Why It’s Important to Know about the Risks Associated with Actos
A Type 2 diabetes diagnosis can be scary and challenging. In addition to new and unusual physical symptoms like more frequent infections, fatigue, and hunger, a patient must also learn how to manage his or her symptoms and treatment. Of course, many patients also end up taking a variety of medications, too.
It’s important to note that one of the common medications for Type 2 diabetes, Actos (pioglitazone), carries with it the potential risk of serious side effects. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in fact, medical research has shown that prolonged exposure to Actos treatments can increase the risk of several health conditions. Specifically, for patients who take Actos for 12 months or longer, the risk of developing bladder cancer rises by an astonishing 40 percent.
