Anti-diabetic Medication

Drugs used in diabetes treat diabetes mellitus by lowering glucose levels in the blood. With the exceptions of Insulin, exenatide, liraglutide and pramlintide, all are administered orally and are thus also called oral hypoglycemic agents or oral antihyperglycemic agents. There are different classes of anti-diabetic drugs, and their selection depends on the nature of the diabetes, age and situation of the person, as well as other factors. Diabetes mellitus type 1 is a disease caused by the lack of insulin. Insulin must be used in Type I, which must be injected. Diabetes mellitus type 2 is a disease of insulin resistance by cells. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is the most common type of diabetes. Treatments include (1) agents that increase the amount of insulin secreted by the pancreas, (2) agents that increase the sensitivity of target organs to insulin, and (3) agents that decrease the rate at which glucose is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract.

    Mine was 9.4, and I regularly had 300 blood sugars, some as high as 600. I was 361 lbs.
    I started low carb 3 and a half years ago, and have been off all diabetes meds for 28 months now. My last A1C was 5.1, lower than my 28 year old doctor's, who is 130 lbs.
    I dropped 140 lbs also, put back on 40 over the summer, and now back down to 248, but overall, down 113. That helped.
