What is Diabetes medicine?

It is the kind of medicine you take depends on your type of diabetes, your schedule, and your other health conditions. With type 1 diabetes, your pancreas does not make insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood.

The goal of treatment for you is to help your body use your insulin better or to get rid of extra sugar in your blood. Most medications for type 2 diabetes are oral drugs. However, a few come as injections. Some people with type 2 diabetes may also need to take insulin.

There are several types of medicines for diabetes, one of the cheaper and more prescribed ones is called Metformin. You can buy it by clicking the previous link. Your doctor will help prescribe which is the best diabetes medicine for you.

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Diabetes. Below is what he has to say.

Diabetes is a disease which impairs the body's ability to produce insulin, resulting in the abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates, which leads to elevated levels of blood glucose. People with diabetes can experience a number of complications including skin and eye problems, nerve damage that can cause painful tingling sensation in the hands and feet, kidney disease that can eventually lead to kidney failure, high blood pressure and much more.

Symptoms of diabetes can include blurred vision, feeling tired, increased thirst and the need to pee more frequently. Diabetes can be managed with dietary changes, exercise and medications. If you have diabetes it is very important to take your medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor and always attend your regular checkups. For convenience you can order your diabetes medications, such as Competact, Glucophage SR, Metformin and Onglyza from UK Meds.
