Dangers of Actos
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in the United States, and it affects millions of people across the country. Those who have Type 2 diabetes are non-insulin dependent, meaning they do not have to take insulin injections in order to maintain their health. People with diabetes have either no insulin, as is the case for people with Type 1, or produce inadequate or malfunctioning insulin, like those with Type 2. Many people took the prescription drug Actos in order to help maintain their insulin production, but almost all were unaware of the drug’s dangerous potential side effects.

Harmful Effects of Actos
Millions of people were warned of the possible harmful effects of Avandia, another prescription drug intended to help with diabetes. As a result, they turned to Actos thinking it was safe, but this drug was found to be just as harmful. Actos has been associated with:
- Bladder cancer
- Heart attack
- Organ damage
If you or someone you know has suffered from any of these conditions as a result of taking Actos, you may be eligible for financial compensation.
If you are now suffering from bladder cancer or other conditions because you took Actos, you should not be forced to cover your related losses alone. Contact the experienced Actos lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling us at 800-641-9810.
