Don't Take the Cheap Way Out

Pay close attention to the products you are purchasing if you're diabetic.

There are many unapproved websites that the feds are constantly taking down, that claim they are selling legal prescription drugs, supplements and creams. However, the ingredients in the products may not be approved by the Food and Drug Administration.


"Whether they're diabetic or not, going online and getting medications from pharmacies that they just have to walk in and pick them up off the counter needs to be very very careful about that," said Dale Colee from Dale's Southlake Pharmacy in Decatur.


In June, the feds shut down more than 1,600 online pharmacies for selling illegal prescription drugs. Many of these sites imitated major brands like CVS and Walgreens.
