I am a Diabetic...Does any other diabetic take Symlin?
 
I am a Diabetic...Does any other diabetic take Symlin?

I am a type 2 diabetic, and I already take Novolog and Levemir (both insulin).

Now my doctor wants to add Symlin to my regimen, but I've only heard about the dangerous side effects of Symlin (non-insulin injection, only FDA-approved in 2005). The Symlin websites are only offering scary info.

Anyone? :(

Visit with your Dr. about your concerns. Maybe suggest Metformin. I also am on Levemir and Novolog, and Metformin...I have had no problems with it at all. Although what works for one may not work for another....
Also, I don't know if you have been newly Dx or not, but Diabetes is not a death sentence...It is a manageble thing . Don't let it run your life...You can be the one in charge...Not the Dx. Hang in there....
