Severe Pancreatic Risks Linked to Byetta & Januvia
Byetta and Januvia are prescription drugs used to treat patients with type 2 diabetes by regulating their blood sugar levels. However, both drugs have been associated with a higher risk of pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) by 10 times as well as the development of two cancers: pancreatic and thyroid cancer. Pancreatic cancer is among one of the most difficult cancers to treat.
Researchers at UCLA have discovered that Byetta and Januvia are associated with cellular changes in the pancreas, causing the an accumulation of pancreatic cells by 40%. Such changes can serve as precursors for cancer.
Warning labels on the drugs failed to give detailed information regarding the severe dangers linked to these drugs. This signifies that thousands of consumers aiming to treat diabetes instead put themselves at risk for a disease even more fatal, cancer.
