Multiple Diabetes Drugs Linked to Serious Health Complications

by Staff Blogger | June 25th, 2018

Type 2 diabetes can be a debilitating health condition that can cause a wide variety of complications, including stroke, kidney disease, and high blood pressure.

There are many drugs designed to help people with Type 2 diabetes manage their blood sugar levels, but several are linked to serious health problems of their own.

Those drugs include:

  • Onglyza®
  • Byetta®
  • Januvia®
  • Janumet®
  • Tradjenta®
  • Victoza®
  • Invokana®
  • Invokamet®

Some of the dangerous conditions linked to those drugs include an increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer, heart failure, and ketoacidosis—a condition that causes high levels of acid to buildup in the body.

At Berg Injury Lawyers, we know that Type 2 diabetes medications can be lifechanging and even life-saving for many patients, but we also know that there have been many reports and studies linking them to severe health complications.

It’s important to never stop taking a medication without first speaking to your doctor, but if you suspect that you’ve been injured by a drug, including any of the Type 2 diabetes medications listed above, getting in touch with a California drug injury lawyer can help you protect your rights to compensation.
