Hi everyone! Have had trouble signing on for a longtime. Heres the latest: Used to take Actos and my endo took me off and put me on Metformin .My sugars were still too high at night so he added Onglyza.First night my sugar was 89 so thats alot better! Going back on Monday and will see what he says. Soon as I stopped taking the Actos I lost 30 pounds! And Im continuing to lose slowly. Have missed posting! Hopefully Im back.

30 pounds - impressive! You must feel great!

30 pounds WOW, very impressive. I have only 5 pounds and couldn't get them to go away regardless. The more I exercise it seems to get more on instead of losing.

Barb, great news. Congratulations. Always good to have those blood sugars where they should be.

Losing weight slowly is the best way. Most likely will stay off in the long run if you stay true to good eating habits.

Good to see you again.
