Why Did the FDA Approve a Generic Version of this Dangerous Drug?

  • Actos – the brand name for a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes – is presently embroiled in thousands of lawsuits alleging that the drug causes severe side effects including heart failure, macular edema and bladder cancer.
  • Even so, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has gone ahead and approved Mylan Lab’s plan to sell a generic version of this dangerous drug (pioglitazone), justifying their reasoning by saying this gives patients “affordable treatment options.”
  • Actos works by helping to control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes, but diabetes treatments focused solely on lowering blood sugar can actually worsen, rather than remedy, the underyling metabolic dysfunctions at the root of type 2 diabetes.
  • Type 2 diabetes arises from faulty leptin signaling and insulin resistance, and is therefore a fully preventable condition that can be controlled or reversed; the only known way to reestablish proper leptin and insulin signaling is through a proper diet and exercise program – there is no drug that can accomplish this.
