Avandia Linked To Heart Attacks.

Posted Feb 20 2010 12:42pm


It should surprise no one in the health or medical field that the diabetes drug Avandia is linked to an increased risk of heart attacks (at least, not after Steven Nissen’s 2007 study of Avandia).  Unfortunately, for most doctors, Plan B is to simply prescribe another drug.

“Don’t worry about the Avandia scare, Mrs. Jones; here, just take Actos or Glynase instead.”

Until some “rogue independent researcher” publishes a meta-analysis showing those drugs will kill you as well, that is.

There is an alternative solution to this problem.  Beware: It’ll require some critical thinking on your part.

1) Understand and acknowledge the role insulin resistance has in diabetes.

2) Understand which foods and foodstuffs raise insulin levels.

3) Avoid eating said foods and foodstuffs.

4) Move around a little bit.  It’d be better if you exercised. It’d be even better if you strength trained.

There you have it.  No 342 page report or dubious drug prescriptions required.
