As on http://diabetes.niddk.nih.gov/dm/pubs/insulinresistance/
Several drugs have been shown to reduce diabetes risk to varying degrees. No drug is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat insulin resistance
or to prevent type 2 diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends that metformin
is the only drug that should be considered for use in diabetes prevention. Other drugs that have delayed diabetes have side effects or haven’t shown long-lasting benefit. Metformin use was recommended only for very high-risk individuals who have both forms of pre-diabetes (IGT and IFG), have a BMI of at least 35, and are younger than age 60. In the DPP, metformin was shown to be most effective in younger, heavier patients.
If we expect FDA would approve Alternative routes we are mistaken. Drug centric regime driven more by Profits than anything else.
has anyone tried Gymnema Herb? DM2 is all about Engineered Oils and Fats and a epidemic
introduced in society by profit hungry so called "Food industry".
