I take a raft of pills for my various medical issues. Two to keep my blood pressure under control, two doses of steroid (which is why I'm T2 as I've been on them for many years),One times 4 twice a day to keep my transplanted liver from going off, the obligatory daily aspirin and yes I'm still taking a statin. Also I take Gliclazide for my T2 Along with these you may be suprised to know that I take an anti depressant as well. A couple of hefty painkillers top off the list. However, whilst perusing the patient info leaflet of one pill I saw that it contains sugar as well as the active ingredient. Curious, I checked all the others and found that they all contain sugar of some sort, even the Diabetes med. Now I'm sure the pharmas don't put things in their pills for fun so why? Someone out there must know.
