I have insulin resistance (PCOS), which comes with difficulty losing weight no matter the effort, acne, low energy, etc. I cannot lose more than 10 lbs EVER and I am 40-45 pounds overweight. I'm also pre-diabetic with family history of diabetes. I'm at 5.8 a1C and fasting sugar is 140. I'm on Metformin 1000mg but I am building tolerance. The doctor suggested Bydureon and increasing Metformin to 2000 mg. She told me to think about it but I'm not sure after reading the experiences/effects. Having nausea/diarrhea constantly sounds horrible and I am not a needle person. Plus, I've heard it is super pricey. Is it worth it??
I think given your problems I would try it. You don't know how you would react to it and having an elevated blood sugar is harmful to your body. The needles are small and really don't hurt. There is assistance for it too. If you decide to go on it go to rxassist.org and it will show you how to apply for it.
