Diabetes & Medications

Diabetes treatment can vary depending on whether you have type 1 or 2. Healthy lifestyle habits, like nutrition, exercise, and weight control can definitely help with either type. Type 1 diabetes treatment does consist of taking insulin daily, due to the impaired function of the pancreas. However, with type 2 diabetes, medications seem to be the only option presented when it comes to addressing the condition with your doctor. Healthcare professionals suggest medications are needed to balance blood sugar levels, however, there are many risks that come with doing so.



There are many different medications that can be prescribed and work in different ways to lower blood sugar levels. These drugs may work by…

  • Stimulating the pancreas to produce and release more insulin

  • Blocking the production and release of glucose from the liver

  • Stopping the action of stomach enzymes that break down carbohydrates

  • Improving the sensitivity of cells to insulin

  • Inhibiting the reabsorption of glucose in the kidneys

  • Slowing down how quickly food moves through the stomach

While these all may sound great, as mentioned above there are risks that can come with taking these medications. The risks include…

  • Weight gain

  • Hypoglycemia

  • Skin rash

  • Upper respiratory tract infection

  • Sore throat

  • Headaches
