The Problem with Pioglitazone

Pioglitazone-based treatments for Type 2 diabetes, such as the drug Actos, attempt to provide a solution for suffering patients. The trouble is that they also can cause serious problems.


Specifically, after about one year of taking Actos, a notable number of patients have reported a dramatically increased probability of experiencing bladder-related issues, including bladder cancer. One study determined that the risk spike for these Actos patients was as high as 40 percent. As a result of these kinds of findings, health agencies in Germany and France have worked to prevent patients from receiving Actos.
