From Lexington, Kentucky, USA:

If a person has type 2 diabetes, can they take the weight loss pill called Natronex 3? Can a type 2 diabetic take regular weight loss pills or only the diabetic weight loss pills?


In general, patients with type 2 diabetes have been evaluated for their response to the approved weight loss medications currently approved for use in the U.S. It makes sense that if you lose weight, you would have a better response to your diabetes. In fact, that has been shown. However, there are only two medications approved in the U.S. Your physician should discuss with you the appropriate clinical use of these medications. In many cases, having type 2 diabetes, is an indication for use.
