    This medication brought my A1C down to 5.7, however, I gained over 60lbs. I retained fluid all over my body especially in my abdominal wall. It took lots of research on my part to figure out that the fluid retention was coming from the Duetact. Once I stopped the med I lost 14lbs. in 2 days, however that was after many tests had been conducted. I would never take this medication again. Thank God I figured out the problem and went to the Doctor with all kinds of documentation in my hand.

    weight gain but losing eyesight due to eyes swelling was the biggest danger for me. I have gotton off of it as of yesterday and been to see an eye specialist who is treating the edema. If someone on this drug begins to have trouble seeing, I would advise them to stop the medication and get their eyes checked for edema.

    Comment from: Annie, 65-74 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: October 08

    This treatment worked fine for me as long as I followed the recommended meals (5 or 6 per day), usually every 2-3 hrs. Liked the fact that I could feel when my blood sugar was dropping. The down side is that my insurance plan won't cover it and it is too expensive for me.
