I am going to start the injectable Trulicity. I have been taking metformin since 2019 and I thought it would be nice not having to take pills every day. Also my doctor said it will help with some weight loss too. Anyone on using Trulicity? How do you like it?

      Domagoha: I was put on 1000 mg to start with. I had a bad reaction and it made my sugar go down into the 20-30s. So it was stopped . I had been doing ketogenic, but was recently dx with Gastroparesis and had to stop the diet. Now my sugar is back out of control and will have to look at meds again.

      Anyone else taking this much? I don’t want to go to the insulin shot, what is the highest dosage that is given of Medformin before they start putting you on insulin shots?

      I was diagnosed in 2005 and was on 500 mg until 2017 they are having me take 1000 in morning and 1000 mg at night.

      Lauriely yes I was nauseous and it continues daily. But it is worth it.

      I was diagnosed in 2020 & have only been given a few different meds to try. Let me know how it goes for you. I've seen some info on that meds and plan to mention it to my new diabetic dr the next time i see them.

      Lollie, that is awesome! Did you have any side effects? Especially in the beginning?

      I take victoza and it helped me tremendously. I have lost at least 40 pounds and now my A1c is pre diabetic.
