In brief: Short term

Fastin is phentermine, indicated for the short-term assistance in weight loss efforts.
Make sure your blood pressure is under control first. Weight loss will help blood sugar control, but so will a low-carb, prudent, diabetic diet along with a regular exercise program. You can get more weight loss by adding onglyza/bydureon/januvia, depending on your need for a1c reduction.
