Reviews for Steglatro
"I have been taking Steglatro for over a month now and wow my numbers have gone down from the highest 351 to high 254 in to 150-166 range fasting. With diet change . This medicine has really helped me meet my goal numbers"
"While taking this medication Steglatro my BG numbers were great. I am a type 1 diabetic and was using this medication to improve my A1c. I took this medication for about 4 months with a reoccurring yeast Infection about every 3 weeks. I decided to discontinue this medication although my numbers were great I couldn't live with the terrible yeast Infections."
Frequently asked questions
"I use Steglatro 5mg to help reduce the amount of insulin I need to take. I have T1DM. It works very well at reducing my numbers! I am disappointed to say that I may have to go off of it because I get daily headaches. I just started this medication 2 weeks ago, and woke up the first night with a headache. I am going to give it more time, and hopefully the headaches go away so I can stay on this medication!!"
"I've been taking Steglatro for type 2 diabetes for the last 3 months, after metformin really not agreeing with me. After 4 weeks on steglatro I had a really severe reaction down below, which was excruciating for a week, I was going to come off them but pleased I've carried on taking it as I've lost so much weight, which for years I struggled to lose weight, and now its melting off me. I've had no more bad side effects, my sugar levels have dropped so much that I'm 2 points off going into remission, this has been fantastic medication and so pleased I was put on it."

"I got diabetic ketoacidosis acidosis from Steglatro and ended up in the ICU"
"You could have every side effect listed. It will not do much to lower your A1C but you will have sever dehydration. Elevated heart rate and penalties yeast infection. Plus the cost is ridiculous"
"I have a headache all the time and dizzy"
"Works very well ☺️."
"After a year my cholesterol went from 120 to over 300. Dr didn't believe it was the cause so kept me on it. Second year and my cholesterol is 774. No change in diet. Decided to go off."

"This has been awesome my sugars have been the best they have ever been. Mornings used to be 200s NOW avg 150-170, after work used to be 200+, NOW 150-170, before dinner used to be 150, NOW low 100s. I do use with 35 units of Lantus at bedtime and have ended using mealtime insulin regularly ( only use when I spike over 200 ) and even then the amount is drastically lower as 5 units lowers 50-75 on meter. Not experiencing any side effect issues. Taking 5mg dose."
