Do You Know about the Risks of Actos?

November 19, 2012

For patients struggling to deal with Type 2 diabetes, solutions can be hard to come by. Sadly, what many patients think Actos (pioglitazone) is and what Actos actually is are two very different things.

 

Yes, Actos can be an important part of a patient’s arsenal when it comes to dealing with the effects of diabetes. However, Actos is not without its own serious risks. In particular, medical studies have found that patients who take pioglitazone-based treatments for longer than 12 months face a considerably higher likelihood of bladder illness. In fact, the probability of developing bladder cancer is as high as 40 percent in some patients.
