Drugs that increase the risk for bone fracture
My comments: I am nervous about using new drugs in my practice since we often find out the full range of the dangers or side effects of these medications after they are introduced to the public and hundreds of thousands of people start taking them. For someone who has type 2 diabetes, all attempts should be made to use diet, exercise, herbs and natural supplements before resorting to drugs. I much prefer using the older diabetes drugs such as metformin, rather than the new ones such as Avandia, that have not been proven to be safe.
