Diabetes drugs have been linked to life-threatening pancreas swelling

by , 17 April 2013

Scientists at Johns Hopkins University recently discovered that sitaglipton and exenatide, the active ingredients in a new class of diabetes drugs, could DOUBLE your chance of developing a painful and life-threatening condition - pancreatitis.

In the study, researchers compared nearly 1,300 patients taking these drugs with the same number of patients who were using other diabetes treatments. What they found was frightening.  
 
The diabetic patients on these drugs had twice the risk of developing pancreatitis - a debilitating swelling of the pancreas that can cause life-threatening complications if not treated.
 
The symptoms of pancreatitis include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever and low blood pressure. And, over time, it can even lead to pancreatic cancer.
 
How could such potentially dangerous drugs have been brought to market and prescribed to millions of people?

One of the study’s authors explained that prior to the FDA’s approval of the drugs, “important safety findings may not have been fully explored.” But, when the drugs were tested on animals prior to approval, some of their pancreases swelled up!

So what actually happened?
 
The truth is you and I will probably never find out the truth. The important lesson here is don’t count on the FDA or the pharma industry to watch out for your best interests. You must look out for yourself. If you’re taking these drugs, make an appointment to see your doctor and talk about the risks. And, if you’ve been taking these drugs and are suffering from abdominal discomfort, seek medical attention right away.
 
In the meantime, there are some safe and natural methods for lowering your blood sugar. Like these:

Treat Diabetes with Common Cinnamon?!

Treat diabetes with Common Cinnamon??!!

Someday soon the threat of diabetes type II could be wiped out for millions of people. Because Dr Wright has shown us how we could overcome and prevent it, using nothing more costly than table cinnamon.

This isn't some exotic variety, but the stuff that’s already in your cupboard!

Up until recently, type II diabetics thought they had no choice but to pay through the nose for prescription drugs. Side effects from these drugs include extreme weakness, muscle pain, trouble breathing and even heart arrhythmia.

But now, Dr Wright’s patients and readers have learned...

Success could be as simple as saying sugar & spice.

How? It turns out that cinnamon contains a very powerful nutrient called methylhydroxychalcone polymer – MHCP for short. And new research has shown that MHCP closely mimics human insulin.

Better still, it helps your own insulin control blood sugar much more efficiently. Dr Wright will show you exactly how he used this incrediblly easy breakthrough in Nutrition & Healing.

Even more importantly, you’ll learn how to spot a tendency that hasn’t yet become full-blown diabetes. (Just a glance at your skin could tell you if you’re “programmed” for diabetes.) And Dr Wright will show you how to keep the disease away forever.
