What is it?

If you have type 2 diabetes, you may need medication to help manage blood sugar levels. There are lots of medications available. Your GP will help you find the most suitable medication based on your individual health status.

Common medications for diabetes include tablets and injections. It’s important to know that medication doesn’t replace a healthy diet and exercise. You will still need to take care of your health and monitor your blood sugar levels.
