This presentation discusses Januvia side effects and treatment options as well as reviewing the underlying studies establishing links from drugs like Januvia and Januvia side effects.
What are Januvia Side Effects?
One of the severe Januvia side effects has been Chronic pancreatitis that has been linked to pancreatic cancer that is the fourth most common cause of cancer-related death in the US.
Januvia side effects can cause significant health issues and even Merck, the manufacturer establishes this right in its package warnings.
Since it was first introduced by Merck in October 2006, signs have existed that suggest there is a connection between pancreatic cancer and Januvia. However, the manufacturer appears to have ignored these safety signals and failed to provide adequate warnings about the risk of cancer from Januvia and Janumet.
Within a three years of Januvia being introduced in the United States, an increasing number of reports of Januvia side effects began to surface of users developing pancreatitis, which involves an inflammation of the pancreas.
Chronic pancreatitis could substantially increase the risk of developing pancreas cancer from Januvia the longer an individual stays on the drug, highlighting the devastating effects of Mercks’ failure to provide proper warnings to consumers about the risk of pancreas injury and Januvia side effects.

Unfortunately, Pancreatic Cancer is often missed as a diagnosis because of its difficulty to identify.  Pancreatic Cancer cells spread rapidly and are not usually detected in their early stages. Because of this, pancreatic cancer is a major contributor to cancer death statistics. For pancreatic cancer that cannot be treated entirely with surgery, or cancer that has spread outside the pancreas, a cure is not viable and the average outcome is loss of life usually less than 1 year. Most people diagnosed with this form of cancer will yeild a five year life expectancy.  It is important to get different opinions and learn all options once a patient is diagnosed with pancreatic issues, or has taken medications that have lead to Pancreatitis.  Click Here for more information on treatment options and ways to get help at no cost.
