Howdy diabeteskidneydisease! WELCOME to DiabeticConnect!

As far as I know there are no really NEW treatments for Diabetes Mellitus (DM). There are new "wrinkles" in the treatment of DM, but no really new treatments.

Of course Type 1s must still inject insulin in some manner, either with syringes or with insulin pumps, and Type 2s manage their DM with a variety of methods from "diet & exercise" (what I do), to oral medications, to injectable medications like victoza, byetta, bydureon and insulins of various kinds and strengths.

Then there are those who take various herbal suppliments in the attempt to manage their symptoms.

I am wondering why you ask?

I asked you to be my friend, please accept.

I noted you have "kidney disease" in your screen name and I also have that.

I am just on the edge of needing dialysis. Not fun!
