Actos Court Case

While reading up on diabetes control, I read about a recent lawsuit because of the serious injuries caused by Actos. This is an oral medicine for diabetes which studies have shown to cause injuries to the heart, like heart attack and heart failure.

In addition, Actos has also been found to increase the risk of bladder cancer, hence the Actos lawsuit. The chemical name of Actos is Pioglitazone and it is sold under multiple trade names, besides Actos: ActoplusMet, Competact and Duetact.

It's best that all diabetics consult their doctors to see what medication they are being prescribed with to ensure that they are not taking Actos unknowingly.
