                                • Lowers A1c levels by 0.5-0.8%. (Hemoglobin A1c measures your average blood sugar over time.)
                                • Uses the hormones naturally produced by your body to affect how sugar is processed.
                                • Unlike some diabetes medicines, it's unlikely to cause weight gain and low blood sugar.
                                • You don't have to check your blood sugar every day with this medicine.

                                • Lowers A1c levels by 1% (A1c measures your average blood sugar over time.)
                                • Prevents the harmful effects of high sugar levels on your organs.
                                • Has a lower chance of causing low blood sugar than medications like glyburide or insulin.
                                • Can lower your appetite by making you feel full. Some people also lose weight when taking Byetta (Exenatide).
                                • Byetta (Exenatide) is not a replacement for diabetes pills, but you may be able to use it alone without the need for pills.
                                • The injectable “pen” has easy to use doses which you may find more convenient than other types of injections.
                                • Lowers A1c levels by around 1%. (Hemoglobin A1c measures your average blood sugar over time.)
                                • Rarely causes low blood sugar.
                                • Might be a better choice for people with kidney problems compared to similar drugs because Glipizide isn't processed by the kidneys.
                                • Lowers A1c levels by 1-2%. (Hemoglobin A1c measures your average blood sugar over time.)

                                • There's a higher risk of low blood sugar episodes than with other kinds of oral diabetes medications.
                                • Most people will have nausea, stomach upset, or diarrhea in the first few weeks. You can lower these symptoms if you take it on a full stomach.
                                • People with poor kidney function can't use Glucovance (Metformin / Glyburide).
                                • Can't drink excessive amounts of alcohol or “binge drink” while taking this.
                                • Can cause some weight gain.
                                • Not as strong as other diabetes medicines. Your doctor might add it to your blood sugar-lowering regimen if your sugar levels are still too high.
                                • Likely expensive since there's no generic version available.
                                • Some people might get frequent throat infections or nasal congestion.

                                • Most people will have nausea, indigestion, or diarrhea in the first few weeks. You can minimize this if you take it on a full stomach.
                                • People with poor kidney function can't use it.
                                • Only works if your body can still make your own insulin, a hormone that tells your body what to do with sugar, protein, and fat.
                                • Not as strong as other diabetes medicines. Your doctor might add it to your blood sugar-lowering regimen if your sugar levels are still too high.
                                • Likely expensive since there's no generic version available.

                                • Only lowers A1c levels by 1%, which may not be enough to get your blood sugar in the safe range.
                                • Byetta (Exenatide) must be injected twice a day.
                                • Up to 40% of people taking Byetta (Exenatide) have upset stomach and side effects like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, or indigestion.
                                • Because Byetta (Exenatide) can interact with antibiotics and birth control pills, you can't take it until one hour after these medications.
                                • Other diabetes medications work as well and are cheaper.
                                • May take several weeks to lower blood sugar.
                                • You have to check your blood sugar regularly with this medicine.
                                • Has more side effects than similar medicines, so it's usually not the first choice for new Type 2 diabetes patients.
                                • More likely to cause weight gain (2 to 6 pounds or more) compared to other blood sugar-lowering medicines.
                                • Up to 1 in 10 people might get fluid retention (edema), ranging from mild ankle swelling to severe swelling in the lungs that makes it hard to breathe. People with severe congestive heart failure shouldn't use Actos.
                                • Raises the risk of bone fractures, especially for people who already have a risk for fractures.
                                • Slightly raises the risk of bladder cancer.
                                • Food can cause unpredictable effects of the immediate-release version of Glipizide, so you have to take it at least 30 minutes before a meal.
                                • Higher risk of low blood sugar episodes than other kinds of oral diabetes medicines.
                                • You have to check your blood sugar 2 to 5 times a week (less often once you are on a stable dose).
                                • Can cause mild weight gain (2 to 3 pounds).
                                • Loses effectiveness over time or as your body stops making insulin.
                                • Not preferred for people 65 years or older since it can cause prolonged low blood sugar (more than 12 hours).
                                • Not a good choice for people with kidney problems because it's processed by the kidneys.

                                • It's best to check your blood sugar at least once a day using a home blood sugar monitor to make sure your medication is working and is safe. Some people may need to test more often, ask your doctor.
