Are diabetes medications from the space?

Most of the times, any new drug especially derived from the vegetables (plants) take the attraction of people with diabetes more than the scientists. They believe those what we prescribe are chemicals and so more toxic and the rest in the environment even if it is a fish captured from a certain liver and swallowed even while it is alive, may solve all the issue. I think all studies with special plant or so forth will include an explanation such as toxicology, side effects with an ignorance of the idea that plants have no adverse effects, etc. Metformin which is used many many years ago as French lilac must also be emphasized. Drugs and their origins (sulphonylureas) also should be mentioned. These are not the proof that I am against the natural herbs or on the side of chemical or genetically produced substances, but I am rather trying to be realistic and logic. In the study how a streptozotocin induced diabetes mice model might be a good fit for type 2 diabetes not type 1 should be explained clearly.
