I have been diabetic for about 9 years now. My last well say several I have complaimed that I do not feel the combo of meds and insulin are not working correctly. Finally in dec 2010 my doc sent me to a diabetic assessment team. We tried Actos with much and many failures and side effects. I am now on a injected drug called Symlin and I love it! It controls your apptite(I know I spelled this wrong) and has helped me greatly. Since I stated working with "the team" my A1C has went from an 11.8 to a 10.2 so far. My doc put me on lipitor alothough EXPENSIVE works well. My cholestrol is all in the normal range. Today was the first day in a VERY looooooong time that my morning sugar was under 200…was 163 this am and have not had a sugar over 170 today and I am sooooo excited and happy!!!
