Diagnosis of Type II Diabetes

Jan 9, 2008
If you or a loved one have Type II diabetes and were recently given an Avandia diagnosis that led to the contraction of symptoms associated with the drug, you automatically have a right to an attorney. These symptoms are almost entirely preventable, and your manufacturer bears the primary responsibility. For this reason and because your symptoms may be life-threatening, it is urgent that you find an Avandia lawyer and tell him or her your current situation. Be sure that you are able to recall as much important information regarding your Avandia diagnosis as possible.

You may find it helpful to contact your local elected officials for advice on selecting your attorney. For example, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has successfully limited the availability of Avandia, concluding that there are safer alternative drugs toward the same purpose. Avandia's manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline (or Glaxo), has come under fire for its dishonesty in withholding black-box warnings from its drugs and there has been very recent action to enforce this standard.

Avandia is now available only to patients who have a prescription to validate their Avandia diagnosis. There are recent statistics to explain why these changes were made: You and about 6 million other Avandia patients globally have a 43% increased risk of heart attack and a 64% increased risk of dying from a cardiovascular condition.

While an Avandia diagnosis is meant to assist patients with Type II diabetes, the symptoms Avandia may contract tend to make the diabetes even worse than before. It can worsen hyper- or hypoglycemia, or you may be one of some patients who contract allergic reactions. However, the symptoms linked to Avandia chiefly concern cardiovascular problems including heart attack, and these are the most likely to threaten your life. Patients who are willing to take on Avandia's risks should at least be able to do so after being warned specifically about them; and this is why your Avandia diagnosis may warrant a lawsuit.

In order to prosecute Glaxo, you should select at least three ideal candidates who have the appropriate education and experience to properly handle your claim. Any evidence you are able to present will help speed up the process (typically a very lengthy one) of giving you the full compensation you deserve. Your attorney may be able to fight for your compensation from both your physician and your manufacturer, depending on whether or not your physician took proper steps during your Avandia diagnosis.
