Incretin Mimetics: Januvia, Victoza, Janumet & Byetta
Incretin is a hormone that the human body produces to tell the pancreas to release insulin after consuming food. The release of insulin helps prevent dangerous spikes in blood sugar, but in people with Type 2 diabetes, the body struggles to adequately release insulin. Incretin mimetics “mimic” natural incretin and help the body to release insulin when blood sugar is rising. Januvia, Victoza, Janumet and Byetta are a few examples of incretin mimetics. There are a variety of incretin mimetics available for people with Type 2 diabetes, but some of these medications have been linked to serious cancer risks. Januvia, Victoza, Janumet and Byetta have all been linked to a potential increased risk of pancreatic cancer.
James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C. is currently investigating cases for all four diabetic drugs linked to pancreatic cancer: Januvia, Victoza, Janumet and Byetta. If you are or a loved one was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer linked to these diabetic drugs, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact us now for a free consultation.
