What You Need To Know About Incretin-Based Diabetes Drugs
Diabetes drugs such as Victoza, Janumet, Januvia, Byetta and Onglyza may increase the risk for developing pancreatic cancer.
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition affecting approximately 27 million people in the United States. While there are several types of treatment for type 2 diabetes, incretin-based diabetes drugs are 9 billion dollar business and are prescribed to thousands of people each year. They work to stimulate insulin secretion in the body and are used along with diet and exercise to regulates blood sugar in the body. While these generally are effective drugs for its intended purpose, there is a rising concern about an increased risk for pancreatic cancer among those who take incretin-based drugs.

Pancreatic Cancer Detection and Symptions
As the name suggests, pancreatic cancer forms within the pancreas and generally spreads very quickly. Unfortunately, it is difficult to detect in its early stages. If you’ve taken incretin-based therapies such as Bayetta, Januvia, or Janumet for your type 2 diabetes, you may be at a higher risk for pancreatitis and/or pancreatic cancer.
Symptoms of pancreatic cancer include the following:
Pancreatic cancer occurs when cells within the pancreas develop mutations in the DNA. Taking incretion drugs such as Januvia, Janumet, Onglyza, Byetta, Bydureon and Victoza for Type-2 diabetes or Saxenda for weight loss could greatly increase your risk for pancreatic cancer. We don’t want to see anyone needlessly suffer from this terrible form of cancer, especially at the hands of deceptive and negligent drug manufacturers.
Lawsuits filed within MDL 2452 claim the manufacturers of these drugs “willfully, wantonly and with malice withheld the knowledge of an increased risk of pancreatic cancer in users of the Drugs to prevent any chances of their products’ registration being delayed or rejected by [the] FDA.” This failure to warn may have cost the lives of thousands of innocent people.
