Looking For A Little Type 2 Help.
Hey again, guys. I received this email from a reader named Barbara who wanted some feedback re: Byetta and how it might affect her. I've never taken Byetta and I don't know much about it, but I was hoping some of you could help fill her in on what she might encounter. Here's her question:
"I have heard lots of good things about Byetta and don't have any serious aversion to taking the stuff except that it's still kind of new, expensive, and don't feel that he is managing my type 2 properly. There are no endocrinologists in this town and a good internist is scarce as hen's teeth. Is there any body out there who would like to share their experiences with Byetta? My family practice type tells me that if I take Byetta, I'll lose weight and then I won't have diabetes anymore. I've already lost 12 pounds on my diet, but have hit a plateau and am starting to cheat big time. I have to do some thing quick. HELP!"
Can you help fill in the blanks for Barbara? (And I love, love, love the phrase "scarce as hen's teeth." I may borrow that from time to time.) Thanks for your input, and thank you, Barbara, for asking!
