Avandia, a compound of rosiglitazone maleate, is an oral antidiabetic agent. Avandia pills increase insulin sensitivity for patients with type two diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes. Avandia also improves glycemic control as it reduces the circulation of insulin levels. If diet, exercise, and a single drug aren't enough to control glucose levels, Avandia can be used in combination with another drug.
Avandia isn't to be used for type one diabetes (juvenile onset diabetes) or diabetic ketoacidosis. It's questionable whether individuals with heart failure, fluid retention, or active liver disease should take Avandia whatsoever. It is a case of severe medical malpractice and hence the manufactures could be caught for this. Since Avandia became available there have been reports of the evolution of hepatitis (the inflammation of the liver) due to elevated liver enzymes. Patients monitored.
Furthermore, Avandia is in the same class of drugs as Rezulin, a very dangerous drug that's been associated with catastrophic liver damage such as liver failure that can only be cured with the transplant. Without the immediate transplant, many Resoling liver failures have led to death.
Due to this close association with a harmful drug, users of Avandia should maintain close contact with a physician if they notice any signs of liver problems such as nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, fatigue, dark urine, or jaundice. Avandia is also very dangerous for pregnant women and their unborn children.
Additionally, it is advised, in the event you suffer from the use of Avandia, to consult an attorney. The current proliferation of dangerous drugs to the market is a troubling trend, and if a medication threatens your health you should be reimbursed for damages and the drug should be taken off the market.
