I take metorinmen and gybide and Lantus shot.and it dosn't seem to work.Would Victoza work for me.My blood sugars still run from 140-310 sometimes higher.My a1c is 9 I just cant get it down or lost any weight no matter what I do.I am so tried of all the shot I have been on for 2 years now and nothing seem to be helping me.I would like to learn more about this shot.
You can't compare it to lantus, since lantus is insulin. Are you watching your diet? Getting enough exercise? Drinking enough water? That A1c is pretty high. Do you see an endocrinologist? Victoza and byetta are similar. Both have some serious side effects. I believe before you take either one you need to read all about them. https://www.drugs.com/pro/victoza.html and https://www.drugs.com/pro/byetta.html
It is really important you get that blood sugar down and keep it down. If you go over 200 for 5 min it can cause tissue damage.
