Ozempic: A new treatment for Type 2 Diabetes

As the prevalence of type 2 diabetes increases worldwide, we find that more research is undertaken to help people manage their diabetes well and to prevent complications. A number of new medications have been released in the last 10 years. 90% of the people with Type 2 diabetes are either overweight or obese. We all know that weight loss helps to improve blood sugar control and in some can completely reverse type2 diabetes. In the recent past medications for diabetes are geared to not only reduce blood glucose but also address weight gain.

How Creon Helps Improve Blood Sugar Control?

As we all know achieving good blood glucose control in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes reduces complications. People whose blood glucose control is not good develop complications like heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney problems, amputations and many more. It is therefore important to get blood glucose control within the target range. Most importantly life expectancy is reduced on average by 20 years in people with type 1 diabetes and up to 10 years in people with type 2 diabetes based on a department of health paper (National service framework for diabetes: standards) published in 2001. HbA1C or glycosylated haemoglobin is a measure of blood glucose levels. Ideally HbA1C should be less than 53mmol/mol. However, a significant number of people have poor blood glucose control. We know that people with diabetes, who have poor blood glucose control had complications with corona virus infection (COVID-19). According to one study risk was higher in those with an HbA1c more than 58mmol/mol and mortality/morbidity increased as HbA1c levels increased.
