I have actually never seen a discussion on treatments here, so I will ask.
What med are you using to control your diabetes? Is it working? Do you like it? Was ther a lot of trial and error involved?
I was not able to try metformin because the kidney issue developed so quickly after dx. I came out of the hospital on insulin and it worked very well for me along with lifestyle changes. After a little over a year, my dr suggested I try Victoza in an effort (unsuccessful) to shed some weight. It worked well for the diabetes, but was hard on my body and I think may be a contributor to the gastritis. When my ins made Victoza non-formulary, I switched to Bydureon which is a weekly injectable. I was skeptical that a once a week injection could control my Blood glucose, but after the first few rocky weeks, it started to work. And without all the upset stomach issues of Victoza. I really think that, for me, Bydureon works better and I am off insulin. I plan to stay off insulin as long as I can, but I won't be averse to using it if I need it.
