Don’t Use Victoza To Prevent Diabetes

| March 22, 2017 | Comments (0)

Between normal blood sugar readings and those that will get you a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, there is something of a grey area. It is called prediabetes – and, as I pointed out here, it’s one of those conditions that has primarily been invented to sell more diabetes drugs. In a new, placebo-controlled study, […]

Sulphonylurea Drugs Could Damage Your Heart

| March 20, 2017 | Comments (0)

Sulphonylurea drugs, like glimepiride (Amaryl) and glibenclamide (Daonil), are given to people with type 2 diabetes, to boost insulin production. Next to metformin, they are the most commonly prescribed class of diabetes drugs, accounting for 8.5 million prescriptions in England alone last year. But sulphonylureas have a major drawback – they seriously raise the risk […]

Diabetes and Other Drugs That Make You Fat

| March 8, 2017 | Comments (0)

If you have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, your doctor has probably talked to you about the importance of keeping a healthy body weight and losing excess pounds if you need to. But sometimes it isn’t that easy – you follow a healthy eating plan and get regular exercise, but still your weight doesn’t […]

Gliptin Drugs Raise Heart Failure Risks

| November 29, 2016 | Comments (0)

People with type 2 diabetes are at higher risk of congestive heart failure. So it is astonishing that some diabetes drugs are still prescribed when they are known to increase heart failure risk further – in some cases by as much as 42 per cent, as I reported here. Congestive heart failure happens when the […]

Diabetes Drug Doesn’t Improve Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

| June 7, 2016 | Comments (0)

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), as its name suggests, involves a build-up of fat in the liver that isn’t due to over-indulgence in alcohol. At present, conventional medicine has no drugs that can successfully treat it. But since NAFLD affects around half of people with type 2 diabetes and one in three of the general […]

Could Anti-Diabetic Drugs Fuel The Spread Of Cancer?

| May 10, 2016 | Comments (0)

People with diabetes are at increased risk of developing cancer, as I mentioned previously here. The risks of pancreatic, colorectal, liver, bladder, breast and endometrial cancers all go up. So it is disturbing, to say the least, that a recent study showed a class of diabetes drugs called DPP-4 inhibitors could fuel the spread of […]

More Actos Dangers And Side Effects

| April 23, 2016 | Comments (0)

In my last blog post, I reported on a new study linking the use of diabetes drug Actos with a 63 per cent higher risk of bladder cancer. But that isn’t the only risk that goes up when you start taking this drug. You are also putting yourself in line for several other serious health […]

Diabetes Drug Cancer Link Confirmed

| April 19, 2016 | Comments (0)

I have written before on Real Diabetes Truth about the dangers of the diabetes drug Actos (pioglitazone). It has been suspected for over a decade of causing bladder cancer. Now, a new study confirms those suspicions, finding Actos use linked with an overall 63 per cent increase in bladder cancer risk. The higher the dosage, […]

Drug Treatment Can Worsen Rare Form Of Diabetes

| April 5, 2016 | Comments (0)

We tend to think about diabetes as either type 1 – an autoimmune disease that requires insulin injections – or type 2, when the body cells don’t react to insulin or the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin. But it isn’t quite that simple, and when doctors don’t recognise what they are dealing with, well-meant drug […]

Type 2 Diabetes Drug Just Makes Matters Worse

| March 8, 2016 | Comments (0)

A group of drugs called incretin mimetics (also known as GLP-1 agonists), which are given by injection, are commonly prescribed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. They stimulate the glucose response of the pancreatic beta-cells to make them secrete more insulin. But, as I explain here, here and here, they may also increase the […]
