Type 2 diabetes has become a common diagnosis over the last ten years. As with most diseases, along with the prevalence of the condition comes new medications. Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR came onto the scene several years ago ato help treat Type 2 diabetes. Despite the positive impacts, studies have shown using Onglyza has been linked to severe health complications in patients that may result in death.
Patients who take Onglyza or Kombiglyze XR may face an increased risk of pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, and fatal heart failure. The New England Journal of Medicine and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have both warned of these potential complications, urging patients to consider the risks before taking the drug. Unfortunately, these warnings came too late for a number of victims who developed cancer or suffered fatal heart failure as a result of use.
If you or someone you love was diagnosed with cancer or suffered heart failure after taking Onglyza or Kombiglize XR, you may be entitled to significant compensation from the manufacturer.
