5. Don't make hasty judgments
The trial that was stopped used medications to decrease blood sugar levels. There is a big problem with Avandia and heart disease, for example. Even using insulin in Type 2 is problematic because it can cause hyperinsulinemia--another risk of heart disease.

I don't have a study to prove this, but I am thinking that it would be helpful, rather than harmful, to use non drug methods to decrease blood sugar levels in Type 2 diabetes. Anything that can minimize the amount of all types of medication seems as if it would be helpful.

At the very least, be careful not to draw conclusions from this that are too broad.
