Actos heart problems

Common Questions and Answers about Actos heart problems


Avatar f tn I can not really answer if it is the Actos or not but diabetes can cause vision problems and prescription changes especially when first diagnosed. As the sugar levels rise and fall in your cells they rise and fall in ALL of your cells. Including the cells in your eyes and eye muscles. This is what creates the vision changes. As Blood Sugar levels stabilize so will the vision. I am type 1 and when I was diagnosed my sugars were over 800.
1236243 tn?1277680851 ve been on Actos for 9 years and have no problems. Avandia is effectively off the market but ACTOS was not removed. The diabetic educator should know better that suggest someone get off a drug. Suggesting that he/she contact their M.D. was a good idea, but not necessarily required, unless the 'one man in the class' is having noticable adverse side-effects. Rumor monger statements and posts like this one are more scary than it actually should be.
Avatar m tn I have diabetes ll. My doctor has given me Actos 30 mg. I have been hearing a lot about this drug and none of it's good, saying long term use causes bladder cancer. My last A1c was 6.1 although now due for another one. I'm not sure the risk involved with this drug is worth the benefits as my sugar is not out of control and my numbers are always under 175. Is Actos a safe drug to use??
Avatar n tn Is it best to take actos in the morning or evening? I am on metformin and glipized, as well. Is it best to take actos along with these medications to be more effective? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/712307'>Best time to take meds</a>.
489891 tn?1209058786 m also on actos plusmet 15/500 just once a day, with a insulin pump ( i take apidra in my pump)... byetta and actos plus met are very similar drugs doing the same thing.. the actos+met will make you gain weight very quickly. How many shots of byetta are you taking a day a long with the actos plus met? and what dose of actos are you taking and why...
Avatar f tn Mono test was negative and so was H pylori blood test. I suspect the Actos started my problems. I felt bloated and full, pain in one specific area on left side, stomach stopped growling, etc. After being off the actos (I still take amaryl and lisinopril) for 3 months I still feel occasional bloating and pain on left side but now I feel like something stuck in my throat. I don't have any trouble swallowing saliva or food/drinks.
Avatar n tn Anyone who has any heart or circulatory problems should avoid it, as it puts strain on the heart and narrows blood vessels (temporarilly). Anita, ecstacy has been linked to deaths, some 200 since 1996, which is alot lower than many legal drugs including painkillers such as paracetamol. So I would not advise doing ecstacy as it can have adverse affects on those who are out of shape or have issues relating to circulation or the heart.
2053416 tn?1330411192 Due to a lot of weight gain. My doctor took me off actos and put me on glumetza. I also take glipizide. The gulmetza does not seem to be working for me. My sugars are in the 200 + - range. Is there another generation 1 or 2 diabetes medicine that I can take with the glipizide that will work as good as the actos did and not cost so much? I would like to get off the glumetza. I am really thinking about asking the doctor to put me back on insulin (novolin R). Thank you for your input.
Avatar n tn I take my bolld sugars of a morning fasting and they are like 167-191, I take 1000 mg of janumet and 18 units of lantus before bed, of a morning I take 20 Units of lantus, 45 mg actos why am I having problems regulating my blood sugars, I also take 7 units of novalog after every meal??? Do you have any other sugustions??
178107 tn?1315947630 Actos made my appetite surge and I gained 20 lbs with combo Actos/Lantus. I went off Actos but still inject 20 units in evening. BS fast is 215. I do not EAT wrong.
Avatar n tn It is not uncommon for us to have/develop other autoimmune problems and/or hormonal problems like you describe. As you stabilize your blood sugars and achieve superb overall blood sugar control (usually measured by an A1c test every 3-4 months) then seek out a team of medical professionals who are skilled & experienced working with diabetic moms. These teams will always expect the pregnant moms to maintain extremely tight control -- which is difficult to achieve.
Avatar f tn There are several people here who have had expereince with blood sugar problems and treatment. Some used stuff like metformin or even insulin throughout treatment. My expereience was that high blood sugar levels went away while on treatment. That was a result of the red cell killing abilities of the ribavirin.
Avatar f tn monday, (i am a diabetic, took sugar test said it was 203, for me that is high, current meds are actos, potassium pill, and bp pill) at work, i felt dizzy and nearly passed out, sat down, looking at my manager i started seeing a black cloud over my eyes, didnt completely black out.
Avatar m tn x/full very interesting study which confirms why simvastatin, lowering cholesterol drug and actos (diabetes 2 drug), have anti hbv activity lowering hbvdna, cancer risk, all this without problems of resistance and acting on all hbv mutants conclusions: The discovery of the mechanisms by which HBV is controlled by the hepatic metabolic milieu may broaden our understanding of the unique regulation of HBV expression and may also explain the mechanisms by which HBV induces liver pathologies.
Avatar m tn 30am wake up. 2mg Glimepride at 5:00pm before dinner. Take glucose readings just before meds in am and pm. Currently avg 167 in the am and 114 in the pm. Active during the day but little activity during the evening and night. Anyone have information about switching the 30mg Actos + 4mg Glimepride to before dinner and the 2mg Glimepride at wake up in hopes of lowering the morning readings? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I currently take glimepiride 4mg twice daily and actos 15mg once daily. What is the sucess of these two meds. I continue to have high blood sugar levels.
Avatar m tn t even walk much due to foot pain problems. Anyway, my blood glucose used to be around the 140 mark then I started taking Actos 30 mg mg., I now take ONLY take 15 mg and my fasting blood sugar is around 110 to 115. I also barely eat in the morning - a cup of yogart and a banana for breakfast, a small turkey sandwhich for lunch. Afternoon I feel I'm having a hypglycemic attack so I have some cookies and coffee or tea (I need the caffeine- I'm dying from fatigue!
Avatar f tn Okay, so I guess what worries me about Metformin is the increased risk of cardio problems (I used to wear a heart-rate monitor and the docs never figured out what was wrong with my heart---I was like 14-15 yrs old at that time). Also drugs really affect me. I need the tiniest dosage and it affects me because I do not ever take drugs, not even for headaches. I have taken any of the Metformin because my doc has not diagnosed PCOS yet until I get my insulin/glucose levels and u/s this week.

Avatar f tn Did they put you on a low carb diet? When they put me on actos plus meds they advised me that I should be on a low carb diet to avoid the upset stomach thing. Once I received my BFP they moved me to metformin and suggested that I stay on the low carb thing. You have no idea how bad I want some potatoes right now! But it does help against the upset stomach. I take two a day. I am now 7w4d pregnant. I hope this helps you.

Avatar f tn Ask for Actos, I took it for my tyoe II. There are other medications too, talk to your doctor.
Avatar m tn Tuve sexo con una prostituta usando preservativo Condon, no se rompió ni nada, lo hice por problemas emocionales y ahora estoy muy preocupado por las posibles consecuencias de mi actos, quiero saber si tengo riesgo de tener HIV u otra enfermedad, voy a hacerme un examen en 7 día, pero el miedo me esta atacando, pueden aclarar esta duda por favor.
Avatar m tn Nonetheless my doctor diagnosed me as pre-diabetic and placed me on medication (Actos) because my HBA1C was way above the normal range. Check out the subject on "Dawns Effect" or "Dawns Phenomenon" on Youtube.
