Here’s Why Insulin Is So Expensive – And What You Can Do About It

Marie Beaugureau - February 08, 2018

The numbers are in: U.S. spending on diabetes drugs increased from $10 billion to $22 billion per year between 2002 and 2012, according to a recent study.

Roni Shye - January 16, 2018

If you’ve ever been afraid to show up at your doctor’s office because you’ve been “bad” then this post is for YOU!  You may think your doctor is “pushing medications on you” especially if you aren’t experiencing any symptoms of the condition they are treating you for.

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.

Of course, tight blood sugar control is the goal for reducing diabetes related complications (kidney disease, eye disease, neuropathy) but insulin remains one of the most challenging aspects of diabetes management given the risks. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 13, 2015

You probably already know that many prescriptions have side effects. Most are mild—annoying issues like nausea or sleepiness that are inconvenient at worst. Others, however, can be deadly.

A very small number of medications are responsible for the majority of adverse side effects and hospitalizations from harmful drug reactions. How bad are these drugs? Between 2007 to 2009, almost 100,000 patients older than 65 had emergency hospitalizations for dangerous drug reactions, and almost 20,000 people die from prescription drug overdoses annually. See More
