does what you said mean that you will not be taking the gylycesset, or do you mean you are supposed to take the new drug PLUS do these things?

Probably wise. In general the results you get from Glyset (and Precose which is similar) are low and the side effects are high. It's been around for 6 years or so but my endo once said that virtually every patient he has ever put on either has stopped within 6 months because of the side effects.

That's good. The past 2 weeks I have been going through some gastric disturbances (intense gas, diarrhea) myself and I couldn't think of anyone willingly wanting to put themselves in the running (no pun intended) for that.

Howdy Cwkw!
This seems like a fairly new med on the market. You might not find many who have taken this (of course I could be wrong) I looked it up in another source the article is here ~

I pray you find the information you need!

I understand from doing internet research on several kinds of "carb blockers" that most of them can cause intestinal distress. This drug contains a carb blocker and when I checked the info in the link I provided I found this: "Miglitol may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:
>stomach pain."

I suffer from the first two (and I am not on any carb blocker). I would love to be not having this problem. I guess you might want to ask what the other drug cocktail might be. And I have been on insulin injections before and may eventually need to go back on them. Insulin is nothing bad or shameful about using it. The only problem might be if you are deathly afraid of needles. Many people were afraid of needles but if it was a choice between a poke with a needle and slow painful death by diabetes complications, they got over their fear and found giving themselves an injection not so bad.
