Diabetes Type 2 Support Group

Type 2 Diabetes is a condition in which the body either does not produce enough insulin or does not make efficient use of it. Insulin is a hormone needed to convert food into glucose, a sugar that the body uses for energy. Without enough insulin, glucose can accumulate in the blood, and can cause serious health problems such as heart disease and strokes and organ damage such as eye and kidney damage.

I was on symlin for 3 months and had to stop taking it. I ended up with my blood sugar going higher than before. After being on it for a month I began having diahreea. I did lose 15 pounds. My doctor took me off of it and put me on actos. The diarheea stopped and my sugars went down quite a bit. i also take metformin and insulin. i was able to cut down on the insulin also. i guess it wasnt for me. Good luck!
