Message sent. It seems like about every oral diabetes med that comes on the market gets pulled for causing cardiovascular problems. Also, they have dubious value in treating the disease. People get the idea that they can just eat anything, and take a "magic" pill.
Thanks, Nancy.

Maybe I will sign later. I have to think about it. I don't know if it's right for someone who doesn't have diabetes to decide against someone who does have it.

So many medications get approved and prescribed. For most people, the medications are usually safe. However there is a significant number of people who experience extremely serious side effects; some side effects are potentially life threatening.

I do have diabetes and tried the pillswith problems and know many others with issues from them. Big Pharma gets in a Big hurry to get these to the market so they can make Big profits. i only use isulin.
Judy c is right to many think they can take the 'magic' pill and go ahead and eat what they want. Doctors are guilty for not sending them to diabetic nuternational counselors and or making this clear about what they eat. I have a friend that argues this I can just take extra meds 'cuz my doc didn't say otherwise. This actionis a ticking timebomb

I am diabetic and very sick due to it. I would never give in to this drug and there are tons more I wont take. So I am in a horrible place.
Now there are a few more new diabetic medicines I just read about and NO I will not take them. Avandia has been one sick drug ... I know many who refused to take it due to losing family/friends who took it or who became very ill.
The Doctors love to tell you that the benefits outweigh the risks. So sad. Free samples and rebates seem to help the doctors love these meds and all new ones.
Petition is signed as of now.
Glad you posted this!! Thank You....

You know what... I have no idea who to trust anymore in the health field. There is a care2 poll asking about what you think about Dr's lying to you and I recently commented there. This is scary . There should be no change about the severe dangers of this drug .
