Do You Know How Dangerous Actos Treatments Really Are?

December 18, 2011

For diabetes patients, Actos (pioglitazone) is the miracle drug that isn’t. The pros are clear. Actos reduces insulin resistance in the liver, increases the expense of insulin-dependent glucose, decreases the withdrawal of glucose from the liver, and reduces the quantities of glucose in the bloodstream, among other benefits.

 

Its cons, however, are equally stark. Actos side effects includes an increased incidence in upper arm fractures, elevates the probability of congestive heart failure, and cause anemia. Most notably, however, Actos (pioglitazone) has been shown to substantially increase the risk of bladder cancer for patients who take Actos longer than 12 months.

 

Patients are free to take medical risks. However, drug manufacturers aren’t free to offer dangerous drugs to medical practitioners, patients, and consumers without appropriately researching and disclosing the risks. Unfortunately with Actos, recent medical research has revealed that for some patients the risks far outweigh the benefits. Tragically, these revelations have occurred after some patients have taken Actos for years.
