I have been on Exenotide for about 3 years now and its the best thing I ever did. Like you, I progressed from diet to Metformin to Metformin ++ and finally to Lantus. The Lantus never really worked, my dose went up and up as did my weight but my sugar levels were never under control
Within a year of starting the Exenodtide I had lost 3 stone, some of which can be accredited to the fact that it made me so sick in the early days, but I am so glad I persevered. Since then the weight loss has slowed and I lost a further stone and a half. It is now staying steady, My appetite is better than it was when I first began the treatment but it has never gone back to what it was before
All in all I am very pleased with it
