I have diabetes, can I take the diet pill Adipex? It seems that just about every day, week, or month out of the year, a study comes out that links type 2 diabetes to obesity. Sadly, it also seems that each time that the results of one of these studies is printed, a diet drug company is right there to offer the answer to every one's prayers. These drugs claim to cure your obesity by just swallowing a simple pill or two every day. Sadly, there are even doctors out there that are more than willing to jump on this bandwagon. But, are there any FDA regulated diet drugs on the market that are safe for diabetics to take?
