Flood Law Group released a statement today announcing that they are now investigating claims for patients who developed type-2 diabetes after being prescribed Lipitor. Lipitor belongs to a family of drugs known as statins, which have been shown to increase the risk of new-onset diabetes in some cases.
(PRWEB) February 10, 2014
Flood Law Group today announced that they are actively investigating claims by any patient who allegedly developed type-2 diabetes after taking the prescription cholesterol drug Lipitor.
According to the FDA (FDA Expands Advice on Statin Risks, 1/31/2014), some popular pharmaceutical brands prescribed for high cholesterol, known as statins have been associated with high blood sugar levels. According to the FDAs consumer update, Lipitor, a drug produced by Pfizer with the aim of lowering blood cholesterol, is one of the affected statins that can potentially increase the risk of new-onset diabetes.
Drug makers should be held accountable for side effects caused by unsafe medications, said Chris Brown, Director of Communications at Flood Law Group. Our attorneys are working hard to help patients and families affected by Lipitor and other statins.
The attorneys at Flood Law Group are aggressively investigating claims from anyone potentially afflicted with type-2 diabetes after taking Lipitor.
Both pharmaceutical companies and medical health professionals must prescribe these potentially dangerous drugs in a responsible, conscientious manner, said Brown. Doctors owe it to their patients to do a detailed study of their medical history whenever a treatment like this is considered.
