DIABETES MEDICATIONS LINKED TO CANCER, HEART CONDITIONS

People suffering from type 2 diabetes can use pills to help manage their disease. Diabetes medications, when used with meal planning and exercise, can help lower blood glucose levels. Diabetes drugs do not work for everyone suffering from diabetes, and sometimes the drugs will stop working after extended use. In addition, insulin may still be required in certain cases even when taking diabetes medications.

There are several different kinds of diabetes drugs, including:

  • Sulfonylureas
  • Biguanides
  • Meglitinides
  • Thiazolidinediones (Actos, Avandia)
  • DPP-4 inhibitors (Januvia, Onglyza)
  • SGLT2 inhibitors (Invokana)
  • Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors
  • Bile Acid Sequestrants
  • Incretin mimetics (Byetta, Victoza)

SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH DIABETES MEDICATIONS

Side effects vary depending on the type of diabetes medication and the method. Here is a small list of some of the common side effects found in diabetes drugs:

  • Nausea
  • Skin rash and irritability
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Dangerously low blood sugar levels
  • Digestive issues
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Yeast infections
  • Flatulence
  • Constipation

The following diabetes medications have been linked to additional severe and potentially fatal side effects:

  • Actos
  • Avandia
  • Byetta
  • Invokana
  • Januvia
  • Onglyza
  • Victoza

DANGEROUS DIABETES MEDICATIONS MAY CAUSE LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES

People suffering from diabetes can achieve an increased quality of life by taking diabetes medications. Unfortunately, some of these drugs have been linked to catastrophic injuries and illnesses, causing irreparable damage and even death. Pharmaceutical drug manufacturers sometimes fail to reveal the extent of the risks posed by these drugs in order to make a profit.

If you have sustained an injury or illness after taking a diabetes medication, you may be entitled to compensation. Here are a few severe, life-changing conditions that may occur after taking certain dangerous diabetes drugs:

  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Ketoacidosis
  • Pancreatitis
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney failure
  • Heart attack

IF YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED BY A DIABETES DRUG, CONTACT OUR EXPERIENCED LAWYERS

Pharmaceutical drugs are prescribed to help people treat conditions and recover from injuries. The last thing that people should expect is to be further injured or maligned after taking a drug — especially a drug that they were told would be safe to consume. Sadly, every year Americans suffer life-altering and fatal injuries and illnesses due to the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. Diabetes medications are not immune from this charge. Patients taking these medications have been diagnosed with various cancers and serious cardiovascular problems.

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.

A tort is a civil wrongful act committed by a person or company that results in harm to another person. A mass tort is when multiple victims are injured by the same single tort.

A court will consider if a mass tort lawsuit is permissible by determining:

  • whether a large number of plaintiffs are involved
  • whether the plaintiffs are located near or far from each other;
  • whether the injuries sustained are similar among the plaintiffs;
  • whether the claims arose from the same cause (defective toy, car part, oil spill, etc.)
  • Defective products, such as car parts, toys, or other consumer goods.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs, such as those that are later linked to severe or fatal health consequences
  • Environmental hazards, such as polluted water sources contaminated by nearby industrial sites or an oil leak.

Thousands of lawsuits across the country may be filed with a mass tort. These lawsuits are filed in numerous federal district courts. In a mass tort, federal judges will consolidate the thousands of lawsuits into a single proceeding. One judge in a single federal district court will oversee litigation, allowing for consistent rulings and a more expeditious process for the plaintiffs.

In a mass tort, each plaintiff (injured person) has an individual claim resulting from their unique damages. In a class action, many plaintiffs are considered collectively. Similarly, in a mass tort, each individual’s claim “value” is unique to the severity of their injuries. In a class action, plaintiffs generally suffer injuries of similar severity, resulting in the same amount of compensation value.

If you have been injured or suffered illness due to a recalled drug, having an expert witnesses can be essential to proving your claim. Thomas J. Henry has spent decades building professional relationships with leading experts including:

  • Pharmacologists
  • Toxicologists
  • Regulatory Compliance Consultants
  • Forensic toxicologists
  • Drug Injury Causation Experts
  • Biomechanics
