My friend says there is a new medication to treat diabetes type what is it?

Non-insulin injectio. New injectables are available. Some side effects are weight loss. Here is link http://my. Clevelandclinic. Org/disorders/diabetes_mellitus/hic_non-insulin_injectable_medications. Aspx.
Several. There are several new medications for diabetes and diabetes related conditions. One of the newer classes of medications for diabetes are the dpp-4 inhibitors, e.g. Linagliptin and sitagliptin. A new dpp-4 inhibitor being tested by merck is not on the market yet, but this one is very interesting since it is only given once a week, see: http://sgoti. Ws/odqsit.
