I was on tresiba a few years ago, to be honest I didn’t like it as it was too flat which didn’t work for me as it gave me more hypos in my most sensitive time of day. But the consultant at the old hospital thought it was the best thing ever and didn’t want me to switch back. I’m on lantus and apidra now, and have been for the last couple of years. I still take the metformin, and a beta blocker for the svt, though we switched it to a different one, propanalol instead of bisoprolol as the propanalol has the benefit of reducing anxiety too. It’s helped in some ways, as I am able to perform musically without shaking any more. Haven’t noticed it reducing any of my other anxieties reducing but music is important to me so it’s worth the hassle of having to remember to take it three times a day (bisoprolol was only once).
I was taking Victoza but i don’t think it was doing anything so we stopped it today and have started a low dose of one of the tablets that make you pee out sugar instead, to support weight loss efforts which I am starting renewed efforts at. I didn’t ask about my a1c level or cholesterol or anything else numbers wise, I’ll probably get them on the letter I get sent a copy of. (Dictating this on iPad and thought quick better select all / copy now just in case!).
Also setting up some appointments with the dietician and nurse at the diabetes centre to talk about diet and bgs. I’m not interested in LCHF, it doesn’t suit me at all as fat upsets my stomach, but a moderate carb / protein diet, with some of the carbs switched for veg and learning eating habits that keep weight off is what I’d want to aim for. The appointments with the nurse are to check in before I see the consultant in 6 months, talk about the bgs and help me adjust things as they change when I hopefully lose weight. We can also put the new tablet up to the full dose if it goes okay.
