If this is the case I will be asking for Afreeza if I can't bring my blood work levels down. Those pills have some real concerning possible side effects like itching and swelling of the private parts and foul smelling discharge. Who wants to get involved with that. The only encouraging thing about the pills is weight loss is noted. I want the easy way if I can't control this problem.
I'm truthfully not educated enough and would like to think that I'm going to control it without any medications. If I cant make changes to blood work in 3 months I will be doing a lot of homework. I lets myself go (gained way too much weight and heavy beer drinker).
My A1C score was 6.6 with my blood sugar fasting 118. He prescribed Invokamet 50-500 MG tabs twice a day. I'm sure my PCP is not well educated for treating diabetics, he told me to check my blood twice a day when taking the pills- Never even asked if I had a meter. Its all fast food medicine now days and I noticed the office has 4 to 5 drug pushing reps going in and out every time I make a visit, they prescribe what their pushing I'm sure. I have not started taking the pills yet but they are free. My co-pay was paid by a program they have for at least until the end of the year. I'm in denial and will wait 3 months to see if diet and exercise brings my levels down. Point being if they get pushing Afreeza to PCP Doctors they will prescribe it. I have a feeling PCP Doctors are not well versed in handling Diabetics. My father is going to a Endo that has prescribed 2 scrips for Afreeza (as previously posted) and I believe that they are the ones who have knowledge on how to treat Diabetics- I'm sure I'm not a candidate for Afreeza but I believe the first line of treatment for someone just diagnosed should not be Invokamet. But that's why they call it a practice-They
practice on you
