Re: [IP] Re: Symlin

Symlin is dosed differently for type 1s and type 2s.
I tried it last fall and it did nothing for me.  I used more insulin,  had 
worse numbers, and gained weight.
As a type 2, byetta was a thought, and I started it in February with great  
results.  Yes, it's technically off label, but many drs are using it on  type 
2s using insulin.
YMMV, as always.

Once I found the correct dosage, I had no side effects  whatsoever.  Here's 
how it works.  You start with 2 units.   If you have no billiousness or 
nausea, you try 3 or 4 units next time and  so on. I was fine at 2, 3, 4, 5, 
but when I tried 8 units, I felt  queasy. So, I stayed at 8 units each meal 
a few days because the  product insert advises that.  It says that the 
queasiness may pass,  but if not, to back down to the dose where you felt
