Lipitor Lawsuit Attorneys | Romaucci & Blandin
There have been extensive clinical trials showing that by using Lipitor, women can develop Type II Diabetes. Lipitor is a pharmaceutical drug used by over 20 million Americans that is used for managing high cholesterol.
The University of Massachusetts conducted a study involving 154,000 women who did not have diabetes before they started taking Lipitor. The study showed that after taking Lipitor, more than 10,000 women reported that they had been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. There are several factors that contribute to women developing Type II Diabetes, including, age, high blood pressure, inactivity, obesity, high blood sugar, family history and high triglycerides. The Journal of the American College of Cardiology found in 2010 that people who took 80mg of Lipitor each day had a 37% higher chance of getting diabetes, and patients who took higher dosages had even more or a risk of developing diabetes.
The FDA ordered the manufacturer of Lipitor, Pfizer, in 2012 to modify Lipitor’s label to inform consumers about the potential health risks of using the drug.
