Medication for Diabetes is a hot topic today with all the suggestions on media, which is often confusing. Some people even think medications are not necessary, or forget taking medications due to their busy lifestyle. However, research shows that medications do play a critical role in the health of individuals, particularly with diabetes.
Many new diabetes medications for managing blood glucose are being developed each year. In addition, over the counter medications and some natural supplements can sometimes interact with diabetes medication. Therefore, it is important to communicate with your health care team of doctors and pharmacist.
Medications are a tool for managing your health and should be used as prescribed by health professionals. However, it is crucial to ask questions and stay informed. Learn more by attending the Diabetes and Medication program.
