Default Jardiance seems ok

It appears that the Jardiance, 25mg daily is agreeing with me symptoms wise. I don't have the same urgency to pee as I did with Invokana or Farxiga. And no headaches with it like I did with Farxiga.

My numbers are about the same however so it appears diet needs to be stricter and I need to pull in on the reins. Although just now I took my gbl and it was only 113 after a meal an hour ago!

If it keeps going this way, I'll be a happy camper because insurance pays the most on Jardiance. $102 for 90 days supply.

I don't want to be on this medication, but for the other options right now it's where I need to be.

Thanks,
Gina

Have you considered asking your doctor for insulin rather that these man made drugs? I went on insulin for additional control back in December and it was one of those 'ah ha' moments causing me to reflect 'I should have done this long ago!'

I agree with Steve, we know that insulin is fairly safe to take with years of history by many people using it! Both the fast acting and slow acting work well for most. Everyone is afraid of the needles, but they are relatively painless and not difficult to learn to do.

Many of the drugs offered by healthcare professionals have limited history with very long lists of side effects.

As noted above resist new drugs, consider pressing your doctor for tried and true.....insulin and/or metformin....coupled with good LCHF eating will win the day for most....

Good Luck

Hi Steve,
As a matter of fact yes I asked my doctor to go on insulin prior to his prescribing the Jardiance. He thought that considering the weight gain from daily injectable steroids for my Addison's disease that it was not a good option.

I'm not afraid of needles at all, I inject in to my muscle 3 times daily so a sub-q injection would be nothing to me. I'd prefer the natural part of it. But out of complete respect for my doctor who knows my complex medical history and combination of illnesses, I trust this is the best route for me at the moment.

I do eat LCHF way of eating and do well, except for the times as most of us have where we stray a bit, and then I get right back to eating well.

Thanks for taking the time to answer back to my post and for your offers of alternative treatments. Support means so much.

Gina

Your situation is definitely complicated. You gotta weigh the options and go with what you feel is best.
