FDA Cracks Down on Products Claiming to Help Fight Diabetes

Agency argues that they do not


U.S. health regulators are cracking down on 15 companies for selling products they said falsely claim to cure or mitigate the symptoms of diabetes.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sent letters last week to 10 domestic and five foreign companies, warning them that their products violate the law.

A total of 20 products are covered by the warning letters. In some, treatments are being sold as "natural" when in fact they contain pharmaceutical ingredients, the FDA said.
