You’re no fool. But the feds sure tried to play you for one.
When the diabetes drug rosiglitazone (Avandia) was linked to serious and even deadly heart risk more than a decade ago, they didn’t step in to shield patients. The moved to protect profits instead.
The feds dragged their feet for YEARS before restricting the drug. Meanwhile, the “experts” warned patients that the risks of quitting Avandia could be worse than staying on it.
And they ALL claimed it was too soon to act against the diabetes drug. “No, no, no, don’t be silly – WAIT for more studies,” they insisted.
Thankfully millions of folks DIDN’T wait as Americans turned away from the drug in droves. But for those that listened to the so-called “experts” and kept taking this diabetes drug, we now have some answers. And the news isn’t good.
We finally have that new study, and it confirms all of our worst fears about this drug.
Plus, it’s yet another reminder of just how broken the mainstream medical system is and why you can never trust so-called experts and officials to be the FINAL word on what’s best for you and your health.
Diabetes drug linked to rising heart risks
In 2007 a study linked Avandia to a stunning 43 percent jump in heart attack risk.
The feds responded to this shocking news by… doing, basically, NOTHING. They chose what amounted to inaction while millions of lives hung in the balance.
But sales plummeted for the diabetes drug anyway as fed-up folks took matters into their own hands. While the feds dilly-dallied, patients across the country who had seen the headlines marched into doctors’ offices.
They were SICK of playing guinea pig… and DEMANDED a change.
Meanwhile, the feds didn’t get their too-little, too-late act together until 2010, nearly three years after that terrifying study was published. And even then they only restricted the once-popular diabetes drug – they didn’t ban it.
Now, the latest research confirms the instincts of clever Americans – and NOT the clueless feds – were spot-on from the beginning.
The TRUE toll of Avandia gets exposed
Researchers from Yale University found that taking rosiglitazone is linked to a 33 percent increase in your risk of…
- heart attack
- heart failure
- cardiovascular deaths
- non-cardiovascular related deaths
In other words, that one little diabetes pill delivers a whole lot of risks. And to think they were hoping folks would simply keep taking it.
It’s nuts. And in many cases, you don’t need to face the risks of Avandia or any other diabetes drug for that matter.
Diabetes is a disease of elevated blood sugar. Get that extra sugar out of the blood, and you’ll kick the condition in the you-know-what. And the simplest way to accomplish that is to dump the junk carbs.
No added sugar in the diet leads to less sugar circulating in your blood. And as a bonus, it’ll help you lose weight and burn fat, too.
For a little more help battling diabetes, ask your doctor about taking the all-natural combo of berberine and silymarin. A study last year found the duo can help cut both fasting glucose and LDL cholesterol at the same time.
