I recently began treatment with a new endocrinologist, who has changed my medication strategy. I was taking Humalog on a sliding scale, lantus in the evenings, and metformin- morning & evenings. We decided to try byetta again. After the two weeks and ready to preceed to increasing the dosage, we decided to change to victoza because of the fact that it only requires one injection, more compatible with my lifestyle. However, I have been experiencing the nausea more so than before when taking byetta. I am know longer taking Humalog. My blood sugars are responding positively with this new treatment plan, so I am encouraged to continue, but I am wondering how much longer I can continue functioning feeling this way. At times, I am experiencing severe heat, and feel as though I could faint at any moment. During my last visit with my PCP, a routine urine analysis discovered abnormal levels and therefore prompting a 24 hr. Urine test to re-check protein levels, which have lead more testing. I'm wondering if this is the culprit, instead of medications? Anyone have any comments?
