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.

Did The Doc Tell You That You Had High Triglycerides At The Same Time You Got Your Type 2 Diagnosis?

Most of us were "misdiagnosed".

Ok, not really, but rather our "condition" was "mislabeled".

Fully 80% of Type 2 Diabetics actually have a condition called Metabolic Syndrome.

That is an (umbrella) disorder that is a (collection) of diseases or conditions with Type 2 being the one that seems to get all the attention and strike the most fear.

But, again, most of us didn't simply get the "You have Diabetes" talk because the Doc may have muttered about High Cholesterol, Low Good Cholesterol… read more

Has Anyone Run Out Of Their Meds Due To Lack Of Money Or Other Circumstances.

Has Anyone Run Out Of Their Meds Due To Lack Of Money Or Other Circumstances.

I forgot to order Novorapid yesterday & so I went without one injection at dinner last night. Money is a little tight, so I waited to order & then forgot. Hoping that this will not cause a major spike in my counts.
