The Problem with Pioglitazone

March 6, 2013

Pioglitazone-based treatments for Type 2 diabetes, such as the drug Actos, attempt to provide a solution for suffering patients. The trouble is that they also can cause serious problems.


Specifically, after about one year of taking Actos, a notable number of patients have reported a dramatically increased probability of experiencing bladder-related issues, including bladder cancer. One study determined that the risk spike for these Actos patients was as high as 40 percent. As a result of these kinds of findings, health agencies in Germany and France have worked to prevent patients from receiving Actos.


If your loved one has taken Actos for a prolonged period of time and experienced unusual symptoms such as bladder cancer, it may be time to call the dedicated professionals at the law firm of Fears Nachawati.
