The toxic side effects of diabetic drugs is why if you take them as directed your life is likely to be shortened especially compared to gastric bypass surgery as treatment. That’s why you have to keep blood glucose in a zone. Controlling hunger hormones like insulin and satiety hormones such as PYY and GLP-1 are the key especially since they can be controlled with an anti-inflammatory diet.
With type-2 diabetes, it’s important to keep blood sugar under control, but there’s also a danger in using too many drugs to bring levels to unhealthy lows, says Dr. Rozalina McCoy, from the Mayo Clinic. McCoy and her colleagues report in JAMA Internal Medicine about a study of more than 31,000 adults with type 2 diabetes.
