Diabetes Drugs



Common diabetes drugs are listed below with natural solutions for preventing side effects. Developing drug side effects is the number one reason why diabetics stop taking their medications.

Low compliance with prescribed treatments is driving the epidemic and is leaving millions of people at risk.

The CDC estimates that less than 40% of diabetics take their medications as prescribed. In an effort to improve patient compliance and prognosis, there is a new focus in diabetes care.

This new focus of care is designed to place the control, management and prevention of disease into the hands of the patient. Knowledge is powerful when it comes to diabetes and with the information, diabetic patients are reporting more control over their disease outcome.

But there's a problem...despite the efforts to educate patients, compliance remains low.

No one is teaching diabetics about the side effects associated with the drugs and, more importantly, how to prevent them. Well that's about to change!
