I'm a 51 year old female who had a completely normal colonoscopy 9 months ago...just started taking Victoza 13 days ago and I am finding myself in the hospital with severe ischemic colitis 😞 I can't work and am looking at a possible colon resection...
I have observed a problem with urinating when I take over 2000 mg of Glucophage (metformine) per day. This is worst in the early morning at the time of waking up. I am trying cranberry capsules and sometimes I take non-alcoholic beer. Still it is not as severe when I take a lot of water, but at night this disrupts my sleep to visit the toilet several times. I believe Glucophage is the least evil among all medications for diabetes type 2, because I am wary about taking insulin. Any alternative advice by anybody? regards. Abu Suhail
