Type 2 diabetics get new drug!

Post by valerie »

The FDA has approved a new drug for Type 2 diabetics. It's called

Byetta.



Makers Amylin Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly and Co. said the prescription

drug would begin selling June 1st.



And get this, gang, the drug is derived from the SALIVA OF THE GILA

MONSTER.



Wow.
