Diabetics Type 2 Treatments – Side Effects

• Have you noticed that so many of the pharmaceutical medications (Tradjenta) don’t combine well with other medications?
• Have you noticed that so many medications (Metformin) can and do lead to death?
• Glucophage – Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); chest pain or discomfort; dizziness or light-headedness; fast or difficult breathing; feeling of being unusually cold; fever, chills, or persistent sore throat; general feeling of being unwell; muscle pain or weakness; slow or irregular heartbeat; unusual drowsiness; unusual or persistent stomach pain or discomfort; unusual tiredness or weakness. This is not a complete summary of all side effects that may occur.
The list just goes on and on with nightmarish side effects that no one should have to deal with. Aren’t you sick and tired of not feeling well? Gaining weight? Low Energy?
You can take charge – not meaning fire your Doctor – but you can get informed and take action.
There are alternatives that you can begin, while you take the harsh, harmful pharmaceuticals!
You can take the alternative, until you see results. What results you may ask? Well, wouldn’t it be nice to eliminate the fluctuations? Wouldn’t it be nice to see your body rejuvenate and metabolize sugar (glucose) properly? Wouldn’t it be nice to off “the pills”?
To summarize – With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin – a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells – or doesn’t produce enough insulin to maintain a normal glucose level. Untreated, type 2 diabetes can be life-threatening.
I have become somewhat of an expert only because my daughter and my father both died of T2 Diabetes. I’ve cried and screamed.
Type 2 diabetes symptoms may develop very slowly. In fact, you can have type 2 diabetes for years and not even know it. Look for:
• Increased thirst and frequent urination. As excess sugar builds up in your bloodstream, fluid is pulled from the tissues. This may leave you thirsty. As a result, you may drink – and urinate – more than usual.
• Increased hunger. Without enough insulin to move sugar into your cells, your muscles and organs become depleted of energy. This triggers intense hunger.
• Weight loss. Despite eating more than usual to relieve hunger, you may lose weight. Without the ability to metabolize glucose, the body uses alternative fuels stored in muscle and fat. Calories are lost as excess glucose is released in the urine.
• Fatigue. If your cells are deprived of sugar, you may become tired and irritable.
• Blurred vision. If your blood sugar is too high, fluid may be pulled from the lenses of your eyes. This may affect your ability to focus clearly.
• Slow-healing sores or frequent infections. Type 2 diabetes affects your ability to heal and resist infections.
• Areas of darkened skin. Some people with type 2 diabetes have patches of dark, velvety skin in the folds and creases of their bodies – usually in the armpits. This condition, called acanthosis nigricans, may be a sign of insulin resistance.
Type 2 diabetes develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin or when the pancreas stops producing enough insulin. Exactly why this happens is unknown, although excess weight and inactivity seem to be contributing factors.
