A new study shows some diabetics may be endangering their health with the very drugs they're taking to preserve it.
Diabetics are often prescribed drugs that boost the amount of insulin their bodies produce.
Insulin helps our bodies to break down sugar, and diabetics often don't have enough but a report says those drugs may put their hearts at risk.
Now, scientists are re-evaluating their suggestions for treating diabetes as studies into the drugs' effects continue.
