FDA Approves New Diabetes Drug
With Type 2 diabetes on the rise in the U.S., especially among African-Americans, the FDA has expanded its treatment by approving Invokana, a new diabetes drug. This Johnson & Johnson owned medication works by having blood sugar exit the body through one’s urine. Possible side effects include slightly raising bad cholesterol and an increased risk of heart disease.
