    Hi Guys and Gals!
    colesmom63 posted:
    Last Wed I was put on Victoza, which was added to my Metformin 500mg twice a day. I am having trouble limiting my carbs. How did you guys/gals do it? This is so difficult for me. I was diagnosed Type 2 a few months back. I started with Metformin 500mg twice a day. I am truly a carb addict and it is frightening me because I can't seem to control myself. My numbers 2 hours after I eat are in ithe 190's. I know, not good. Please I need some advice. I went to a diabetes education class and learned about carbs and such, but I feel do defeated. I would love to see a dietician but do not have the money to pay them, so what can I do? Please help me if you can! Thanks Sheri
