Recently, the diabetic medication, Avandia, has reappeared in news headlines. Avandia is a prescription medication that was approved in the United States in 1998 to treat type 2 diabetes by helping control blood sugar levels.
The drug, which is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline PLC, has been shown to cause:
- Congestive Heart Failure;
- Heart Attack;
- Liver Toxicity;

It has been estimated that Avandia caused between 60,000 and 200,000 heart attacks and deaths due to cardiovascular complications between 1999 and 2006.
