Just want to remind everyone how important proper nutrition is in all this~ getting the right amount of protein, fewer carbs, more veggies, more healthy fat sources... wouldn't it be even greater to be OFF all meds??
When I dream, I dream big! LOL
But... why not?

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But I don't think you have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too!

It was pretty creepy. don't think I ever sweated that much in my life...

Sad thing is, it helps so many others. I was looking forward to being able to control things easier but I can't use it.
Oh well. I'm still here and still working at it! LOL

Don't let my experience deter you from talking to your medical team about it. It might be worth trying for you...

For those who don't know, Byetta is an injectable medication to help control high blood sugar. A lot of people benefit from it, as it helps with weight loss in the process.
My doctor tried me on it...
... 5 units. My blood sugar dropped like a rock--and kept on dropping. Nothing I tried stopped it, and I ended up in the Emergency Room with a blood sugar of less than 35. Turns out it paralyzed my stomach muscles so the glucose tablets and juice and food I'd taken couldn't get to the intestines to be digested.

If you have stomach slowing issues, it is not recommended. I didn't know I had any issues...

Talk it over thoroughly with your doctors.
