Avandia, or rosiglitazone, is a popular anti-diabetic drug prescribed to help patients control their sugar levels. Millions of type II diabetes patients take Avandia to help control their blood-sugar levels. Avandia, which is the world’s best-selling oral diabetes treatment, is linked to a higher risk of heart attacks among patients. In addition, Avandia has been linked to:
- Heart disease
- Bone fractures
- Eye damage
- Liver damage (hepatotoxicity)
Among 15,560 Avandia consumers, 39 people died and 86 people suffered heart attacks from use of the drug. This is compared to a sample of 12,283 diabetic patients in which 22 people died and 72 people suffered heart attacks. Researchers found that there is a 64 percent increased risk of dying from cardiovascular illness while taking Avandia.
