Non-Insulin Injectables and Weight Loss
Most people who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes know what they’re going to hear from their doctor or diabetes educator: it’s time to shed a few pounds. Indeed, losing a little weight will go a long way to help keep blood sugar levels under control.
But sometimes it’s not enough to watch what you eat and go to the gym. Sometimes you do need to take a medication—or maybe even a combination of medications. Some meds may help you get your blood sugar under control, with the added benefit of helping you lose weight, while others help you lose weight, which then helps you manage your blood sugar levels. And depending on your situation, a non-insulin injectable treatment might be a great option for you—one that helps you achieve your goals.
