I've been on victoza & lever for about 3 years now. My a1c over that time has gone from 9.2 to now a 6.7. I've lost 30 pounds & have a healthier lifestyle now which includes exercise & eating better. I take Hyzaar for my bp. I was diagnosed with early kidney disease after my first son. I've been in metformin before even the ER one but I always got diarrhea & horrible stomach pains from it. What would be a good oral med to take once I get off victoza & levermir that would not affect my kidneys? Sad to say but I feel like I have to do my own research.
