Drugs have the ability to lower your blood Sugar count, which will make your doctor very happy. But your pancreas won't be as pleased. It will continue to wear itself out until every one of its insulin-producing beta cells is destroyed unless you improve your eating and lifestyle patterns and heal the damage that inflammation has already caused.
It's important to note that everyone loses beta cells as a natural part of the aging process, but for most people this loss isn't critical. However, it's a different story for a person with type 2 or insulin resistance. Scientists now know that insulin resistance is the primary killer of insulin producing beta cells, which speeds the development of diabetes and worsen its consequences.
