Pros and Cons for a new U.S. Ally for Diabetes

It is not often that people with diabetes can buy medicines on their own. However, U.S. residents with this disease are now one up on other nationalities with glucose metabolism issues and weight problems.

The U.S. FDA has cleared a new presentation of a drug which doctors have prescribed for some time now, for weight loss: you can buy the new product without a prescription. You should remember to take a multi-vitamin pill every day with this stuff, because it could deprive you of a few important dietary nutrients.

The medicine works by preventing fat in your food from crossing your gut and entering the blood stream. The unabsorbed fat just passes out with stools, which can become oily with more wind than usual, as a result.

This does not mean that you can gorge on fats-certainly not if you have diabetes. However, it will help as an overall weight loss plan. It could therefore help to keep the creeping pounds away when you first get your diabetes under control.

The medicine has had some disturbing side-effects in animals, but U.S. regulators have sided with the brand owner, and have allowed the product on U.S. retail shelves.

Why not take a print out of the product web-site when you call on your physician next? Here is the link, which I accessed earlier today:
