More Convenient Diabetes Treatments
The way we treat diabetes has changed greatly over decades of research and treatment. Years ago, if metformin alone didn’t help keep a diabetic’s blood sugar in the proper range, there were only a few other options to try.
Doctors generally added or switched among a few oral medications to see if they could identify a new combination that worked. If a working combination couldn’t be found, the option to resort to insulin lurked in the background.
