In our local paper they did an article on diabetes 2 supplies and medications doubling from 6 billion to 12 billion in a five yr period, they said pasrt of thereason was more people are being diagnosed, but also Doctors are prescribing newer more expensive drugs that do not have genericsNnd they question wether the newer drugs are any better than the ones we have been using for years,but it will take years to find out, so is it the drug companys are feasting on the newer patients and trying to get the patients that have been on the older drugs to switch to the new wonder drugs, Or are they just trying to get rich on a disease that is spreading in this country
