Diabetecs read - possible cancer casuing stuff in some Metformin

Post by BHT » May 27th, 2020, 8:04 pm

My mother is a diabetic and sent me this link.

"(Reuters) - The U.S Food and Drug Administration said on Wednesday it had found high levels of a possible cancer-causing impurity in some versions of the popular diabetes drug metformin.

The agency is reaching out to companies whose drugs had N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) over accepted levels and will take appropriate action, a spokesman for the FDA said in an emailed statement.

Bloomberg, which first reported the FDA's findings, said that some recalls of metformin were expected as soon as this week, citing a person familiar with the matter.

Online pharmacy Valisure said in March that its independent tests showed high levels of NDMA in metformin made by 11 companies, including Amneal Pharmaceuticals Inc and Aurobindo Pharma Ltd.

In December, the FDA had started an investigation into metformin, a drug is used as an initial treatment for patients with type 2 diabetes.

NDMA contamination was responsible for the recall of heartburn drug Zantac sold by Sanofi SA last year and some generic versions of the" treatment last year.

Why I am so against taking any medication unless absolutely necessary, I am a type 2 was that drug. It is probably the most used type 2 diabetes drug in the world. I watch what I eat, exercise, stopped drinking and smoking and have mine under control for over 10 years.

Diabetes affects a lot of people, my grand father does self injections of insulin for years. It also kills millions around the word every year. If they found a cure for it so many lives would be spared.

Every one knows a family member, friend, co-worker of someone they have met who is diabetic. Diabetes is a very common disease which is not helped by drinking smoking life style or food we eat.

This has been widely reported but how much do they really know about cv, that's the question.
