Diabetes Drugs and Pancreatic Cancer: Incretin Mimetic Class Drugs May Cause An Increased Risk of Pancreatic Cancer by Diabetes Drug Cancer Lawyer Jason S. Coomer
Recent scientific studies have shown that some diabetes drugs in the incretin mimetic class may cause an increased health risk of pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis. These incretin diabetes drugs include exenatide (Byetta, Bydureon), liraglutide (Victoza), sitagliptin (Januvia, Janumet, Janumet XR, Juvisync), saxagliptin (Onglyza, Kombiglyze XR), alogliptin (Nesina, Kazano, Oseni), and linagliptin (Tradjenta, Jentadueto). These drugs work by mimicking the incretin hormones that the body usually produces naturally to stimulate the release of insulin in response to a meal. They are used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. Many of these incretin diabetes drugs already include a black box warning regarding thyroid cancer risk, but evidence is growing that these drugs may also create an increased risk of pancreatic cancer.
