    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    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 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.
