New Drug Treatments

New Drug Treatments

My partner was diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago and was placed on metformin. He struggled to tolerate it as first but seems to be better managed with it now. We keep hearing of other people using newer drugs for their diabetes and obviously see all the adverts on TV. Does anyone have any feedback on these drugs and whether they feel better controlled on them than on metformin?

I joined an organisation called DIABETES UK as their information is more accurate than any from my doctors

Thank you @A DiabetesTeam Member - how are you tolerating the Invokana? Do you know why the doc put you on Invokana as well as insulin?
