FDA Warns Consumers Not to Use Dr. Ergin’s SugarMD Advanced Glucose Support, Found to Contain Prescription Drugs

On November 3, 2023, the FDA warned consumers not to purchase or use Dr. Ergin’s SugarMD Advanced Glucose Support products after FDA laboratory analysis found the supplement to contain glyburide and metformin.

Glyburide and metformin are prescription drugs used to lower blood sugar and treat type 2 diabetes and these products in combination with certain medications can cause unsafe drops in blood sugar levels, or hypoglycemia, or lactic acidosis. Consumers should immediately stop using these products and seek medical attention, especially if they are currently being treated with diabetes drugs, have chronic kidney disease, or if they have symptoms of fatigue, body aches, abdominal pain, excessive hunger, profuse sweating, or numbness of the extremities.

Dr. Ergin’s SugarMD Advanced Glucose Support products are promoted for blood glucose management and sold on the company website, and possibly in some retail stores.

The FDA has advised that anyone who has taken these products should consult with their health care professionals to safely discontinue use.

Consumers and healthcare providers can report any adverse reactions to the FDA’s MedWatch Voluntary Reporting Program.
