Diabetes Thyroid Cancer Risk: Some Diabetes Drugs Have Been Shown To Cause An Increased Risk of Thyroid Cancer by Diabetes Thyroid Cancer Lawyer

Diabetes Thyroid Cancer Risk: Some Diabetes Drugs Have Been Shown To Cause An Increased Risk of Thyroid Cancer by Diabetes Thyroid Cancer Lawyer

Recent scientific studies have shown that some diabetes drugs cause an increased risk of cancer including thyroid cancer and pancreatic cancer.  Persons taking diabetes drugs should be aware of these cancer risks and discuss the potential health risk with their medical provider to determine their best treatment as well as how to detect early signs of cancer.

Persons that have been taking diabetes drugs and have been diagnosed with cancer as well as families that have lost a loved one to cancer and that loved one was on a diabetes drug should make sure that the adverse reaction of the diabetes drug is reported to the health provider that prescribed the diabetes drug and the FDA.  Further, several diabetes drug lawyers are currently reviewing diabetes drug lawsuits.  For more information on these lawsuits please go to the following web pages: Diabetes Drug Thyroid Cancer Lawsuit Information and Diabetes Drug Pancreatic Cancer Lawsuit Information.

Early Detection of Cancer is Essential for Survival: Symptoms of Thyroid Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer

Early warning of cancer is essential for survival and can often prevent the spread of cancer in an individual.  Below are symptoms of both Thyroid Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer.  Persons on diabetes drugs should be aware of the risk of cancer that the diabetes drug may cause and discuss the risk as well as early detection protocols with their health care provider.  

Thyroid cancer is usually highly treatable when found early and is usually painless and without symptoms in its early stages. Unless there is an obvious neck mass that can be seen, most nodules are detected by chance during a routine physical examination or during a doctor visit for an unrelated purpose.

Some symptoms that may appear include:
  •     Hoarseness that has no known cause and does not go away
  •     Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  •     Difficulty swallowing or an unusual sensation (a “lump”) when swallowing
  •     Nodule (lump) or growth in the neck
  •     An abnormally large lymph node (a “swollen gland”) that fails to spontaneously shrink over a few months' time

Pancreatic cancer can be one of the most deadly types of cancer and early detection of pancreatic cancer is essential for survival.  Symptoms of pancreatic cancer can include:
  • dark urine and clay-colored stools,
  • fatigue and weakness, 
  • jaundice (a yellow color in the skin, mucus membranes, or eyes), 
  • loss of appetite and weight loss, 
  • nausea and vomiting, 
  • pain or discomfort in the upper part of the belly or abdomen, 
  • back pain, 
  • blood clots, 
  • diarrhea, and 
  • indigestion.
Pancreatic cancer is often not detected early on and is often advanced when it is first found.  As such, ninety-five percent of the people diagnosed with this cancer will not be alive 5 years later.  Some patients have pancreatic cancer that can be surgically removed are cured. However, in more than 80% of patients the tumor has already spread and cannot be completely removed at the time of diagnosis.

Byetta Cancer Lawyer: Recent Studies Have Shown That Byetta May Cause An Increased Risk of Both Thyroid Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer by Byetta Cancer Lawyer

Byetta Cancer Lawyer: Recent Studies Have Shown That Byetta May Cause An Increased Risk of Both Thyroid Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer by Byetta Cancer Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

Persons taking the injectable diabetes drug, Byetta (Exenatide), should be aware that this diabetes drug may cause an increased health risk of both thyroid cancer as well as pancreatic cancer.  It is important for any person taking Byetta to communicate with their physician to determine the best course of treatment for their diabetes and to make sure that they are aware of any potential cancer symptoms if they continue to take the drug.
If you are taking Byetta and have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer or pancreatic cancer, please feel free to contact Byetta Thyroid Cancer Lawyer and Byetta Pancreatic Cancer Lawyer, Jason S. Coomer about a potential lawsuit. 

Byetta Pancreatic Cancer Lawsuits and Byetta Thyroid Cancer Lawsuits

Byetta Pancreatic Cancer Lawsuits and Byetta Thyroid Cancer Lawsuits are in the process of being reviewed and filed as recent scientific evidence indicates that the injectable diabetes drug, Byetta (Exenatide), may cause an increased risk of thyroid cancer and pancreatic cancer.  Pancreatic Cancer is an extremely deadly form of cancer.  Most people diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer or Cancer of the Pancreas do not survive beyond the five years and many are given much less time as Pancreatic Cancer is hard to detect.  Early detection for both pancreatic cancer and thyroid cancer is a key to surviving cancer and preventing it from spreading.

Prior 2009, the FDA received more than 30 adverse reports from Byetta users. Base on this information, the FDA directed Amylin to conduct six post-marketing studies regarding potential health risks associated with the use of Byetta including the risk of thyroid cancer and pancreatic cancer. Additionally, the FDA has expressed concern that all extended-release diabetes drugs belonging to Byetta's family of GLP-1 receptor agonists may be linked to thyroid tumors based on tests conducted on rats and monkeys.

For the over 1 million users of Byetta, it is important to be aware of these cancer health risks and contact your doctor if you are experiencing any potential cancer symptoms.

Fatal Medical Mistakes: Fatal Medical Mistakes and Deadly Hospital Errors Are A Leading Cause of Death and Becoming More Common by Fatal Medical Mistake Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

Fatal Medical Mistakes: Fatal Medical Mistakes and Deadly Hospital Errors Are A Leading Cause of Death and Becoming More Common by Fatal Medical Mistake Lawyer Jason S. Coomer 

Fatal medical mistakes and hospital errors are a leading cause of death and becoming more common.  Families that have lost a loved one from a fatal medical mistake or deadly hospital error should obtain their loved one's medical records and make sure a proper investigation is made of the mistake.  A proper investigation or a fatal medical malpractice lawsuit can often ensure that a hospital corrects policies to avoid future similar fatal medical mistakes. 

For more information on fatal medical mistakes and hospital errors, please feel free to contact Fatal Mistake Medical Malpractice Lawyer, Jason S. Coomer.


Decreased Budget and Lack of Communication Can Cause Fatal Medical Mistakes

Unfortunately, medical mistakes happen when doctors and nurses get too busy, are understaffed, under the influence of drugs, or are just not paying attention.  As medical budgets go down and healing people becomes more of a "for profit" business, cost cutting measures are causing more medical mistakes.  Overworked doctors, residents, and nurses are much more likely to make mistakes than well rested health care professionals.

Medical mistakes also happen more often when no one is watching.  It is extremely important when you are in the hospital to have someone that is with you and watching out for your well being.  This is especially true if you have an allergy to certain types of medicines.  Communication with your health care professionals is also important and can greatly limit medical mistakes.

Preventing Fatal Medical Errors: It's Going to Be a Long, Hard Slog - CBS News

"Hospitals are dangerous places for patients, thanks to the generally underappreciated risks of infection and medical errors, which may claim almost 100,000 lives a year in the U.S. That's true even though the Institute of Medicine sounded the alarm more than a decade ago."



Medical radiation treatments fraught with technician error and fatal mishap, oversight questionable


"Medical radiation accidents are more common than you may think. Whether it's a software glitch or technician error, there are plenty of opportunities for a scan or treatment to go horribly wrong. And technologists are poorly regulated in a number of states, increasing the chances of a serious and potentially life-threatening mistake."

FIVE MYTHS ABOUT MEDICAL MALPRACTICE - five_myths_about_medical_negligence.pdf 

Myth #1: There are Too Many “Frivolous” Malpractice Lawsuits

Myth #2: Malpractice Claims Drive Up Health Care Costs

Myth #3: Doctors are Fleeing

Myth #4: Malpractice Claims Drive Up Doctors’ Premiums

Myth #5: Tort Reform will Lower Insurance Rates 
 

Severe brain damage and death can be caused by a lack of oxygen getting to the brain, a hemorrhage inside the brain, or damage to the skull.  When an improper combination of drugs is prescribed it can cause a patient to go into respiratory failure, this combined with improper monitoring of the patient can cause prolonged lack of oxygen to the brain resulting in permanent brain damage and even death.
These serious brain injuries can occur because of medical negligence when careless health care providers do not provide proper monitoring of patients, prescribe incorrect drug combinations, do not recognize fetal distress, or fail to recognize a patient has stopped breathing.  For this reason, it is important to have a person with HIPPA Authority, Medical Power of Attorney, and Limited Power of Attorney looking out for you or a loved one while they are in the hospital.

X-ray verified the connections were intact and that the lead may have moved left. Programs 1-6 for the previous percutaneous lead were removed so the pt could not inadvertently use the old programs.

Patients with Serious Back Injuries Including Severed Spinal Cords, Crushed Discs, Bulged Discs, and Herniated Discs when Seeking Pain Relief can sometimes Fall Victim to Defective Products, Negligent Health Care, and "For Profit" Medical Professionals Seeking to Increase Profits: Be Careful When Deciding to Have Back Surgery

The human spinal cord is basically a bundle of nerves which is surrounded by 33 bones or vertebrae.  Located between each vertebrae is a spinal disc which is a liquid filled disc shaped pouch.  These discs are stacked on top of one another and act as shock absorbers allowing the spine to flex, bend, and twist.  When functioning properly, the vertebrae and discs protect the spinal cord allow nerve impulses to travel from and to the brain to other parts of the body.  This allows us to experience sensations, move our bodies, and control many bodily functions.

Problems arise when the vertebrae, discs, or spinal cord are injured.  Broken vertebrae can damage and impinge on discs or the spinal cord causing extreme pain, numbness, and loss of control of bodily functions.  Back injuries can occur through traumatic events that result in paralysis.  Depending where and how severe the injury is will determine what type and how severe the paralysis is.   

The human body has remarkable healing potential.  Combining determination, proper medical attention, knowledge about an injury, and focus on the healing process can greatly help most injuries.  Hiring a lawyer to battle the insurance companies and responsible parties can allow the injured person to focus on the healing process.     

If you or a loved one have suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury or other serious back injury including a severed spinal cord, broken vertebrae, crushed discs, herniated discs, or a bulged discs; the most important thing you can do is to find a good medical doctor to assess the injury so you know what you are dealing with and how to best treat the injury.  From physical therapy and steroid injections to back surgeries (lumbar diskectomy, cervical fusion, and other lumbar or cervical procedures), there are many different ways to treat a back injury and it is important to know what will work best for you.  

Unfortunately, there are also medical clinics, medical implant sales people, and doctors that are more interested in profit and their bottom line than what is best for a patient.  Some of these medical professionals carelessly cause painful and difficult conditions to become much worse by paralyzing patients that are seeking relief from pain.   

As the economic pressures of the medical system keep pushing medical providers to become "for profit" and prioritize making money over the health of individual patients; unnecessary procedures, overworked staff, using defective products, and making mistakes will become more common and hurt people.  It is extremely important to thoroughly investigate any clinic, hospital, surgeon or other health care provider prior to having spinal surgery, or any other complicated procedure.  Please feel free to go to the following web pages for more information on Failed Back Surgery and Defective Implantable Neurostimulation System Lawsuits, Texas Medical Malpractice Lawsuits, and Federal Medical Malpractice Lawsuits.
