Latest Diabetes Treatment Reviews

Glipizide


Glipizide and Onglyza

Pros: I am on both of these. When my sugar is higher then the range the doc wants it in he has me take a glipizide to bring it down. Onglyza is easier on the Kidneys.

Cons: Glipizide is a short acting Having to take any of it.

Overall: I have been in kidney failure once due to the diabetes, blood pressure, and my Crohn's Disease because I was so dehydrated and yet I was swelled from all the pressure that the diabetes and blood pressure had put on me.

Beta Blockers


Atenolol/Lisinopril

Pros: Both are good at lowering bp Lisinopril protects the kidney function and Atenolol is good for controlling chest pain,

Cons: Having to take one in the morning and one at night the Atenolol will make you sleepy

Overall: Taking the both of them have kept my bp down for years and I am doing better then I have in a while.
