Avandia

Diabetes is a serious disease that can lead to stroke, blindness, heart attack, amputation, kidney failure, and death. In 2006, the Texas Diabetes Council reported that an estimated 1.3 million Texans who are 18 years old or older have been diagnosed with diabetes. For Texans, diabetes was also the sixth leading cause of death in 2002 through 2004.  Unfortunately, Avandia (rosiglitazone maleate), a popular drug prescribed to treat this serious disease, can seriously harm diabetic Texans.

Widely prescribed to treat Type II diabetes, the most common form of diabetes, Avandia has now been linked to a significant increase in heart attacks. A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed a significantly increased risk of heart attacks and heart-related deaths in patients taking Avandia.  The risk is even greater for persons with known underlying heart disease or who are already at high risk of a heart attack. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a safety alert on Avandia, which is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, and urges patients to contact their physicians.
