    Interesting, I never even thought of the link of BC and diabetes before. thanks for the post



    There was some media buzz a while back about the diabetic drug Actos and it having a connection to bladder cancer. I even saw an ad in a magazine about a class action law suit in the US but haven’t heard anything about the outcome of that.

    There are drugs out there that carry risks of creating another disease while we are taking it for something else so we always need to weigh the pros and cons with our medical team before embarking on any treatment protocol.


    Thanks for sharing this information with us.

    We all need to keep informed about the latest developments in order to manage our health!
