ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Most drugs come with unwelcome side effects. But thereís a new drug for Type II diabetes that has some patients rushing out to buy a smaller wardrobe.
The first thing you might notice about Tilly Dewey is her clothes are too big.
"But I noticed that my pants started to turn and I had to pull them up and turn the waistband down to make them fit," Dewey explained.
What you wonít see so easily is Deweyís long battle with Type II diabetes.
"Iím suffering the effects of uncontrolled blood sugar and Iím working the hardest I can to get it under control. I donít want to go blind," Dewey said.
As an elementary school librarian, Dewey needs all the energy she can muster. And now, after years of struggling with diabetes, her blood sugar is finally under control. And thatís not all.
"Iíve lost over 24 pounds, and boy was I surprised," Dewey added.
