I’m a Type 2 diabetic and overweight. I admit that I am lazy and have been struggling to make the right choices to lose weight.
My doctor has advised that as I have a short window of opportunity to try to ‘reverse’ my situation, I should try to lose weight on my own for the next 3 months. If no drop in my HbA1C level (currently 6.7), then I should go start taking Victoza injections.
I have just had my Glucophage dosage increased to 850mg twice daily. What experiences have other diabetics had on this medication? Should I try on my own or start on the Victoza sooner than later?
Any advice would be appreciated.
