For many people with diabetes, taking medicine to control their blood glucose levels is a daily requirement. Sometimes these medicines are taken two or three times a day, usually before meals, in order to keep glucose levels stable. For people with moderate to severe diabetes, surviving without this medicine is not an option. That is why the links between diabetes medicine and severe medical conditions are so troubling.
Diabetes medication such as Byetta, Bydureon, Victoza, Januvia, and Janumet have been linked to pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis. These drugs are very popular for the treatment of type II diabetes. They are prescribed to millions of people around the world, but diabetes drug lawsuits suggest that diabetes drugs such as these pose a greater risk for patients than previously known.
Many people have filed diabetes drug lawsuits claiming injuries from the type II diabetes drugs Januvia, Victoza, Janumet, Byetta and Bydureon. Cases in some states have reached such a volume that courts have grouped them together for discovery purposes.
Clinical Studies on Diabetes Drugs
Clinical trials related to diabetes drugs have been performed throughout the world. Certain studies show that patients regularly taking certain diabetes drugs were more likely to develop pancreatitis.
Other tests conducted have proved inconclusive. The FDA’s latest clinical trial showed no definitive link between these drugs and pancreatic cancer. However, they urged caution in relation to the drugs and demanded further investigation from the manufacturers of the medications.
