WHAT ARE THESE DRUGS AND WHY ARE THEY PRESCRIBED?​

Incretins are  prescribed to people diagnosed with Diabetes Type II to improve glucose (blood sugar) levels.  They include the name-brand drugs:

  • Byetta
  • Januvia
  • Victoza


​DRUG SIDE EFFECTS:
The FDA is investigating a suspected link between the use of incretin drugs and pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.

SYMPTOMS OF INCRETIN SIDE EFFECTS:

Pancreatitis:

Acute pancreatitis signs and symptoms include:

  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Abdominal pain that radiates to your back
  • Abdominal pain that feels worse after eating
  • Tenderness when touching the abdomen

Chronic pancreatitis signs and symptoms include:

  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Oily, smelly stools (steatorrhea)

Pancreatic Cancer:

  • Upper abdominal pain that may radiate to your back
  • Yellowing of your skin and the whites of your eyes (jaundice)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Depression
  • Blood clots
  • renal failure - kidney failure

HISTORY:
In 2009, the FDA required the manufactures of these drugs to include the risk of kidney damage on the drugs' warning labels.  Reported cases include acute kidney failure and renal insufficiency.

In 2011, a study linked these drugs to a higher risk of acute pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths.
