Doctor Says Diabetes Mainly Gets Worse Even Though Patients Are Being Treated With Drugs

Type II diabetes is a major problem in the US. Almost 26 million people have it, but a lot of them don’t even know that they do. Diabetes can cause many health complications, including heart disease, which can end up resulting in death.

Type II diabetes used to be called adult onset diabetes but lately it is showing up more and more in children. Already the US has spent $245 billion on healthcare costs associated with diabetes, which has increase by 41% in the last five years. It is estimated that by the year 2020, diabetes will have used $3.35 trillion in healthcare expenses over the last decade.

Unfortunately if you are diagnosed with diabetes, you will be told to take medication such as Metformin, lose weight, and come back in six months for a check-up. The medications often do not work, or if they do, they have severe side effects that may include cancer. They are expensive and the dosages are frequently changed. Patients are not given nutrition information but instead they are given a prescription and sent on their way. When the medication fails, the only option left is insulin injections every day.

According to Dr. William Cole, who is trained in Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition, “At the heart of the propaganda machine is the pharmaceutical industry, which spends 19 times more on self-promotion than they do on actual research. The medications given are anything but magic pills, all having negative side effects and some being linked to bladder and pancreatic cancer. Not designed to heal, the medications typically have to be increased in dosages until no other option is left but to go on insulin.”

There is no solution that will fit everyone but the diagnostic medicine needs to be changed. The levels of sugar in your blood should be investigated, not covered up with medications and ignored. This ends up costing more over the long run as the medications that are expensive and don’t work only cover up other problems that may be existing. Once these other problems become worse more money needs to be spent to take care of these now worse conditions. It is a vicious cycle.

  1. What in the world would you say that.I live in Nashville Tennessee and we have great Doctor’s that really care about their patients .So redo your research.My grandfather lived until he was 82 years old.You’re not a good doctor for anyone.That’s just how I feel.You leave people guessing about their health.Really Really.

    • Vickie I hope you really know Doctors that do not have the pharmaceutical industry in their pockets I have found that we should do our own research after a Doctor told me that I was to damn healthy. I am on no medications I learned that I must learn to lead myself in my health and try to watch every thing I put in my mouth.

  2. This is a great subject to get into. I see so many people who are taking medications for diabetes and then undoing it all with a poor diet. Or worse, a starvation diet that’s full of high glycemic foods. They lose the weight like their doctors are recommending but their skyrocketing their blood sugar and making it inevitable that they’ll gain even more back a few months later. It might take doctors generations to make the changes but websites like this can make things better for their readers. Well done.

    • I agree with you Rob, we must learn how to regulate our own diets because,no one really cares about us we should stop with the salt, starches, red meat, greasy food, like fried chicken, bread,get on veggies and make sure that we concentrate on keeping our systems cleaned out on a daily basis and drink plenty water, not soda and other sweet drinks, cleanse,cleanse, cleanse.

  3. Diabetes was very high in my community, I decided to take matters in my own hands. After being diagnose borderline diabetic. I’m healthier, stronger, and slimmer. Check out my website: Booksbyrobynhowzell.com
    My grandmother was a diabetic, and I watched her for years taking insulin. I wish I knew the seriousness of diabetes. Perhaps, I’ve could have help save her life.

  4. I was diagnosed with diabetes about 3 months ago. And I’m going to be honest, I was put on metformin, lantus and novolog. I do not take my medications like they tell me to. My sugars remain in the low 100’s (105 to 120’s) I watch what I eat and I exercise and I have been thriving as far as weight loss. Never been a biggie on medicine because of the long term effects but I see no reason to take them except when I really have to, since I’m managing well without them.
