The Wall Street Journal
Fewer American doctors are treating patients enrolled in the Medicare health program for seniors, reflecting frustration with its payment rates and pushback against mounting rules, according to health experts.

FDA: NEW TREATMENTS & TECHNOLOGY


FDA warns diabetes patients of hazards of illegal treatments
Medical Daily
The Food and Drug Administration has sent warning letters to 15 companies urging them to stop selling treatments which violate U.S. laws and also may cause harm to diabetes patients — leading to complications like heart disease or kidney failure. Because diabetes affects such a large number of the American population, the companies marketing illegal treatment for the disease aim to cash in on the epidemic — labeling dietary supplements and prescription drugs as diabetes medication without getting it approved by the FDA.
