Should You Talk to Your Grandparents about Actos?
Diabetes strikes America’s elderly particularly hard. According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 11 million Americans over the age of 65, almost 27 percent of this demographic, have diabetes. And this number continues to rise every year.
The complications associated with diabetes can be serious. Heart disease, high blood pressure, blindness, and kidney problems are just some of the health problems associated with this potentially fatal disease. For patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes, these medical realities can be particularly distressing.
For years, health care professionals have prescribed Actos (pioglitazone) to help Type 2 diabetes patients. However, many suffering patients haven’t realized that longer-term pioglitazone treatments significantly raise the risk of bladder cancer. Poor communication between the manufacturer and patient has led many impacted families to pursue medical product liability actions to protect their loved one’s rights.
