Stranger Danger; whatís in your medicine bottle? Tags: medicine bottle medical marijuana diabetes mmj

Despite growing awareness of the dangers of harsh, synthetic medications and treatments, the majority of the public are still banking on the promises of cure via chemical interventions.

Unfortunately, these avenues can result in unforeseen and equally serious conditions.

The public puts a lot of trust in our healthcare professionals, so if the doctor or revered celebrity spokesperson recommends it, who are we to argue? Especially if the drug does a quicker job than a natural remedy, as time is money and quick fixes are eagerly sought-after.

Of course, chemical medicine provides a means to an end for certain illnesses Ė chemotherapy being a good example. Many people see this a price worth paying, whereas other cases are not so balanced and patients end up resentful and in more discomfort than before.

One of the most egregious examples of this bad trade-off is Actos. Actos is a Thiazolidinedione. Itís a bit of a mouthful, but letís break it down.

Thiazolidinediones are a class of medication claimed to improve the symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes sufferers by balancing sugar levels in the blood cells; therefore decreasing the need for insulin supplementation and easing symptoms of uneven blood sugar levels in the patient.

Takeda Pharmaceuticals produced one strand of this medication, pioglitazone, and marketed it under the name of Actos.

Scary fact: since 1980, the number of people recorded with symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes in America alone has quadrupled, and though the utilization of insulin supplements in the 1920s and government efforts to decrease the sale of sugary foods has helped, there is still a huge problem.

Available only on prescription, Actos was the most popular treatment for Type 2 Diabetes with 3.4billion sales in 2009, and for a short time, seemed harmless.

Consumers of the drug had a nasty shock, however, when French researchers found there was a link between Actos (or similar variants such as Actoplus Met or Duetact) and bladder cancer. †

Now patients are having to rely on their Actos attorney to claim compensation for a number of side effects, including Edema, Hypoglycaemia, heart and liver problems, brittle bones, increased ovulation and many more. Click here for more information on Actos Lawsuits from Napoli PLLC.

Although various European countries went so far as to recall the drug, - the FDA did not. The association did enforce a labelling change, to highlight the risks, but it fell on deaf ears for many people, who were already taking Actos regularly and wouldnít notice additional content on the side of the bottle.

Who can blame people for not checking the bottle? We all know that eating fast food every day could pose risks to our health, and we are likely to accept these consequences. However, if medicine is meant to make us better, then why is it making us worse?

When you are faced with a debilitating illness, the best thing you can do is research treatment choices before you consult your family doctor on the best treatment. It may be that you canít go natural in every case, but you should weigh your options.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a condition as a result of poorly advised treatment from a doctor or an independent retailer, you should take immediate action. Itís never too late for that. †
