I just had my doctor recommend thy on my last visit. He wanted me to try Byetta or Victoza.

The feedback I got on the forum was that it forces your pancreas to make insulin and therefore eventually your pancreAs gives out.

I wasn't sure why my doc wanted to change my Meds I was avg 124 bg on my 3 week. List weight and everything.

He pretty much said the benefits included faster weight loss and quicker reduced bg after meals.

I think I'll stick to my Glumetza diet n exercise for now.

It is quite expensive and many people experience stomach problems. Supposedly Victoza is a little better but even more expensive. Some find they stop working after 6 months to a year, maybe that is because they have caused more insulin resistance and beta cell burn out.
