Avandia - diabetes control or not?

Laane, what is your opinion about taking Avandia from the market?

There's a lot to do about Avandia.
It's a diabetes medication that increases the sensivity of the body to insulin. That way less insulin or no insulin is needed to keep blood sugar levels within a normal range.

There's a lot to do about Avandia after reports in the media that research revealed a 43 percent higher risk of heart attack compaired to those with other diabtes medication or no medication at all.

Well, it's always difficult to generate perfect conclusions from research.

There is a certain group of diabetespatients that use Avandia.
Is it good to compaire them to other groups, with probably other phycical characteristics?

And it is a 43% higher risk of 90%, or a
43% higher risk of 0.1%?

I think the most important question that has to be asked is:
what's available to these patients that has the same effect and the same side effects?

I have tried each and every diabets medication that was available in my country for me.
I also have an amini acid metabolism disease, so there are diabetes medications I can't use at all.

Those I tried gave me side-effects that influence my daily life in a bad way.

So I have to make the choice between my daily wellbeing and a somewhat larger risk of heart disease.

I have no choice, because my family needs me now to feel better.


I want to have the well informed choice whether to take this medicine or not.
Taking it from the market will mean I have no other choice... everything will be worse.

Thank you for your advice. I have a family member with diabetes.

I wonder if he is aware of this stuff?

Thanks, again!
