It is important to talk to your doctor to see what is best for you and tell them of these findings if they are not aware, as described in this article. These increased dangerous drug complications are particularly tragic since most diabetes can be most controlled without drugs with sufficient weight loss: thus eliminating most of these drug side effects. Exercise is also beneficial. However our system tends to put more energy into drugs than lifestyle. And physicians are sometimes hesitant to emphasize to patients that “portion control” is the key to weight loss and diabetes control, because of patient pushback and then system pushback from the unhappy patients. In the meantime for patients who must take these drugs the above finding should be factored into medication decision making.
