You said you controlled your diabetes with diet for years... what type of diet?

Found this on animal vs human insulin by a proponent of animal insulin.

Cool

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who responded. I am very sensitive to meds so I hope this victoza can help. I hate waking up with BS at 250+. I was on a low carb diet for a long time but even low carbine isn't getting these numbers down. As of tomorrow the surgery was 2 weeks ago. Doctor said there was a great deal of inflammation etc due to the pancreatitis and my gallbladder was scarred and filled with stones when removed. Could healing from the trauma of surgery still cause my sugars to be so out of whack? If so how long does it take to normalize after a surgery?
So many questions. Thanks in advance
Vikki

Absolutely YES, Vikki! That much inflammation, the surgical 'assault' on your body, not even to mention the emotional stress caused by that blankety-blank doctor . . . tailor-made to send your blood sugars soaring.

Try to be patient, get lots of rest, keep up the low carbing and use as much natural fat as you can tolerate. It may take awhile for everything to get calmed down, but I'm sure it will.

Vikki- anxiety had my sugars up like crazy last month. Inflammation stinks- both together are a recipe, like Shanny said, for things out of whack. You'll be fine and the numbers will go down. Keep us posted!

Those things for sure can keep levels high. If you do take victoza sip some diet gingerale or diet 7 up about 15 minutes before injection. This will help in the first week so you do not feel stomach upset.

Yikes, what an endo!

Go to someone else if you can!

Whew it can definitely be figured out!

Things you can do are low carb moderate protein, hig fat look into metformin (to help with insulin resistance), and then hopefully work with someone who can help you get your insulin dosage correct!

Try reading up on victoza
Byetta, Bydureon, and Victoza

you may re-consider.

How are you feeling now?

There is plenty of reading you can do as well re insulin usage, once you feel up to it let us know and well give suggestions.
