Default Bydureon Anyone?

Is anyone taking Bydureon? Bydureon is an extended release form of Byetta and is injected once a week. What are your experiences with it? I occasionally still get nausea (taking it 4 months) and have the obligatory lumps. Do they EVER go away? I swear I still have my first one, lol. How do you feel about the thryroid cancer and pancreatitis warnings? I am considering asking my doctor to change meds but it, along with Actos, seems to be working.

When I want more information about a diabetic drug, I go to blood sugar 101 because I know the information there is reliable. Here is a link where Bydureon is discussed.

Byetta, Bydureon, and Victoza

Here is another bs101 link about Actos:

You would be much better off if you tell your doc you want to drop those meds, then ask for Metformin and follow the low carb/high fat way of eating.

Metformin was the first drug I was put on but, to put it politely, suffered from gastric distress. I have heard that Metformin XR has relieved those symptoms in many and plan on asking the doc about it next visit.

My approach is to avoid ANY meds if I can possibly help it. Eating LC/HF has kept me from needing anything else to manage my diabetes, my cholesterol, my blood pressure, my IBS, and many other more subtle issues.

That is not to say that if one needs help with BG control, then one needs it - but if it were me, I'd go on met. and use insulin.
