A Revolution in Diabetes Management
If you’re dealing with a diabetes health diagnosis, chances are you have to give yourself shots of insulin throughout the day to manage your blood sugar. Wouldn’t it be great if you could cut down the number of injections from three times a day to once a week?
Scientists in Toronto are working to make that dream a reality, and so far they’ve had very promising results. They’ve found that a revamped version of the drug Byetta (exenatide) works better at managing one's blood sugar level than daily injections. Even better, the once-a-week version did not increase one's hypoglycemia risk and showed similar body weight reductions as seen with the daily version.
Before you weep for joy, know that it will take a few years before you see this on the market. Still, there's comfort in knowing that an important change in your diabetes management is on the way.
