hello Eyton,

A good website to answer your basic questions on diabetes would be bloodsugar101

I did not have much luck with Byetta -- it also slightly raised my bg levels but I never got to full does because of the nausea
