Drug therapy can bring a complexity to a diabetic’s healthcare and every day life as there are many different types of drugs that work in different ways to help keep blood sugar under control. Diabetes therapy can be broken into two broad categories: non-insulin glucose lowering agents and insulin therapies. Depending on the severity of the disease, you can be prescribed a combination of a few different classes of diabetic therapies. There are some cases where one medication is enough, but others where in order to control your blood sugar multiple therapies must work together. It is important for diabetics to understand what types of medications they are prescribed. For more information, please find ProAct’s Pharmacologic Therapy Guide for Diabetes Mellitus linked.
