About Avandia and Associated Side Effects
Avandia is a medication prescribed to individuals with type 2 diabetes and is used to increase the body's ability to absorb insulin. Insulin regulates the body's blood sugar level, and people suffering from diabetes will experience an insulin deficiency due to insufficient production or absorption of this important hormone. To date, Avandia has been prescribed to more than six million people worldwide. Unfortunately, Avandia has also been linked to serious and potentially deadly side effects.
There are numerous side effects from taking Avandia, including
- Swollen feet and legs;
- Blurred vision;
- Low blood sugar;
- Weight gain;
- Cold or flu-like symptoms;
- Liver problems; and
- Heart failure
People with a history of heart or kidney problems are at an increased risk of serious injury or death.
