Diabetes Mine: Wherefore Art Thou, Galvus and Januvia?

Diabetes Mine: Wherefore Art Thou, Galvus and Januvia?

First off, thanks again to Diabetes Mine for this great find.

The gist is two new drugs are coming out to help in combating Type 2 Diabetes, Galvus and Januvia. these new drugs are two fold medications. They have the effect of increasing pancreas creation of insulin, and simultaneously lover the liver's sugar production. This is in line with our bodies natural functions. Both drugs are in review by the FDA.

Amy Tenderich, Diabetes Mine blogger, mentions the upcoming battle for the global diabetes market. The numbers surprised me. $15 billion this year alone.

My big question? Is my employer in on diabetes research? If not, why not?
Your diabetic blogger friend,
Tojosan
