New Class of Diabetic Medications

An estimated 29.1 million people in the United States suffer from diabetes.  That is nearly ten percent of America's entire population!  The diagnosis rate has shown a steady incline in the past decade.  With such staggering numbers and so many in our population effected by diabetes it is no wonder that pharmaceutical companies/medical researchers come up with new ways of managing diabetes.  Our countries health depends on it!

No doubt there is a stigma attached to the word "diabetes" which, for many, includes visions of insulin, needles, finger pricks, pain and expensive treatment.  Luckily a diagnosis of diabetes doesn't always mean that the patient will be insulin resistant.  With Type 2 diabetes in particular, oral medications can be used as the first line of defense again the havoc that diabetes can wreak on the body.

Oral diabetes medications come in different forms and are used in different cases depending on a patient's individual needs.  Like any name brand medication there are often times unwanted side effects that can be as daunting as dealing with the illness that they intended to improve.  Two of the side effects commonly associated with oral diabetes medications are hypoglycemia and weight gain, and the fluctuation of blood pressure.

Fortunately, there is a new class of medication for Type 2 diabetes called D-pp4 Inhibitors.  D-pp4 inhibitors help improve glucose levels without causing hypoglycemia and weight gain.  They also, have a neutral effect on blood pressure. This class of medications include the brand name medications Januvia(Merck Pharmaceuticals), Onglyza(Astra Zeneca), Tradjenta(Boehringer Ingelheim), and the newest addition is Nesina(Takeda Pharmaceuticals).

As a full service advocate company, Rx Access offers assistance with these medications for those who are uninsured or underinsured.
