Off My Diabetes Meds After Sleeve



Recommended Posts

I saw my endocrinologist today and I am now off all of my diabetes meds after being sleeved on 9/1. Before surgery I was on 4 meds: Metformin, Glimipiride, Victoza, and Lantus SoloStar. I am pretty happy with this news.

I still need to check my blood sugars on a daily basis, especially as I move through the next few dietary stages. Hopefully I will be able to stay off of these meds.

Congratulations! I am really happy for you! That was my biggest reason for wanting the sleeve surgery. I hope after my surgery I can Celebrate with you!

Great job. It's a rewarding feeling when you know your weight loss is positively impacting your health.

Congrats!! I came off all my blood sugar meds (Victoza and Glipizide) day of surgery and have been off since. I recently came off my cholesterol meds! As the weight comes off our health really does improve. :)

I had surgery on 12/7 and prior, took Janumet 2x a day and Victoza. In the hospital post surgery my insulin went over 150 a few times and they gave me one unit of insulin each time. I can home yesterday and was instructed by my dr to start taking Janumet once a day and Victoza again. But I tested my sugar first thing this AM and it was only 112 after fasting and 117 2 hours after eating. I am not going to take any of my meds because I am afraid my blood sugar will drop too low. I am pretty psyched. I was only diagnosed with T2 about a year ago and I really think the pre-op diet and surgery have reversed my T2D already.

That's great!! I have been type II for 16 years, and I am afraid mine is here to stay, but with living a low carb life style I need very little medication.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
