Living with type 2 diabetes often means making a lot of lifestyle adjustments. Aside from taking pills, you’ve probably been advised to adjust your diet, become more physically active and find ways to manage your stress levels, among other things. But sometimes even all those changes—no matter how faithful you’ve been—can’t bring down your blood glucose (sugar) levels low enough for your diabetes to be controlled. When this happens, your endocrinologist may suggest you try another route: non-insulin injectables.

Advances in diabetes treatment have recently brought us non-insulin injectable medications, which can be a great option to help you control your diabetes and stay healthy.
