Bowling Green, KY (PRWEB) June 25, 2012
Being diagnosed with diabetes is not only shocking to most, but can be life changing. Taking medication to control diabetes is only one of the many things that must be done when diagnosed as a diabetic. On top of strictly taking medication the diabetic must eat healthy, get regular exercise and do blood sugar tests daily. These four tasks may not seem like a big deal when reading them, but as many diabetics will say, they are. For many diabetics taking a medication, maintaining a special diet and doing regular blood sugar test, is not something they ever had to worry about before their diagnosis. There are many health conscious people that are diagnosed with diabetes every day. These individuals must learn to fit these practices into their daily routine, which can be difficult for many.
Now, not only are some diabetics having to deal with their diagnosis of diabetes they are facing the tragedy of bladder cancer. The diabetes drug Actos was prescribed to approximately 2.3 million people from January 2010 to October 2010. According to the FDA, this medication has been found to increase the risk of bladder cancer by 40%. Some of the most common symptoms of bladder cancer are: blood or red color in urine, urgent need to urinate or pain while urinating, and pain in back or lower abdomen.
The Defective Drug Attorneys at Hughes & Coleman are here to help. We believe in getting justice for all instances of medical negligence; including taking the medication Actos and being diagnosed with bladder cancer. We will work hard to get the compensation that is deserved.
Unfortunately, there are millions of people suffering from diabetes and from cancer in the United States. But there are ways to help them cope with these devastations, such as support groups. Support groups can be a great way to help understand the diagnosis and speak freely, as well as ask questions. For more information on finding a support group in the area visit the websites below:
The Defeat Diabetes Foundation website has a website where support groups can be found. The American Cancer Society website also has a website where support groups can be found.
