A study published in the medical journal Cureus shows that an increasing number of orthopedic devices created for the ankle or foot are being fast-tracked for approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This lowers the amount of glucose in the user's bloodstream.

Transvaginal mesh: Complications are possible
