Most of these drugs actually make it hard to lose weight which is not beneficial for a diabetic. Some drugs raise your risk of having a heart attack while others can damage your kidneys, and some may increase your risk of deadly pancreatic cancer. These drugs only cause a worsening of diabetes and neuropathy. Big Pharma wants you to believe that the drugs for diabetes and neuropathy are your only choice when actually a change of diet, loss of weight and additional exercise can help you avoid taking antidiabetic drugs. Don't be duped! Make the right choice and change your diet, lose weight, get more exercise and get off your diabetic medication, but always consult your physician before you make these choices.
