Paalala! Isang Sikat Na Gamot Para Sa Sakit Na Diabetes Ang Nagdululot Daw Ng Sakit Na Cancer

A batch of a common diabetes treatment has been withdrawn after a cancer-causing ingredient was discovered in it.

After finding ‘unacceptable’ amounts of nitrosodimethylamine in the implicated medicine – an oral solution known as metformin — pharmacies were advised to withdraw it.

The chemical, abbreviated as NDMA, is a recognized carcinogen that was originally employed in commercial rocket fuel manufacture.

The measure was simply preventive, according to the UK’s medical authorities, and there was no evidence that it had harmed patients.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune reaction triggered by inherited genetics or environmental factors that destroys cells responsible for insulin synthesis.

Type 2 diabetes is caused by the body’s resistance to insulin and is linked to both heredity and food.

According to the MHRA, the change only affected a single batch of Rosemont Pharmaceuticals Limited’s product. Metformin in other forms is still accessible.

According to Dr Alison Cave, MHRA’s chief safety officer, ‘Patient safety is at the heart of everything we do.

‘This recall of one batch of metformin oral solution is a precautionary measure to prevent further exposure to the nitrosamine impurity.

‘There is no evidence to date that this impurity has caused any harm to patients. Individuals who have metformin oral solution from this batch at home should continue to take their medication.

‘It is very important to speak to your doctor or pharmacist before stopping any treatment — they can address any concerns you may have and can advise you on the best course of action.

‘Healthcare professionals should check their stock to quarantine and return any units from this batch to their supplier using their supplier’s approved process.’
