Benicar villous atrophy lawsuits are being filed for consumers who took this dangerous medication. Benicar is a drug used to lower blood pressure.
There have been increasing complaints about Benicar causing villous atrophy. Benicar blocks receptors on cells that bind to a protein called Angiotensin II that increases blood pressure.
By a mechanism that is not fully understood, Benicar causes villous atrophy. This occurs when the cell lining the intestine shrinks. Cells in the intestines are designed to have a large surface area to absorb nutrients. When that surface area shrinks, the ability to absorb enough nutrients to meet the body’s demands is impaired. This causes diarrhea because the nutrients not being absorbed pull water through the gut. This can also lead to rapid weight loss in some individuals. People can be on Benicar for months or years before suffering and are often misdiagnosed with celiac disease.
