New Diabetes drugs have gnarly side effects!

New diabetes drugs?  ... they have some gnarly side effects! 

The promos want to make it look like low sugar levels are the worst side effect of the new class of diabetes drugs - however according to drugs dot com, there is a rather long list of gnarly side effects... including .... Anxiety, bladder pain,bloody or cloudy urine, blurred vision. chills, cold sweats, coma, confusion, cool, pale skin, decreased frequency or amount of urine, depression, difficult, burning, or painful urination, dizziness, fast heartbeat, frequent urge to urinate, headache, increased hunger, increased thirst, itching of the vagina or genitals, loss of appetite, lower back or side pain, nausea, nightmares, seizures, shakiness, slurred speech, swelling of the face, fingers, or lower legs, thick, white vaginal discharge with mild or no odor, troubled breathing, unusual tiredness or weakness, vomiting and weight gain.

You might want to skip this class of drugs!  The side effects seem worse than the blood sugar levels it is said to lower...
