Diabetes Treatment Options After Oral Medications Fail
If you have type 2 diabetes, you probably began your treatment with lifestyle changes and oral medications. For many, these treatments are enough to control blood sugar, also called blood glucose, for several years.
However, for other people, these options aren’t always enough. Your blood sugar may still be elevated, even though you’ve made healthy changes to your diet and exercise routine and are taking your medication as prescribed.
For some people with diabetes, oral medications alone aren’t enough to control blood sugar levels long term. You might wonder why your medication isn’t working anymore and what your next options for treatment are. While there are several treatment possibilities available beyond oral medications for diabetes, it’s important to talk with your doctor about your unique medical history and circumstances. Your doctor can help put a treatment plan together that will fit you best.
