Understanding diabetes medications can be very difficult and confusing.
Many new medications are now available that provide very tight control of your blood sugar
when used in combination with other medications or with insulin.
It is important that you completely understand what each medication that you take is
for and any special precautions you should take when using a particular medication.
Our Diabetes Educators have a thorough understanding of the use of your medications
and are familiar with new medications being released onto the market. If you have questions about
your medications, always ask your pharmacist, doctor, or educator to help you.
