Diabetes News and Medicines

Often in the media, there will be news on new diabetes medicines available for diabetes treatment. It is important to understand that although there may be a new diabetes medicine on the market, it may not be appropriate for YOUR specific diabetes treatment. If your diabetes is currently under control, there may not be any need to try newer medicines. Only the doctor treating you will be suited to evaluate any new diabetes medicines available for your diabetes treatment.


Diabetes News and Diabetes Supplies

As technology continues to evolve, there will continue to be news stories about new diabetes testing equipment and new tests for measuring the success of your diabetes treatment plan. Usually new diabetes testing equipment will have features that improve usability, not necessarily results.

At Life with Diabetes, we try to sort through the new equipment on the market and bring you news on the equipment that may uniquely affect your diabetes treatment. No matter what you read about how great a new piece of testing equipment might be, it is important to remember to evaluate the equipment from the standpoint of usability, insurance coverage, and cost to operate. For more information on what to consider when choosing a new glucose monitor go to our page on glucose meters.

Diabetes News and Alternative Treatments

There will always be diabetes news featuring alternative, "natural" treatments that promise to have a positive impact on managing your diabetes. There are many good natural remedies that may aid to the success of your overall treatment plan. That being said, prior to trying any natural remedy, it is critical to discuss it with the doctor treating you.

There are many cases where so called "natural remedies" may negatively interact with the medicines prescribed by your doctor. It is a good general rule of thumb to discuss any treatment methods you are considering with your doctor first. Your doctor will be able to guide you through what is real diabetes news.

At Life with Diabetes, we strive to bring you important diabetes news that may have a unique impact on your diabetes care. We encourage anyone that is interested in any of the diabetes news provided at Life with Diabetes to always check with your doctor for his/her medical opinion.
