Was watching a news program a week or so ago and they were talking about some new wonder drug being tested in Europe. Unfortunately I didn’t catch the name of it. On the surface, the drug seems to be what is truly meant by ‘wonder drug’ (they used that term several times in fact). The drug not only lowers blood pressure and the bad kind of cholesterol, but it also lowers a diabetics resistance to insulin (this is the primary use for the drug, from what I could gather) AND helps with significant weight loss.
Can anyone tell me what the drug is called, and maybe some details about it and how the testing in Europe is going? I presume that, regardless of the testing there, the US would have to test it independently, so it would be years at the least before it’s available here, but my wife is a diabetic so I’m interested in any information about it.
