Went to my doctor today and he said I am getting a "stiff heart." That my heart doesn't go into the relax mode and this can become quite serious. When I became a diabetic, I gained some weight, and all these health problems started. Anway, he has told me about his drug called Byetta, that it works on your blood surgars, but it also has the added affect of making you lose weight. Well, I was all gung ho to take it, then I read that it causes pretty severe stomach upset, that lasts a long time. And that it can cause pancreatic problems, but most importantly, it can cause kidney failure. I also read somewhere that it really isn't all that effective for dropping your sugar levels.
Has anyone had any experience with this drug and how did you feel on it? Did you have horrible side affects and did it make you lose weight? Like, how much weight?
