The Dangers of Diabetes Drugs

Filed Under: Diabetes, Blood Sugar

Drugs are, by their very nature, foreign agents. As such, they affect your body in unnatural ways. The most common side effects of drugs prescribed to people managing diabetes are weight gain, gastrointestinal upset, and, sometimes serious liver problems. But that’s not all. In early studies, one diabetes drug in particular (Avandia) was demonstrated to more than double the death rate from heart attack or stroke!

In contrast, thousands of diabetic patients have learned how to manage diabetes with natural treatments, including special supplements for diabetes, easy to prepare recipes for diabetes, and other easily implemented lifestyle changes.

Drugs should be resorted to only after these safe, alternative treatments for diabetes have been given a sincere try. And remember, supplements and nutritional elements will not only support your blood glucose and blood sugar health, but unlike any drug, they will also improve your overall health.
