Well my doctor finally changed my diabetic meds from Actos and Glipizide ER to Januvia. Ever since I started taking them I have had a problem with my feet swelling and my joints hurting alot. (which are symptoms/side effects of those meds). He changed it to just Januvia tablets. I just had blood work done to get the baseline before I start the new med tomorrow.
I will be going to the consultation/Education to look into the Lap Band program. they do have a good program and it would be good for me. However the question is-after my medical insurance pays their end of it-can I afford my part of it???
The program here at the hospital I work at is one of the best in the country and works with the before, during and after the surgery with the follow-ups and support groups all along the way. Well, my husband is my biggest cheerleader.
There have been alot of people that have gone through the program, got it done and their diabetes is gone. You have to continue with the healthy lifestyle and eat healthy-which I am very much familiar with already. And will be taking Vitamins and Supplements the rest of my life.
I will see when I attend the consultation on April 23rd.
All in all they are all tools along with Exercise that will help me lose my weight.
