Popular Zantac Alternative Drugs May Cause Type-2 Diabetes

Just when you thought nothing bad would happen if you switched heartburn medicines, PPI drugs have become linked to developing diabetes

Saturday, October 10, 2020 - In 2019, online drug testing pharmacy Valisure found levels of a carcinogenic substance called NDMA many times greater than the allowable FDA limit in ranitidine. Ranitidine is sold mostly under the brand name Zantac. When Zantac (ranitidine) was recalled earlier in the year by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for fear of causing cancer, heartburn and acid-reflux patients searched for alternatives to treat their painful condition. The FDA recommended switching to heartburn drugs that had not tested positive for excessive levels of NDMA, a known carcinogen, considering them a safe Zantac alternative. The FDA told readers, "Consumers taking over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine may consider using other OTC products approved for their condition. FDA's tests of samples of alternatives such as Pepcid (famotidine), Tagamet (cimetidine), Nexium (esomeprazole), Prevacid (lansoprazole) and Prilosec (omeprazole) show no NDMA in the medicines to date." The news of switching drugs was welcome by Zantac customers, but now they have a new disease to fear. Zantac users may have been trading the risk of developing cancer for the risk of developing diabetes when they switched heartburn medicines according to a report published today on (NM). Heartburn medicine cancer lawyers offer a free consultation with no obligation to file a claim.

According to Newsmax (NM), a newly-released study claims that using Pepcid, Tagamet, Nexium, Prevacid, and Prilosec may lead to developing Type-2 diabetes. Experts tell us that Type-2 diabetes causes problems for the capillaries and the smallest veins in the eyes, kidney, and nervous system and also increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. "Chinese researchers drew on information from studies of more than 200,000 U.S. health care professionals and found that regular use of PPIs (such as Aciphex, Nexium, Prilosec, Prevacid, Protonix) was associated with a 24% higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes." Long-term PPI drug usage is also associated with "bone fractures, kidney disease, digestive tract infections, and stomach cancer," according to NM. People that insist on taking Zantac alternative medicines should see their doctor once per month and have diabetes blood screening. By now everyone should know that changing one's diet to include more fruits and vegetables and less meat, spicy food, caffeine, and alcohol will go along way to eliminating the need for diabetes or heartburn medicine.

Former Zantac users are seeking guidance from knowledgeable Zantac Cancer attorneys around the country for help filing a claim against French Pharmaceutical giant Sanofi. Plaintiffs allege that taking Zantac regularly and for more than one year caused them to develop a variety of forms of cancer. Plaintiffs allege Zantac causes stomach, bladder, esophagus, intestinal, colon, prostate, and breast cancer.

If you or a loved one have taken Zantac regularly and developed cancer you should know that lawsuits are forming around the country into multidistrict litigation as the science behind Zantac NDMA cancer is common to all users of the drug. A Zantac Cancer lawyer stands ready to add your case to the group if you so qualify.
