failing to produce insulin
failing to recognize the production of insulin. Type II diabetes occurs more commonly in the Hispanic, Native American,
and Asian populations. Seeing the enormity of the issue encourages medical
physicians to seek and develop easier forms of medicine or insulin monitoring.
One such newly developed drug is
Actos. Actos, medically known as
pioglitazone hydrochloride, is available in a small white tablet—an oral anti-diabetic medicine.
Actos acts as an insulin control in the body allowing insulin to be produced
and accepted by the body’s cells. Although developed to treat diabetes
in a non-invasive manor, Actos has caused issues and diseases in many
of the patients who took the drug. Patients taking actos between 2 and
5 years may have
developed bladder cancer,
according to reports and extensive
FDA testing. For more information on Actos, and to read the FDA’s warning, click
After taking Actos, unexpected side effects that suggest bladder cancer
include painful urination, bleeding while urinating, blurred vision, an
increase in appetite or weight gain, upper chest pain, and other general
ailments or pains. If you experience any of the above side effects and
have taken Actos for an extended period of time, please seek medical attention
People who developed bladder cancer while on Actos are now seeking legal
action in a
class action lawsuit. Such
pharmaceutical cases suggest
manufacturer’s liability because of inaccurate warnings associated with Actos failing to mention
the potential risk of cancer.
Cancer is a serious matter, with not only medical side effects, but additional
emotional and mental distress to patients suffering from the disease.
