7. My father-in-law
had side effects from the Diabetes pill. It gave him a kidney infection. Don't remember which one it was. He's having big problems now with his toe and an infection. They have him only on Insulin in the hospital.

It should be important to find out what is bad and what is good for Diabetics since our country has a epidemic of Type II now. Why is that?

There are side effects of Insulin such as weight gain (some have Type I from weight gain). Other drugs can cause Diabetes too such as HRT (makes women gain weight, etc.). No drug is really that safe. Look up the side effects, etc. before taking any drug even if the doctor recommends it. You are responsible for your own care in the end.

Bio-identical HRT for women is the safest yet they are trying to ban it from the market. I'd rather take that then horse urine extract. They've been using it in Europe for years. The inventor of BHRT gave it to women free so there is no patent or high cost for drug companies. Call your representative to stop the ban by pharmaceutical companies.
