Victoza Causing Pancreatic Cancer Lawsuits
One of the serious complications associated with GLP-1 type drugs, including Victoza, is pancreatic cancer.
Many patients who have been prescribed this diabetes medication have been diagnosed with this potentially life-threatening disease. Pancreatic cancer is a particularly troubling cancer as it rarely shows any signs or symptoms of its presence until the tumor has grown large enough to be a life-threatening concern. Pancreatic cancer can also be brought on by pancreatitis.
UCLA researchers determined that GLP-1 drugs increase the mass of the pancreas. Additionally, according to a study published in Gastroenterology, people who take these drugs to help manage diabetes are 2.7 times more likely to develop pancreatic cancer. Although this side-effect of Victoza is well documented, millions of Americans continue to use this drug every day.
Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer
Pancreatic cancer can be present without showing any symptoms. Many times, signs of the disease do not appear until the cancer has reached its later stages. When symptoms do appear, it is important to see a doctor immediately. Here are some of the most common symptoms associated with pancreatic cancer.
- Upper abdominal pain that radiates to your back
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss without reason
- Feelings of depression
- Blood clots
