From Big Bear City, California, USA:

I recently have been diagnosed with Type 2, and have been given Prandin [a pill for Type 2 diabetes]. Does it cause weight gain?


Not to any appreciable extent that I'm aware of. But better control of the diabetes might cause weight gain unless you stick closely to the meal plan!
