A new study recently presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes claimed that a class of diabetes drugs - sulfonylureas - is 58% more likely to kill you than metformin.
This diabetes study seems like a good sign, at first, coming from a pharmaceutical company. After all, patients generally face the opposite - not knowing about the deadly side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
Until, I read the makers of metformin funded the study...
Are the dangers of diabetes medications a necessary evil?
Some of the side effects of metformin include: Stomach pain
, diarrohoea, painful urination, sleepiness, confusion, depression
So, the fact that metformin may be less deadly than the other drugs, doesn’t necessarily make metformin the best option for diabetes
The safer natural alternative to treat diabetes Are the dangers
A number of studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals in 2008 found berberine to be just as effective as metformin.
And the plus side: It’s much safer than metformin which is the most commonly prescribed diabetes
drug to help re-regulate blood sugar
in type II diabetics.
But that’s not all…
A study also found in just 13 weeks, patients on berberine experienced more significant reductions in cholesterol
and triglycerides than patients on metformin.
Now THAT sounds like something to write about!
