How to Manage Diabetes through Nutrition and Avoid Dangerous Medications

diabetespicture1 How to Manage Diabetes through Nutrition Guest PostMedications are often a vital element of effective diabetes management.

The type 2 diabetes medication Actos can increase the risk of bladder cancer by as much as 83 percent, according to one study. This dangerous side effect has altered the lives of Actos patients now suing the drug’s manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, creating thousands of Actos Lawsuits.
