Rimonabant in Diabetes: This weight-loss, anti-smoking drug targets multiple risk factors in diabetics
 
In this trial, individuals with type 2 diabetes were randomized to receive either 5 mg of rimonabant, 20 mg of rimonabant, or placebo. All patients were on non-insulin diabetic therapy (metformin or a sulfonylurea drug). The group taking the higher dose of rimonabant had the greatest reductions in weight and waist size. Their hemoglobin A1C levels were significantly decreased, a finding which reflects improved glucose control. They also had significantly improved HDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and reduced systolic blood pressure.

I'm sorry about your mother in law, Heidi. I want to ask my dr next month when I go see her about this!

I was not able to make the link work. I'm not sure why. It was found at about.com in the heart disease topic area. In fact I've tried to edit this three times using various links. Perhaps it's because I'm logged in. Honestly I have no clue why this is happening. However, I'm sure you can find it at the main website if you do a search.

I read in my Diabetic Forcast mag. that diabetics are at a higher risk of strokes and heart attacks.

I am diabetic with heart disease. I in fact had two heart attacks and a mini stroke.

I am doing better and monitor my bp three times daily.

I am also a diabetic, jtu91952. I had one and hope there will be no more. How long have you been diabetic? Are you taking medication or insulin?
