I had to see my endochrinologist for my 3 month check-up last week. I had failed to cope with 1 more diabetic med, Victoza, and even the drug company was unhappy because I coulod not take it. My Drs. PA saw me this time and he said to me, "Do you have a gall bladder?" I said, "No, I lost that almost 36 years ago and I really haven't seemed to miss it." He said, "Oh, you are missing it, all right. I understand that if you are diabetic, with no gall bladder, you often have trouble with the various diabetic meds. They need the filtering system that your gall bladder had." So now I guess why I have been unable to take metformin in various forms, and prandin, and byetta, and Victoza, and on and on is because I nearly died and spent a month having gall bladder complications of many kinds, may be because I no longer have a gall bladder. I never heard of such a thing. I wonder what affects the other 25 surgeries and losses of body parts are causing now. Have any of you ever heard of such a thing?
