    Hi does anyone have and information on GLP-1, my husband had his first injection on Saturday morning and is now suffering from really bad stomach pain and nausea, we expected the nausea but the stomach pain is really bad.

    Hi @kimwright23 and welcome.
    There are a few medications in the list of GLP-1s, tell us which one your husband has been prescribed and then hopefully members taking this medication will respond.

    If you haven't already, you might want to have a read through this link (it includes a list of possible side effects, although stomach pain isn't listed):

    http://www.diabetes.co.uk/diabetes-medication/incretin-mimetics.html

    If Trulicity is the brand of incretin-mimetics which your husband is using (I'm assuming because Saturday was his first/most recent injection) - you may want to try using the search bar in the top right to search for that brand of GLP-1. That may help you find your answer until someone can offer some first hand experience:)
