Attention Seniors! Diabetes Drug CAUSES Heart Attack

There are all kinds of reasons why you don’t ever want to develop type 2 diabetes.

If the possibility of going blind or having permanent nerve damage don’t scare you… the meds your mainstream doc will use to treat the disease certainly should.

You see, most diabetes drugs come with serious side effects like amputations and stomach issues.

But that’s not the worst of it.

Because new research shows that two common diabetes drugs can put you on the fast track to a deadly heart attack or stroke.

And one of them could be in your medicine cabinet right now.

The extreme dangers of diabetes drugs keep showing up in the news.

Just a few months ago, I told you about how the diabetes drug canagliflozin (which goes by the brand names of Invokana and Invokamet) can increase the risk of a diabetic having an amputation.

Now, diabetes drugs have been linked to a much more lethal problem.

In a study published in JAMA Open Network, researchers examined over 130,000 patients with type 2 diabetes who were starting treatments with sulfonylureas or basal insulin.

Patients are often prescribedthese drugs after metformin (the first line diabetes treatment) hasn’t worked.

Compared to a newer class of diabetes drug, people taking sulfonylureas were 36% more likely to have a heart attack, heart failure, or stroke.

Even worse? Those taking basal insulin were TWICE as likely.

What good is managing your diabetes if you’re dead?

One study author actually said that “this has staggering implications for how we may be harming many patients.”

You don’t hear that kind of acknowledgement every day.

That’s just one of many reasons why I do my best to help my patients make sure they never have to take diabetes drugs in the first place.

One of the easiest ways to prevent diabetes is by intermittent fasting. This simple eating plan doesn’t involve calorie counting or cutting out everything you love.

Instead, it involves limiting the time you eat during the day to a six-hour window (say, from 8:30-2:30).

One study showed that this simple changeled to increased insulin sensitivity. This translates to better blood sugar control — and a reduced risk of diabetes.

It also led to blood pressure improvements and reduced appetite.

If you DO have to take a diabetes drug, talk to your doctor about taking a newer class of diabetes drug that hasn’t (yet) been connected to an increased risk of heart problems. These would include GLP-1 agonists or DPP-4 inhibitors.

(But NOT SGLT-2 inhibitors – those are the ones that increase your risk of amputations.)
