Pros: I've been on this med for 15 years...the first med for my diabetes they gave me. Although I thought it was pretty good, it did the job, and when added with other meds seemed to not upset my stomach. Now the doc has taken it away, and when added 1mg back, my bs numbers are still up in the air. But it does work if you can tolerate it. Make sure dosage is enough for you

Cons: can't think of any side effects I've had, in fact none.....

Overall: It was good, is still good. But I would much rather be on less oral meds and get lantus or humalog to work in my favor

Not a cure all

Pros: Little or no low blood sugar episodes as long as you eat right

Cons: Even when numbers are constantly under control; nothing stops complications; I do NOT believe any med or diet will do that

Overall: Good; except for the inevitable complications of long term type II
