    Drugmakers’ Payments to U.K. Health Groups and Doctors Climb 25%

    Post by graham64 on Sun Jul 02 2017, 23:05

    Drugmakers in the U.K. led by AstraZeneca Plc increased payments to local health-care organizations, doctors and other workers by 25 percent last year,with most of that money going toward research and development, voluntary disclosures by the recipients showed.

    The spending climbed to 455 million pounds ($590 million) last year, according to a report on Friday from the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, which collects the data. Cambridge-based AstraZeneca had the highest expenditure, at 56 million pounds, said Karen Borrer, head of reputation at the lobbying group.

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
