New Study Shows Diabetes Drug Avandia Prevents Diabetes
America’s diabetes population has been rising drastically in the last ten years. According to the American Diabetes Association there are 20.8 million children and adults that suffer from diabetes, or about 7% of our total population. Of that only 14.6 million actually know that they have it. Even though the numbers of people being affected by diabetes is growing, there is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
A recent study shows that the drug Avandia which is used to treat type 2 diabetes also helps to prevent patients from acquiring diabetes. In a 3 year clinical study out of Denmark that included 21 different countries, people who were at high risk to acquire diabetes were 60% less likely to contract the disease while taking Avandia.
The study included 5,269 people that were treated at 191 clinics throughout the world. The average age of participants was 55, of which all had “evidence of prediabetes with either impaired fasting glucose (blood sugar) or impaired glucose tolerance. Having prediabetes puts you at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes.”*
Half of the patients received 8 milligrams of Avandia and the other received a placebo. Only 306 people taking Avandia developed diabetes or died of any cause, whereas 686 of the participants taking the placebo developed diabetes or died.
The amount of risk that was reduced by Avandia was more than double that of any other medication. This could result in a new era of hope for those who run a high risk of diabetes in their families or have many of the potential symptoms. In an article on WemMD.com, Dr. Hertzel Gerstein said, “If we can prevent diabetes, we may also be able to prevent the serious cardiovascular, eye, kidney, and other health consequences of diabetes."
