Some people with type 2 diabetes may take exenatide (Byetta®) to lower their blood sugar levels. Exenatide works by increasing insulin production after meals and by decreasing the amount of sugar produced by the liver. There are other alternatives to exenatide, including lifestyle changes and other diabetes medications. Prior to taking exenatide, be sure to tell your healthcare provider about all of the medications you are currently taking and if you have kidney problems or any allergies.
