I went to my Dr today for follow up on routine lab work. It had been several years since I had been in, and it was well over due. I found out I have elevated blood sugar. it was at 105 and the cut off for normal was 99. I also have elevated cholestoral...I guess the cut off for that is 199 and I was 223. Dr gave me a script for Byetta. he told me I do not have diabetes, but I have "pre-diabetes" because of my bloood sugar and the fact that my mother has diabetes. He also said it will help curb my appetite. I am looking for feedback from folks that may have some experience with this drug? I am very unsure about the fact that it is an injected shot? To be taken 2cwe a day? that worries me? I take nothing right now. I would love to hear anyone's stories concerning this? He said once the blood sugar gets under control, and the weight starts coming off that the cholestoral will come down as well, but right now we would focus on glucose?
