Is There An Advantage To Trying To Wean Off Medication And Treat With Diet/exercise Alone?

Is There An Advantage To Trying To Wean Off Medication And Treat With Diet/exercise Alone?

Valid question and one that in particular the newly diagnosed may ask.

There can be a few reasons why a Type 2 would want to treat "without meds".

Perhaps it's the feeling to taking control of their own destiny, or just utter hate of Big Pharma (or little pharma); worries about side effects for meds, whatever.

But if you are even considering going down the path to "sans medication" you should really be aware of what you are proposing that you are going to get into.

@A DiabetesTeam Member Victoza was the second one of that drug class that hit the market (back in 2010) so it certainly is "likely" that Ozempic, which came on the market almost 8 years later comes… read more

Does Covid Cause Diabetes?

Does Covid Cause Diabetes?

Over the past year in particular the diagnosed rate of Diabetes has jumped by almost 50%.

Pre-Pandemic about 8% (about 1 in 12) of the population was diabetic and in the two years since that number has jumped to 12% (about 1 in 8 now).

Some of it could be explained away by people "locked up, sitting around and eating a lot of junk" - so they simply took themselves to the "tipping point" sooner then they would have.

But that didn't explain it all and in particular the number of "under 18's"… read more

I think it came out of a lab too. There is labs all over the world experimenting on diseases and cures. It can happen anywhere at any time!

Has anyone found that gliperide along with Byetta and Metformin lowers their sugar to a dangerous low? My Endocrinologist just started me on Gliperide due to my A1c being at 8. I've had several very low episodes, I did contact the Dr. And I've been directed to cut the pill in half. Still my numbers are running low for me. Thank you

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

I'll talk to my doctor about that. I think that the Byetta I inject has a side effect with the Gliperide mostly.

Why Is Ozempic Becoming The Most Popularly Prescribed 2nd Tier Treatment For Type 2?

Why Is Ozempic Becoming The Most Popularly Prescribed 2nd Tier Treatment For Type 2?

You can’t watch a TV show without seeing Ozempic or Rybelsus commercials.

So why the big marketing push?

They both belong to the class called GLP-1 Agonists which include Trulicity and Victoza.

The early versions first hit the market in 2006 (Byetta and Bydureon).

Along the way the effectiveness/utility was improved with Victoza (2010), Trulicity (2014), Ozempic (2017) and finally Rybelsus (2020).

Being so "new" none are available as a generic.

Despite a “black box warning” about Thyroid… read more
