Nobody wants to choose between diabetes and pancreatic cancer. If you could choose, the obvious answer would be “none of the above”. However, sometimes the manufacturers of the medications that we take to manage our medical conditions, such as diabetes, don’t tell us about the risks associated with the medications. They don’t tell us, they don’t tell our doctors, and they may not even tell the FDA.
You Can’t Make an Informed Decision Without All the Facts
In 2005, Byetta was first approved by the FDA for treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. Since then, additional studies have been done and additional warnings have been issued by the FDA. Yet Amylin Pharmaceuticals and the FDA have not yet officially added a warning about the risk of pancreatic cancer to Byetta. Thus, it is possible that you may not have known of the risk before you began taking Byetta to treat your diabetes. If you didn’t know of the risk, then the ability to make an informed decision was taken away from you.

Now that you have been diagnosed with the disease you do have a choice. You can choose whether or not you are going to pursue legal action for the harm that has been done to you. You can decide whether or not to hold the manufacturers of Byetta accountable for your disease.
