Diabetes Medications

Diabetes medications do nothing to heal or prevent diabetes. They only attempt  to treat symptoms - namely blood sugar levels.

All drugs must be processed by the liver and excreted from the liver through the digestive system and the kidneys filter any harmful substances out of the blood.

That's why there are so many drugs with kidney/liver damage listed as possible side effects.

All drugs are toxic to the human body, some are just worse than others and the drugs that do have warnings on their labels, have the warnings because there is enough evidence against harmful effects that it cannot be denied. That doesn't mean drugs without warnings have no danger.

The Failure of Diabetes Medications

Metformin: These diabetes pills are the most common drug prescribed for diabetes. Side effects noted with this drug are:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Cramps
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Lactic acidosis (rare) build up of lactic acid in the blood and can be fatal

Metformin is designed to slow the absorption of carbohydrates in the intestinal tract and also to increase insulin sensitivity.

Glyburide: Stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin. This drug can be so effective at stimulating insulin production that you need to carry glucose pills in case your blood sugar drops too low. 

The problem with this approach is that you end up with high insulin damage, which is one of the effects of diabetes.

With diabetes, your pancreas is overworked producing insulin and this drug forces your pancreas to work harder producing more insulin. This speeds up the time when your pancreas gives up completely and you have type 1 diabetes.

A holistic approach can help to correct what has gone wrong and repair damage done by diabetes. That's the failure of diabetes medications. They address only the blood sugar symptom.

More Medications (Injection)

GLP-1 receptor agonist medicines, also called incretin mimetics, are a type of injection based medicine for type 2 diabetes. This medicine is based on the action of hormones called incretins. One type of incretin in your body, called GLP-1, causes your pancreas to produce more insulin after you eat and helps keep blood sugar levels in the normal range.

These medicines (exanatide, dulaglutide, lixisenatide and liraglutide) mimic the action of GLP-1 made by your body. The effects of GLP-1 only last for a few minutes, but GLP-1 receptor agonists medicines can last for hours or days.

These diabetes medications are injected under the skin on your abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. Depending which type of this medication you use, it is injected either once or twice daily, or once weekly. GLP-1 receptor agonists are used either alone or with other diabetes medications

Side effects noted with theses medications are:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting 
  • Diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness

Some of these side effects can also indicate serious health problems such as pancreatitis (inflammation of then pancreas).

Remember, making your pancreas produces more insulin when it's already tired, is just bringing disaster closer.

Amylin Analog Diabetes Medications

These diabetes medications are also injected and affect digestion. They slow the absorption of carbohydrates and help control the release of glucogen from the liver.

These drugs are injected before a meal and are used for type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Common side effects are:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Hypoglycemia if taken with insulin


Also, remember that insulin is a synthetic drug. Since 2006 all insulin in the USA is the synthetic, manufactured version.

At one time it was a natural extract from the pancreas of animals, but now it's manufactured, so it will also have some toxicity in the body. Excess insulin levels also cause premature aging and faster cell death.

These manufactured insulins mixed with other substances to delay absorption, adjust insulin PH to reduce reaction at the injection point and preservatives. Any guesses as to how healthy these preservatives are. Since the Pharma companies don't freely divulge that kind of info, you usually have to do some research to verify it.

There are four types of insulin:

  • Rapid acting - starts working in 10-15 minutes but only effective a short while.
  • Fast acting- for controlling blood sugar during snacks/meals.
  • Intermediate acting - controls blood sugar between meals and overnight. 
  • Long lasting - good for most of the day, sometimes longer.
