Type 2 Medications

Diabetes, also known as diabetes mellitus, is a chronic medical condition that affects the body’s ability to utilize glucose for energy. In this condition, the blood sugar level remains high as the body is unable to use the insulin it produces effectively.

When this occurs, an excess of sugar remains in the blood. Left unchecked, high blood sugar can lead to the development of serious problems like kidney and heart disease, as well as vision loss. Unfortunately, 20% of people with diabetes may never know they have it.

It is important to note that not all people with type 2 diabetes will experience symptoms, and some may not experience symptoms until the condition has progressed.

It is recommended to check your blood sugar regularly to screen for type 2 diabetes. You may be at risk of developing diabetes if you have risk factors such as being overweight or having a family history of diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes has several commonly experienced symptoms, including increased hunger and thirst, frequent urination, blurry vision, fatigue, cuts and sores that heal slowly, and frequent viral or bacterial infections.

However, not all people with type 2 diabetes recognize or experience these symptoms. As a result, you’ll need to test your blood sugar levels and screen for diabetes with a medical professional to reach a definitive diagnosis.

Yes, you can get type 2 diabetes medication with an online prescription from a licensed healthcare provider. You can also refill your type 2 diabetes medication through CallonDoc.

Prescription medications should only be obtained with a valid prescription from a licensed healthcare provider or board-certified clinician. During your online consultation, a doctor for diabetes will review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and determine the best treatment plan for you.

Medications prescribed for type 2 diabetes are based on individual factors such as medical history and symptoms. The following medications are typically prescribed for type 2 diabetes:

Metformin: Lowers blood sugar levels and improves insulin sensitivity.

Sulfonylureas: Stimulate insulin production from the pancreas.

DPP-4 inhibitors: Increase insulin production and lower blood sugar levels by blocking the activity of a specific enzyme.

GLP-1 receptor agonists: Increase insulin production and lower blood sugar levels by mimicking the effects of a specific hormone.

SGLT2 inhibitors: Lower blood sugar levels by preventing the kidneys from reabsorbing glucose.

The first-line treatment for type 2 diabetes involves lifestyle changes and metformin medication. Lifestyle changes can include:

Dietary changes: Eating a healthy low-sugar diet with a focus on food groups like whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and low-fat dairy products. Avoiding sugary drinks and processed foods.

Exercise: Regular exercise for at least 30 minutes a day.

Weight loss: Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight can improve blood sugar levels.

These factors can help to lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. In some cases, supplemental insulin therapy may be needed if blood sugar levels cannot be controlled by lifestyle changes and oral medication. However, this is usually reserved for later stages of the disease.

Type 2 diabetes cannot be cured and typically requires lifelong management. However, with appropriate treatment and lifestyle modifications, it is possible to control your diabetes effectively and prevent or delay further complications.

An individualized treatment plan should be developed in consultation with a licensed healthcare provider to ensure that it is the appropriate treatment for your diabetes symptoms and medical history.

Diabetes type 1 and type 2 are two different forms of diabetes mellitus. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells. People with type 1 diabetes require lifelong insulin replacement therapy and may require the use of an insulin pump. Type 2 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to effectively use insulin or produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes can often be managed with lifestyle modifications, oral medications, or insulin therapy.

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious complication that affects people with diabetes when their body produces high levels of ketones.

Ketones are chemicals that the body produces when it breaks down fat for energy because it is not getting enough glucose (sugar) from the blood. These ketones can build up in the blood and urine, leading to several symptoms and potentially life-threatening complications. A doctor will advise you to test your urine for ketones regularly
