This Class of Drugs Causes Almost 100,000 Annual Emergency Visits

Dr. Sharon Orrange - June 07, 2016

Insulin: legal, widely used, and transforms lives. But there are risks—soon you’ll see why we try to spare our type II diabetics from having to start insulin. Using oral medications to their maximum dose and incorporating diet and lifestyle changes is the way to go before resorting to insulin.
