Other Diabetes Medication

For type 1 diabetic suffers their body no longer produces the insulin needed to sustain normal function, therefore they are known as “insulin dependent”. For them, insulin injections are the only way to keep their blood glucose (sugar) down.

Whereas, type 2 diabetic suffers, they are known as “non-insulin dependent”. This mean that their body is not producing enough insulin and the insulin is not working effectively. In this case they do not necessary require insulin injections to lower their blood glucose (sugar) level down.

Often the first approach to treat type 2 diabetes is through meal planning for blood glucose (sugar) control, weight loss, and exercising.
Sometimes these measures are not enough to bring blood glucose (sugar) levels down to a near normal range. The next step is to take medication that will lower blood glucose levels.
