    People need to be aware that the FDA is looking into this link.They were running studies when they discovered the possibility. Actos is a drug for diabetes.

      I am so sorry. Many drugs have very serios syde effects, especially if people are using them for many years, or they are more sensitive.
      Best wishes to the recovery of your husband.

      Doctors should help not harm us. I hate this. It makes me so angry and helpless at the same time. They made so much damage to my family I cannot even tell!
      I know for a fact that there are some alternative/herbal remedies to diabetes. You just have to find the right specialist, it is not easy but possible. Don't give up. Take care.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's cancer. Hope they found it early and that it will be irradiated.
    Thanks for sharing the information about the diabetes drug connection. The FDA seems to find new unintended consequences to their "fixes" all the time, don't they?
    Good luck and keep us posted.
    Hugs and prayers, MM

      Thank you so much. He just had a checkup and the bladder was clear. I think he has a good prognosis. Caring people mean a lot to us. He is filing a report with the FDA
