Obtaining Diabetes Drug Lawsuit Compensation
Diabetic drugs such as Byetta, Janumet, Januvia and Victoza fall into a class of medications known as incretin mimetics. These medications help to stimulate the insulin in the pancreas to help the patient better manage a dignosed type 2 diabetes condition. However, hundreds of plaintiffs are filing lawsuits against the manufacturers of these medications, claiming that the drugs cause adverse side effects and increases the risk of developing thyroid cancer, kidney complications and acute pancreatitis that can later lead to full pancreatic cancer.
According to the American Diabetes Association, over 25.8 million adults and children in the country are currently living with diabetes, 7 million people have yet to be diagnosed and 79 million individuals are in the pre-diabetic stage. With such drastically high numbers, it is no wonder that diagnosed diabetes cost over $245 billion in 2012 alone. Manufacturers are attempting to capitalize on the demand, creating medications to help patients manage their condition. However, studies, consumers and the healthcare community cite mounting evidence against these drugs, claiming that they are not safe for patients and that manufacturers neglected to identify and communicate the potential dangers and life-threatening side effects of their products in order to increase their own profits.
In fact, in one instance, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration asked one manufacturer to submit to further testing after receiving nearly 100 adverse event reports associated with the diabetic drug and while the manufacturer originally agreed, the company failed to follow through, showing just how devoted it was to the well-being of its consumers. There are currently no recalls of these medications, yet plaintiffs are still seeking compensation from the manufacturers for their injuries.
