July 1, 2010: Diabetes Drug Avandia Developments

A blog article from June 29, 2010, in the LA Times addressed the recent developments with the drug Avandia. It is explained that in the past week, three studies were released about the side effects linked to Avandia (rosiglitazone), and two found a  potentially troubling rate of side effects.  Avandia was approved in 1999, and some studies have linked it to higher rates of certain adverse events. The drug is known to increase the risk of heart failure and bone fractures but newer data suggest it also raises the risk of heart attacks, strokes and death.  In July a Food and Drug Administration advisory committee will meet to explore Avandia's safety.

The article also mentions that The American Heart Association released advice for people taking Avandia. The association stresses that patients discuss their options with their physicians, but also warns that patients should not stop using the drug without a doctor’s approval.
