Ill-Fortune Following Actos Intake

Having diabetes can have extremely negative impacts in your life. It dictates what you can and cannot eat, as well as the need to regularly intake prescribed medication for your medical condition. It is the most unfortunate of circumstances then, therefore, when it is the medication for this health complication is the reason for more unnecessary struggles in your life.

Take Actos, for example. Actos is a drug that is commonly known to treat people with Type-2 diabetes, also called as ‘non-insulin dependent diabetes’ and is the most commonly known diabetes in the United States. Left untreated, this illness could be the cause of heart attacks or severe dehydration due to the misplaced glucose in the body. Actos is meant to countermand that but there have been studies that have shown that this drug meant to aid might also be causing severe harm.

According to reports gathered on the website of the lawyers of Williams Kherkher, there have been some recent studies that have showed a correlation between people who have taken Actos and then developed bladder cancer as a direct result of taking the medication. News like this can be devastating for anyone involved as it was also stated that many had believed this drug to have been a safer alternative to that of Avandia, another drug also meant to treat people with Type-2 diabetes.

Development of cancer due to a hazardous drug is a defect within the formulation of the drug, ergo the manufacturers are liable to answer for the side effects that this pharmaceutical has caused. Cancer treatments are known to have a scarring impact in the life of the victim and the victim’s family as it is the birth of complications of just about every nature, severely altering the livelihoods.

If you or someone you know is currently going through a similar situation, or has developed bladder cancer due to having taken Actos, it is advisable for you to contact legal aid immediately.
