Pills for Diabetes

Question from Vassar, Michigan, USA:

Will taking Avandia lessen the weight loss on the Atkins' diet for people with type 2 diabetes?

Answer:

I am fairly sure there are no scientific studies to answer that question. Avandia [rosiglitazone] may cause some weight gain so in that sense, it may minimize the weight loss you may have with any diet.
