where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Recently started to take Victoza on advice from my Endo with the hopeful outcome of using less insulin. It is not FDA approved for T1 but that is in the works. Any T1s with positive or negative experience after starting Victoza as a way to lessen the amount of insulin required daily? I'm all ears.

I lost 40 pounds and it really changed my life! Nausea was pretty bad though

That is exactly what I wanted to hear**** It looks like I'm in a game of give and take, give to nausea and take the weight loss. Thank you for the honest feedback.

One more question if you don't mind**** What kind of timeframe did it take to lose the weight?

Not familiar w/this one. But I use symlin. It drops my bs fast but helps w/appetite. Don't know if you experience I can eat all day feeling

I used Victoza but couldn't really bare the nausea. It suppressed my appetite which was great. I've recently changed over to Bydureon which is one shot a week and is suppose to have the same effects.

T1, taking Victoza and Metformin (in addition to Humalog and Levemir). Both have really leveled out my #s. (Though 1 month of nausea was unpleasant.) Lost lots of weight, which for me was a negative.
