Pharmaceutical Drugs

Type 2 Diabetes Associated with Lipitor

Recent studies have found an association between the use of statins – including Lipitor – and increased risks of diabetes. Although the link between Lipitor and the development of diabetes is still being researched, there have been reported cases among women of healthy weight with no history of heart disease or stroke.

Statins have come under increasing scrutiny for various reported side effects and because many critics believe that too many patients are being put on drugs such as Lipitor. Emerging evidence regarding more serious side effects such as increased blood sugar levels and diabetes has prompted concern from the medical community, consumers, and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

Past studies have noted small but definite risks of diabetes after using statins. Others have suggested that middle-aged and post-menopausal women may be at greater risk for developing diabetes. With injured consumers beginning to file lawsuits, more research is expected.

Although many argue that the benefits of taking statins outweigh the risks, there is no denying the fact that some consumers are experiencing adverse side effects. Pfizer has been named in hundreds of Lipitor lawsuits, many of which were filed by women who developed Type 2 diabetes. These consumers claim that Pfizer did not adequately warn about diabetes risks and that information about Lipitor was misleading and inaccurate. Efforts to accumulate victims' claims into a mass tort claim are being made throughout the country.
