Diabetes Drugs Pose Side Effects
There are a number of people who have been diagnosed with diabetes among Britons. In order to keep their problem in control, they take diabetes drugs.
But a research carried out by a group of researchers from the British Medical Journal and Channel 4 Dispatches has uncovered that the drugs have severe side effects. The drugs can treat the problem, but poses a number of side effects.
It is assumed that approximately 2.5 million people will be living with type-2 diabetes. In order to keep the condition in control, they take injections having hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). The hormone encourages the body to produce insulin.
There are drugs as well to treat the problem. Study researchers were of the view that while carrying out the research they have found that many diabetic patients taking drugs have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is considered to be responsible for 1,000 deaths in Britain per year. Another research has also taken place by a group of researchers from University of California, Los Angeles. Dr Deborah Cohen, Investigations Editor at BMJ, said, "When considered alongside other emerging and long standing evidence, a worrying picture emerges, posing serious questions about the safety of this class of drug".
