I'll just eat less, thank you.


there...I lost some weight. thanks.

I'm familiar with this, thank you. It's an injection and makes you feel a bit sick halfway through your meal. It's not really very much like being bitten by a gila monster (not that I have the experience to compare the two).

Señor leezard, I speet on jew.

I would imagine French-kissing a venomous serpent would tend to reduce one's appetite. For food, anyway.

*changes "serpent" to "reptile" before any zoologists have a chance to get cranked up*

It's amazing how these days the amazing weight loss aid of not eating so much is rarely mentioned in studies.

I gotta jump in here and say this is wonderful stuff!!!

As a diabetic using insulin, gaining weight is not always about eating. The way the insulin works it converts unprocessed sugars (as a result of the diabetes) into fat. Almost all diabetics who start on insulin gain weight.

When I started on this the first week or so I had some incidents of upset stomach but that passed.

Now, after being on it for about a year, I've lost all the weight I gained when I started using insulin.

All things considered, I have to say thanks to whatever brain wave had someone look at Gila Monster spit for diabetics.

I'm type 2 and even before I was "officially" diabetic, my blood sugar levels seemed to swing, causing me to become ravenous, so over the years my weight crept up. Personally, I think it's the diabetes that causes the weight gain -- not so much the other way around.

Anyway, I'm having trouble getting my blood sugar level down to normal with metformine and eating properly (weight as well). I just hope now that my doctor doesn't get any bright ideas...

OTOH, if you others have tried it and liked it, it would be nice to lose weight and not getting fussed at by doctors and to be able to buy more "normal" sized clothing (Gawd, but the French are skinny!)...OTOH, I'm not crazy about being queasy. Metformine is bad enough -- especially in Paris, where they think public loos should be distributed sparingly.
