Diabetes DrugDiabetes Drug, Investigation of diabetes drugs has become a priority for many scientists recently but there was a setback yesterday when the FDA voted not to approve a drug for diabetes called dapagliflozen produced by Myers Squibb Co. and AstraZeneca. The FDA expressed concern about the potential risks of cancer and wants more research to be carried out before giving their seal of approval.

Although researchers will undoubtedly continue the search for a diabetes drug safe and effective until they are successful, people will rely on existing information and treatment options in the meantime. Fortunately, there are plenty of food-related researches that can be used to reduce the risk of diabetes, as well as some benefits for people who are already diabetic, too.

Here are five dietary remedies:

1. Dairy: The study found that consumption of trans-palmitoleic acid (TPA) could help prevent type 2 diabetes. While the TPA does not occur naturally in the body, found in many dairy products.

2. Berries: Berries are rich in antioxidants, which have been found to prevent the growth of cancer cells, reduce the risk of heart disease, and yes, even reduce the likelihood of having diabetes.

3. Grains: One study found that whole grains have the ability to help diabetics improve their heart health. Even if you are diabetic, you can still enjoy the benefits of whole grains: the same study found that whole grains can reduce your chance of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

4. Leafy greens: If you need another reason to add vegetables to your diet, here it is: recent research claims that green leafy vegetables may reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

5. Cinnamon: Cinnamon does wonders for your blood sugar, and has even been found to lower cholesterol levels in diabetics.
