Are Your Parents on Actos?

May 6, 2012

Did you know that more than 25 percent of Americans over the age of 65 have diabetes? Although a relatively small percentage of the overall American population, these 10.9 million patients represent almost half of America’s type 1 and type 2 diabetes sufferers.

 

Actos (pioglitazone) is a commonly prescribed anti-diabetes medication. As a way of managing diabetes effects, Actos succeeds. However, the side effects of Actos can be so severe that many Americans consider Actos a failure. In particular, patients who ingest large cumulative amounts of pioglitazone – in general, treatments lasting longer than one year – have reported a significant increase in the incidence of bladder cancer.

 

Tragically, given that older Americans often represent the nation’s Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes population, many of these patients do not carefully monitor their symptoms or realize that the physical changes they experience may represent side effects. Symptoms like bloody urine or abdominal pain may reflect something considerably more severe than just the ailments of old age. It could be evidence of Actos-induced bladder cancer.
