Yet Another Diabetes Drug May Be Deadly – Here’s How to Avoid It

Yet Another Diabetes Drug May Be Deadly – Here’s How to Avoid It

Another diabetes drug - Onglyza - is now suspected to increase the risk of disease and death.

It's quite possible that the drug really is deadly. This is because diabetes medications for common type 2 diabetes don't address the cause for disease. They are only treating the symptom: high blood sugar.

A gigantic modern study - that many people instantly tried to forget about - showed that intensive drug treatment killed more type 2 diabetics than letting blood sugar run high.

A Better Option

Drug treatment may be worse than the disease itself. It's better to adopt a lifestyle that makes medications unnecessary. Here's my standard recommendation for treatment of type 2 diabetes:

  1. Lifestyle changes: A strict LCHF diet, preferably with the addition of periodic fasting (exercising is a bonus that has a much more limited effect).
  2. If necessary for blood sugar regulation, the addition of the drug Metformin (almost all doctors are using this as a first line of treatment).
  3. If further medication is necessary, the addition of GLP-1 analogue injections (for example the drug Victoza).

Many may do fine with just step 1, lifestyle changes including an LCHF diet. Please note that this is extremely effective, which may quickly make you too well for your diabetes drugs. If, for example, you take insulin injections you may need to lower the dose significantly to avoid hypoglycemia.

As a bonus, lifestyle changes also cause a better weight, better blood sugar regulation and a better cholesterol profile, as well as not suffering drug side effects such as hypoglycemia... or premature death.

Here's all you need to try:
