Lantus scandal: the suspicions of cancer and the economic interests of insulin

In the last few days in the world of diabetes has been unleashed an earthquake: a study published June 26 in Diabetologia, the journal of the EASD, has highlighted a possible carcinogenic effect of Lantus, ie insulin glargine. The famous and expensive insulin similar that allows anyone with diabetes to control their blood sugar through a basal rate of 24 hours (or almost) with one injection a day would be a health hazard, even if the conditional is a must .

Cartucce di insulina Lantus A study of 127,000 patients with diabetes in Germany would have found that people who regularly use Lantus has 31% more chance of developing cancer within 1 year and a half, and that the risk is proportional to the amount of Lantus taken daily. Similar studies conducted in Sweden, Scotland and the United Kingdom have partially confirmed the results, but there have been some conflicting data. The Food and Drug Administration has opened an investigation to pursue the matter.

This is a preliminary research that is certainly thorough with further studies before arriving at a definitive answer, as the authors themselves have admitted the scientific publication. However it was great confusion unleashed by the news, along with the sensation exploded in diabetology. But above all it is great dismay that crosses many people with diabetes who use insulin that who request certain answers and quick. It is important to remember, however, that patients treated with Lantus must not stop treatment without the consent of your physician diabetologist.

Also from the financial point of view there is a stock market crash of the title Sanofi-Aventis: the French pharmaceutical company that produces the Lantus has lost more than 7% in one day of publication of the study. Sanofi Aventis is the same corporation that only a few days before the outbreak of the "scandal Lantus" announced the production of the vaccine against the famous "flu", also known as swine flu.

Immediately after the stock market crash, the Sanofi Aventis has seen fit to issue a series of statements, with which it aims to ensure that in fact the Lantus is completely safe and that there is no link with cancer, challenging the method used by the researchers in the study recently published. The question that arises is: "who" wanted to reassure the leaders of Sanofi Aventis? Doctors prescribing the Lantus? Or maybe the shareholders who buy stocks? The fear is that we forget the people. Because the money and interests revolving around these topics are so many, even many, and I would not want the biggest concern was that an effort to secure sales and capital, before the actual safety of the drug. But diabetics are really more important than money?

Doubts are also personally because I had heard rumors on the carcinogenicity of Lantus already two years ago, although at that time nobody talked about it and there was nothing confirmed about it, but because the news came just now, winning the most important media and newspapers worldwide? Perhaps because amplified by the noise of the collapse in the stock market? Or maybe because the economic interests demanded that things go well?

We must demand instead of at the center of the issue there is the person with diabetes and his health. Instead of reassuring "a priori", it would be good that everyone, including Sanofi Aventis, would take in hand the results of the study seriously, and to flesh out urgently with new research, so as to give a definite answer on Lantus and rapid, with the hope that this insulin is actually safe for all those who use it. We hope that this is the path taken by all companies, associations of diabetes, and scientific bodies. Stressing the importance of the individual above all else: it serves the ethical economy, especially in pharmacology, where comes in people's lives. We await answers.

    E 'urgent understand whether the Lantus has side effects so dramatic, as soon as you have to give us some news!
    And hallucinating, Kafkaesque think that a life-saving medicine can have serious implications such as cancer: I wonder if the pharmaceutical multizionali are criminal associations in the light of so many huge pharmaceutical scandals and they are the cause of so much pain. Let's do something to find out more about this insulin similar and that doctors will wake up from slumber and fight for their patients, Cristina Fabbrini

  2. 2 Simone

    Cristina, through the comments, you are absolutely right: we must remember, however, that at the moment there is neither confirmed nor denied certain. We therefore hope to be made as soon as the light of this worrying news, and let's keep updated. As soon as I know more I will know myself on this blog. See you soon!

  3. 3 Ann @

    Speechless !!
    And who until this morning used the LANTUS ????
    Oblivious to everything ???
    Mha we'll see.
    The fact is that ...... not bosogna wonder of so-called "Side Effects" ... that come to light only after years of Administer the drug.
    As you well know ... UNFORTUNATELY clinical trials have a 5 stage: PHARMACOVIGILANCE, or the study of the effects on the organism NEGATIVE.
    If the results are true then had the lantus should be withdrawn from the market.
    Simo ... .aspetto other publications,
    A kiss

  4. 4 roberto

    the son of my cousin (db1) phoned the primary diabetes nurse who is treating him, telling him to suspend the lantus and giving it another that I can not remember.
    shame about 6 months ago and 'was removed from the knee osteosarcoma as a big orange !!!
    besides the db also 16 cycles of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
    for now it seems that there are metastases
    we hope !!
    a "sweet" Greetings to all
    ps luckily I only use the humalog

  5. 5 Mara

    Hello guys.
    I am the mother of a boy who is diabetic for 10 years and does lantus and an athlete at a competitive level.
    Coincidentally I read your article on the blog, and of course I care about the health of my child.
    From all I knew were preliminary results and unconfirmed news from definitive.
    What are your sources for expressing this certainty? Can you tell me some names to turn to or write an email to which to have the proof of this risk you doing lantus?
    This risk relates only to the use of lantus or in general of the insulins slow - fast - ultra etc ..?
    Is not that, like mad cow disease in 2001, the bird flu in 2003 or another, we are bombarded with so many messages of alarm and then when you go to look for scientific articles, he speaks in a very different way, and after a few months everything is forgotten and nobody talks about it anymore.

    In addition to what you say and the lantus company that produces with its economic interests, there could be also the economic interests of competitors to help lift this big mess?

    From the portrait you do you, you are in close contact with one of these competitors has a drug comparable to lantus but much less known and perhaps less sold, or am I wrong?

    In all cases, I thank you and if you can send me your sources I am grateful.


  6. 6 Simone

    Anna, thank you so much information! You're definitely more experienced than me in these things, and unfortunately what you say on the "pharmacovigilance" is true. There remains then is wait, and hope that everything will turn out for the better, especially for the many people who use quest'insulina. We'll see!
    Hello, you soon

  7. 7 Simone

    Dear Robert, I'm very sorry for the son of your cousin ... Unfortunately in these cases the words of support are hard to find.
    Your story is very intense and interesting ... Anyway we should not jump to conclusions: we should be familiar with the reasons why the primary to this decision, his choice will certainly be supported by his medical experience. It is said that this choice is linked to the news of Lantus, and even more so it is said that the news is linked to bad luck happened to your relative. Surely it would be worrying to find that it is so! But this is not for us to judge him: the doctors and scientists will do their job.
    I make you happy birthday, to you and to the son of your cousin, hoping that it will get better and solve his problem. If you want to keep us updated on this story feel free to do so, if only to give us more information about it. Do well to know that your cousin with this blog we are close to his son. Thank you so much of the testimony, and we salute you ...

    PS: Since the issue raised by the comment, I take this opportunity to remember (as already done in the article) that people with diabetes who use Lantus must not come to autonomous choices as important to stop treatment: it must be always and only your doctor to do so. For any information of a doctor you should discuss with their healthcare professional!

  8. 8 Simone

    Mara, thanks for your comment, although this same comment leaves me quite perplexed, maybe you have not understood or read that right.

    I answer for points:
    1) You say you are worried about your child: it is normal to be worried, I myself have about it, since I had used the Lantus few years ago.
    2) However (as you say), you do not need to do anything for alarmism, at least until there are no definitive results: my article it seems clear in this sense, does not create alarmism, asks only clarity.
    3) You ask me: "What are your sources for expressing this certainty?" As you can clearly read in my article, I have expressed no certainty on this issue, in fact, I have said many times that there is nothing for sure, and I used to write the conditional beginning to end. I talked about it, for example, "POSSIBLE carcinogenic", "WOULD so dangerous", "SUSPECTED cancer" ... As you see, no certainty, indeed: you may quote me on that passage I would have said this? In this case it would be a mistake. Also in reply to comments seemed to be clear.
    4) You say: "For all I knew, and preliminary results were not confirmed by definitive news". If you read the article, I wrote exactly the same thing, namely, that: "This is a preliminary research that is certainly thorough with further studies before arriving at a definitive answer ..."
    5) I wonder if this risk is related only to Lantus or other insulins similar: the study examined insulin glargine, which is the Lantus. The other types of insulin have not been studied in this case, so I can not tell more, I am neither a doctor nor an expert on the subject: I just read a news story reported.
    6) Of course, the economic interests of this dust are also there for the competitors: the hope is that scientific bodies always act independently and impartially.
    7) I'm not working contact with any pharmaceutical company, and I never appointed other insulins (competitors or not) that are not related to the news, that you instead make sense.
    8) Regarding my personal experiences, I can tell you that when I am faced with an initiative or project that I think ethically valid and useful for the next, then I get busy trying to do my best. I participate in various voluntary activities: I do not care if they are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies or not, if this does not affect their morality. Similarly I write on this blog what goes through my head so genuine and sincere, without external influences of any kind: it never happened, or at least I could never accept it. As I wrote clearly in a page from birth of the site, this blog is written purely personal as boy and sporty with diabetes (see "Information> Warnings").
    9) I wonder if the contrary if your intervention is truly disinterested, or whether in your professional career you're dealing with some companies involved.
    10) We come to the main point of your comment: the sources of the news reported in my article. They are clearly marked. I said that this is a study published in the journal Diabetologia the EASD, and bottom of the article I put a link to the specific page. Just below I put (to be fair) is also a link to the page managed by Sanofi Aventis where there are data supporting the Lantus. Other sources on which I have documented several articles read in the foreign press: this news in the world has had a lot of visibility (the Italian media instead were quite silent on this, as on many important issues, after all). For example, there were several articles on the site of the Wall Street Journal.

    I hope I explained myself and have answered all your doubts. I also hope to have further specified (for those who have not already guessed) that the purpose of the article is not to condemn, to alarm or give definite answers, but simply to inform about international news, and to seek reliable answers a confirmation or denial for the good of all.
    So I invite you to re-read the article again more carefully ... If I still had something to ask leave us a new comment, I will be happy to answer! Thank you, and goodbye

  9. 9 luck

    I wanted to know if 'only lantus or all insulin preparations typically put at risk our lives I employ NovoMix 30 and I was operated on for cancer after a year that I was using can you please give me some clarification of your safe colabborazione I send my best regards and thank that never hurts

  10. 10 lucky

    I do not know what I wanted to ask I'll ask just hope that as usual there will be half of the money that Mr. I think makes more dead than a war ok greetings to all

  11. 11 Simone

    Hi Fortuna! Thanks for the comment ...
    To your question, unfortunately I can not be of much help, because I'm not a doctor. What I can say though is to stay calm, and not to jump to conclusions: from what I know there is nothing to be alarmed. First, because the news in question concerns only and exclusively the Lantus, according to Lanus because even when nothing is certain, and are ongoing studies to confirm or deny anything. The news of this article simply reports a scientific research, but in diabetology ideas are conflicting, and not everyone agrees. Associations and doctors recommend not to be afraid and not to stop or change your therapy! So do not worry, if there will be news definitely your diabetologist will keep you updated, have this to him ...
    For the second comment on the money ... Unfortunately you are right, sometimes the money is managed without ethics and create damage to many people, but you always have hope in people of good will: there are still many around! Let's hope so!
    I'm sorry for your misfortunes: I make you happy birthday! Courage, the next one! Back again to visit us ...

  12. 12 Susanna

    are diabetic and do the LANTUS from about 5 anni.vorrei know if they are at risk considering that I always have about between 12 and 15 units giornaliere.RESTA THAT THERE 'LIMIT THE CRAP AROUND US

  13. 13 cristina

    My son, nearly 14 years ago lantua the onset of the disease, ie 'from February this year, great, WHICH WILL' HIS FUTURO.Sono very preoccupata.Grazie.

  14. 14 Simone

    Care Susanna and Cristina, I wanted to reassure you about the Lantus: the news was about a preliminary hypothesis pending investigations, nothing for sure then. What advice is not to worry too much at this time, and if necessary to seek further information to your healthcare.
    However I understand your situation, because I believe that almost all people with diabetes have used at least for a period such insulin (too).
    However, it is just not too alarmed, and wait for updates!
    Thanks for your contributions if you wish keep visiting this blog ... :-)

  15. 15 crjstina

    thanks simone, I have little nu 'rassicurata.Oggi the usual port control, so we see that the doctors give me answers and then I'll sapere.Saluti

  16. 16 cristina

    Today Dr. following my son, I was reassured about lantus; everything 'under control, otherwise they would have already' suspended somministrazione.Cmq research continues. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU DID YOU KNOW.

  17. 17 Simone

    As I told you, Cristina, is just not allarmasi and focused developments! When there will be news I think that people with diabetes will be the first to know, through the diabetology and associations. Hello, and good luck for the rest!

  18. 18 marine

    In my opinion the problem is extensible to all analogues. Everyone is a growth factor piùforte human insulin that the market policy is banning to make more money !!!!! ARE NECESSARY STUDIES LARGE SCALE !!!!!!!! MUST EVALUATE WELL AS A FACTOR 'IMPORTANT THERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!' HALF LIFE OF MANY PEOPLE !!!

  19. 19 susy

    28-10-2009 Today I went to visit the diabetes clinic where they are followed by believing that I would have changed the LANTUS I do for 5 years: the diabetologa that replaced but the official told me where she works, the OSP. Maggiore in Bologna, for now prefer not to change the wife of a colleague of my husband she also diabetic and in my situation to the contrary when it is presented in the center where he had followed the change of therapy with a similar without having nulla.CHIEDO ask: WHAT IS THE RIGHT TO KEEP IN BEHAVIOR THANK ?????????

  20. 20 Anubis

    Guys are talking about Pharmaceutical Companies, ie the worst criminals from the times of Dr. Mengele. What do you expect, they are the benefactors and they think lovingly to our / your health?
    They are merchants, and as such they behave. Could sell identical with tranquility landmines or hard drugs.
    The reason why in recent years have exited so many new types of insulin, is unclear. Or rather it is, but you can not say.

  21. 21 cristina

    then the same doctors who treat diabetes are as sruzzi ... .but I have a son who has to make even 14 years, 'cause I do not speak of this problem? ... I DO NOT TRUST THE MOST' OF NO.

  22. 22 dario

    hello all, after 20 years of therapy with insulin intermediate
    today my diabetologa advised me the Lantus, told me that should keep your blood sugar more stable in 24 hours and do not cause spikes ipoglicemici.Oltretutto advised me to pay no attention to what they write about cancer on the blog there is nothing true .What do ?? thanks

  23. 23 cristina

    dario dear, I counsel you to farla..tutti drugs have contraindications, also semlice aspirin; there 'nothing found, for now. hello

  24. 24 Simone

    Dear commentators! I apologize if I have not answered before. Unfortunately for people who expect more information I can only answer that at the moment there is nothing for sure: do not get to hasty conclusions either in a positive way or a negative, you have to wait some answers.
    Unfortunately I have to dissociate from those who use tones a bit 'too heavy, it would be better to keep some' moderation. Similarly, however, do not approve of either liquidate everything superficially. Here, in these things need to look into.
    What I never tire of repeating, however, is that YOU MUST FOLLOW THE SIGNS your diabetes, choosing a diabetologist of which has TRUST: only doctors can give the best indications.
    Finally, I'm collecting the latest news, I hope to publish a new article on the subject within a few weeks.
    That said, I greet all, and wish you a GOOD DAY WORLD DIABETES! Now it is almost: the event is scheduled for November 14 at the many events that we will be in all of Italy (sometimes will be postponed to 15). Contact your local association! Thanks for continuing to visit (and comment) my blog ... :-D

  25. 25 mario

    Today I was in the hospital x control foot diabetico.mentre I was there I took the opportunity to ask for advice on insulins and quantity, can not xche more control diabetes well as July 1 month of the start of radiotherapy x cancer prostate, I lantus the use by the end of 2006 and 2007 the psa was crazy segnandomi then tumore.SONO SHOCKED BECAUSE I WAS NOT AWARE OF EVERYTHING BUT WHAT disoriented me AND THAT THE DOCTOR TOLD ME TO BRING A LANTUS 44UNITA X BETTER CONTROL DIABETES AND REDUCE THE QUICK MEAL YESTERDAY nephrologist MI HAD SAID INSTEAD OF DECREASE THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN LANTUS BUT KNOW SOMETHING I HAVE DIABETES ARE FOR TRIALS AND ARE ALL IN GOOD FAITH HOPE I WILL THANK YOU

  26. 26 cristina

    Dear Mario, you shocked me too ...

  27. 27 Simone

    Hello Mario, I'm sorry for your story ... Unfortunately, it could also be a coincidence, then I would do the investigations or would await more news before coming to conclusions.
    The Lantus has made a small revolution in insulin therapy when it was invented, so it is normal to be prescribed by doctors and encouraged, because it certainly has many advantages and at the moment there are no reliable data on its alleged dangers. So do not worry too much!
    However I am convinced that, even if sometimes it happens that someone makes mistakes, these are made in good faith and are a result of human limitations. Scientific research and ingenuity of man always strive to minimize these errors, then the hope must never be lacking.
    I make wishes, the next ...

  28. 28 laura

    hello are laura
    I came to this site if I tried on medicinal products that have given to my mother after being ricoverata.Già we are in crisis for diabetes, then I read that too if avevte news let me know ok?
    Hello and thanks

  29. 29 Simone

    Hello Laura, do not worry, as I wrote serves great caution! I wanted to reassure you about diabetes: do not worry! Today you can live well and with normal even with it. Good luck.

  30. 30 vincenzo

    Hello are Vincenzo, I also now browsing I came by chance on this site and I was amazed at all that I read of Lantus.
    To be noted that the use for about four years and no powers not help it, I want to know some news less dramatic than I have read so far.
    Hello and thanks

  31. 31 Simone

    Hello Vincent, I suggest you read what has been written and commented repeatedly!

  32. 32 Cristina

    Best wishes to you all, I wrote a review a few months ago and today after reading your would like to talk briefly about my experience. My husband has diabetes since the age of four years, now has more than forty, we are together for about ten years. The quality of his life so far has been high, certainly everything that needs pace, awareness and greater control and self-education. A great contribution to the progress of the study on diabetes and correct information is given by the association of which he is part and struggling for decades for the civil rights of people with diabetes and associations for me really is a great treasure: through its numerous initiatives such an association pushes doctors, researchers, policy to listen more to the different experiences, to welcome initiatives, to improve the digestive health.
    When communication is correct everything is easier, this also helps to live better. So I ask as a citizen maximum transparency regarding the publication of studies, medical research, the ultimate freedom from economic choices and profit that may cause damage to the health of all of us because when it comes to health do not mess around, and I think no one , rewrite and no one should exploit diabetes to create profits to lobby policy. This is also why the associations of the families concerned, the people living in the first person as diabetes, their supporters must constantly expand, increasing numbers of members, grow and continue to be always present when dealing with issues related. In our city, the association works fine, my husband still continues to be followed medically from the center of Pisa.
    I'd like something that he also wrote of his experience, I will try to ask him.
    As for my experience, indirect, I must say that the foundation of a good practice is to live fully all aspects of life with rhythm and thoughtfulness, joy and love, practice recommended to all, moreover, a warm greeting Cristina Fabbrini Livorno

  33. 33 laura

    Good morning by here often to learn new things because my mother after a shelter was under care with this strange lantus.Ora is again hospitalized for cerebral ischemia resulting in paralysis of the limbs sinistri.La thing that makes me think is that they have suspended the medicine straight away but nn gave me explanations, someone can tell me if it is a coincidence or it may be the one to cause disease? thank you in advance a kiss hello Laura

  34. 34 raffaella

    I went to the event and reading this news filled me with terror and perplexity ... Use lantus since September 2006, so they are very much involved. Unfortunately the diabetologist I "follow" is not a big communicator, although I know it is considered a great scholar and who is very active in many fields related to diabetes.
    I run from him only controls a must, but I get messages huge superficiality and distraction, that do not make me trust him ... Especially in the beginning, when I crashed on this unexpected problem, I sought explanations, wondered in panic Complete news and support, but I felt settled with a simple "cerca de magna little cute!" ...
    Of course, today there are numerous means and ways to receive information, but perhaps a little 'sensitivity and humanity more would not hurt ...
    To feel in the company will come back to see you .... Thank You

  35. 35 giacomo

    I am 59 years old and I make use of lantus from 2004.purtroppo in April of 2009 I diagnosed a year adeno carcinoma of the rectum, have been operated at san filippo blacks of Rome, but it does not end here because in 2005 I had a tumor fortunately taken into time on the ropes vocali.per Please keep me informed on the developments of the issue that has opened on the use of lantus, are very preoccupato.grazie

  36. 36 Silvia

    Good evening, I carefully read all the speeches. During a routine check, I asked my diabetologist the possible carcinogenic effect of Lantus. I was told that in case of familiarity of cancer is not the most suitable type of insulin. As is my case I asked to suspend it and replace it. Since yesterday I inject the Levemir. Also an insulin from recombinant DNA, little known. Let's hope so! Silvia

  37. 37 Elizabeth

    you wrote that you would still published on lantus and cancer but I see nothing ...
    What I read bother me much.
    I have diabetes by 2006 (by stress or cortisone following a chemo) and make use of Lantus. In 2008 I had a second breast cancer than the previous one.
    What I read bother me much. But what to do?
    And yet someone knows what the drug companies that produce insulin transgenic?
    Thank You

  38. 38 frank

    I read the news about lantus, I was scioccata.Ho lantus started in 2005 and in November 2007 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, there are no cases of familiarity and later metastasis ossee.Ciò I spreoccupa molto.La research says cases of cancers in patients treated with lantus occurred after 1 year and a half and I return in casistica.Sono very concerned what do I do now even though my heart diabetic I replaced the lantus, but now I think it is late to correct .Thx

  39. 39 Melissa

    insisted strongly to prescribe the lantus ............... .. already you suffer from diabetes and increasing anxieties nn serves ............ .. now use the Levemir ......... ..spero nn has risks ............

  40. 40 Erika Precepts

    Hello everyone, I was already known that the lantus was carcinogenic, I learned by attending a seminar pharmacist researcher, to which I turned to slim me, and to cure diabetes in my grandmother who is 80 years old and 53 years have diabetes 1, after only a few days from the start of this feed my grandmother started to suspend not only insulin but all medicines, now it's been three months, and continues to heal with food and no longer with medicines.
    you understand that the economic interests crushes people and we can only shout to the world that there is fine, I do besides this I turned to Lemme, this pharmacist of Desio and I solved the problem.
    among other Wednesday evening, July 28 on Italian one will talk about this in a new transmission, however, I leave contact:

  42. 42 Piero

    Salve, ho letto le controidicazioni del Lantus publicate sul Vs. sito, parla del rischio cancro dopo un pò di tempo che si usa il Lantus.
    Mi potete far sapere se cè un tipo di insulina diversa da Lantus? Thank You

  43. 43 katia

    perchè i diabetologi continuano a far fare la lantus se questa può portare tumori? ho una bimba di 10 anni e fa la lantus da 5 anni.

  44. 44 lorenzo

    credendo fosse una cistite, dall'agosto scorso mi sono accorto del diabete dopo oaver fatto analisi che non facevo da trent'anni. Ora, dopo una settimana di day oospital in diabetologia mi hanno prescritto pasticchetta e lantus. Di lantus ne ho fatte 3 nel day e mai più dopo essere stato dimesso. Lo stik oggi mi dice (sto molto attento alla dieta e faccio movimento calcecco e calciotto nonostante oggi 15.12.010 festeggio il mio 64esimo compleanno) il valore idem del day. oscilla quindi da 90 a 150 mangiando più del prescritto ovviamente altrimenti sono arrivato anche ad 84. di pasticchetta anziche 3 ne prendo solo ouna al giorno ma ho intenzione di smettere al più presto anche con questo farmaco. saluti Lorenzo da San Benedetto del Tronto

  45. 45 katia

    Ciao sono katia
    è da 2 settimane che ho iniziato a fare il lantus,associate ad altre pasticche,
    casualmente girando sui web ,ho visitato questo forum e ne rimango basita.
    Da quando la uso ,ho notato già una maggiore ritenzione idrica e durante la notte mi si intorbidisce il braccio destro e nononostante, tutta l'attività fisica che faccio,sento la gamba destra non rispondere + tanto bene.
    Fino ad ora non avevo letto nemmeno il bugiardino all'interno della confezione ,per non impressionarmi,ed ora vedo che questo prodotto ha anche una buona percentuale effetti collaterali così drammatici.Ci dobbiamo affidare nelle mani del signore?

    E' possibile che non si riesce a conoscere gli esiti degli studi esguiti in varie nazioni sulla cancerosità della lantus?

  51. 51 Elisabetta

    Sinceramente tutto questo non mi sembra serio.
    Mettere dei dubbi sull'uso della lantus e non dare risposte non è serio!
    Si può essere un po' più concreti per cortesia?

  52. 52 gaetano

    Oggi 4 gennaio 2012 se la notizia della cancerogenosità non
    è stata smentità con relazione scientifica vuol dire che qualcosa non và, io penso di interrompere il suo uso, non vorrei che, come per l'uso delle sigarette, l'interesse economico fà nascondere la pericolosità del prodotto usato generando altre malattie; bastano i problemi che abbiamo e le loro negative evoluzioni.

    anche io vorrei sapere qualcosa di più sul Lantus che prendo da qualche mese,perchè leggendo qua e la su internet non si capisce mai chi dice il vero o no.Dato che la salute è un bene prezioso spero che Lei Simone ci aggiorni.GRAZIE

    Mio padre era diabetico è viveva “bene” con tre punture al giorno prima dei pasti poi per ridurle ad una lo abbiamo convinto per ad usare l'insulina glargine dell'Aventis-Senofi (la Lantus) contro il parere del suo diabetologo.
    La sola Lantus però non riusciva a controllare i livelli e ha dovuto ricominciare a farsi anche le punture che si faceva prima di ogni pasto, totale quattro punture al giorno invece di tre.
    Dopo circa 1 anno e mezzo dall'inizio dell'uso della Lantus, durante gli esami periodici di controllo, gli è stato diagnosticato un tumore incurabile al fegato, è morto dopo 9 mesi.

    Salve a tutti.qualcuno conosce il farmaco in sperimentazione per il diabete 1 che sarebbe in grado di bloccare in maniera specifica gli anticorpi contro le cellule beta? Si chiama DIAPEP grazie

    Sono diabetico di tipo 2 dal 1992 dal2001 insulino dipendente trattato con l'umalog nel 2005 trattato con la
    Lantus e ad oggi, pur facendo i test tumorali risultano
    nella norma

    Sono vent'anni che soffro di diabete mellito di tipo2,curato con l'assunzione di pastiglie giornaliere.Ho sempre cercato di mantenere entro limiti accettabili i valori glicemici,riuscendoci,con delle eccezioni;-Ospiti a pranzo o cena,influenza di stagione,raffreddore.Va bene invece in estate,quasi sempre nei limiti previsti.Non ero soddisfatto,volevo qualcosa di pù dalla terapia,sempre la stessa,e vecchia di venti anni.Mi sono rivoltoad un centro considerato una eccellenza nel campo della cura del diabete e mi è stato detto:-Le pastiglie che stai usando sono pericolose(Uso Glibomet)specie per chi,come te,ha subito un infarto.Le tue condizioni attuali di salute sono buone,se vuoi migliorare devi passare all'uso di insulina,la sera,
    (l'insulina in oggetto è la Lantus)e dopo i vari consigli mi si dice:-Se lei accetta l'uso dell'insulina,può venire senz'altro da me.Non mi è parso un discorso logico,io cercavo una terapia sostitutiva alla mia,più efficiente,più moderna e principalmente più sicura e solo per questo mi ero rivolto ad un luminare,non mi aspettavo questo stato di fatto,o così o niente,al che mi è parso chiaro che ogni centro utilizza(o sperimenta)una determinata terapia con prodotti di una certa casa farmaceutica.Voi cosa ne pensate?

    sono appena venuto a conoscenza di questo fatto in quanto il farmacista non mi riesce più a trovare la lantus…io la uso da oltre 4 anni, faccio 4 iniezioni al giorno (3 a pranzo più la lantus per la giornata). mai avuto problemi effettuando tutti i controlli di routine. spero si arrivi ad una soluzione per continuare con la terapia.

  59. 59 enzo

    Da un mese sto usando l'insulina lantus per curare il mio diabete di tipo 2 che non riuscivo più a tenere sotto controllo.Ho iniziato con sei unità ed attualmente siamo a 12 unità,ma non ho migliorato di niente,anzi ho peggiorato.Sono in cura presso il centro antidiabetico di Perugia,considerato uno dei centri di eccellenza in Italia.Se non mi posso fidare neanche di loro,non saprei proprio più ache santo votarmi.Speriamo bene.Certo gli interessi in gioco sono enormi,e per questo non ci sarebbe da stupirsi che la scoperta di queste possibili conseguenze sia stata realizzata da una casa concorrente.

    Da alcuni mesi, sotto prescrizione del medico del centro antidiabetico dove sono in cura sto assumendo l'insulina Lantus alla dose di 18 unità giornaliere più la Nova Rapid prima dei pasti. Da un po di tempo mi sono comparsi degli strani foruncoli sul viso, di colore rossastro, che varia a seconda delle dimensioni degli stessi, preceduti da chiazze sempre rossastre sulla pelle, ne stanno uscendo sempre più numerosi, di varie dimensioni in varie parti della faccia fino a deturparla,allora non so se questo possa essere uno degli effetii collaterali di questo farmaco che qui si dice addirittura cancerogeno, comunque a giorni andrò a consultarmi dal dermatologo, ma questa notizia la trovo molto inquietante.

    Hello, I enjoy reading through your article. I like to write a little comment to support you.

    ho il diabete da 22 anni adesso ne ho 30,
    io lavoro spesso come tecnico audio nelle conferenze e vi assicuro che si curano SOLTANTO del fatturato e di pararsi il culo legalmente,
    ora leggo della lantus e rimango sconvolto visto che la faccio da nemmeno mi ricordo da quando….
    siamo soli.
    dal diabetologo prima entra un infermiere per una ricetta , poi entrano 4 studenti che ti trattano come un “caso clinico”, poi gli squilla il cellulare…. lui, il diabetologo è bravissimo ma solo e stressato….
    ti senti come in una catena di montaggio li dentro….
    noi diabetici non contiamo veramente niente rispetto alle case farmaceutiche…
    odio gli “informatori scentifici” gente che si guadagna da vivere cacciando medici e convincendoli a prescrivere il proprio farmaco…..
    è una lotta vera la loro, dove si giocano MILIONI di euro.
    e tutto sulle spalle mie, nostre… li mortacci loro
    se esiste un'associazione di diabetici VERA che si interessa veramente a noi potreste segnalarmela?

    is a very well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to read
    more of your useful information. Thanks for the post.
    I will definitely return.

    Scusatemi, ma dal 2009 O ad oggi non si è saputo nulla? Non ci capisco più niente. Tutti allo sbaraglio. Io ho letto questa notizia, l'ho detta al mio medico curante che non sa niente, l'ho detta alla mia diabetologa che non sa niente, e allora? Io per adesso faccio Levemir e se non ci saranno notizie certe e sicure, non ritorno a Lantus, che nella realtà era migliore, ma sembra più
    rischiosa. L'unica cosa che chiedo è: cosa possiamo fare? a chi ci possiamo rivolgere? Certo che non possiamo continuare così.

    Thank you ffor another fantastic post. The plae else could anyoine gett that type off information in such a pdrfect approach of writing?
    I hve a presentation subseqhent week, and I'm on the
    look for such information.

  66. 66 riki

    l'ho comprato stasera e nel cercare sul web ulteriori istruzioni sugli effetti collaterali ho aperto questo link leggendo tutti i commenti e rimanendo choccato…..aspetto la visita dalla diabetologa del 21.11.2013 prima di prender una decisione. io sto medicinale col cavolo lo prendo , la sperimentazione dei farmaci sulla mia pelle non ci penso nemmeno a farla fare per procurare profitti miliardari alle case farmaceutiche che a noi non fan pagare nulla perchè abbiam l'esenzione per patologia, ma ti uccide col cancro.

    OUhhhhh, sveglia non si sa più niente?
    Dormite tutti?
    I o sono passato a Levemir, ma aspetto notizia perché con Lantus era un'altra cosa, ma questi sospetti………………..
    Popolo di diabetici e non, fateci sapere, noi aspettiamo mentre…..

  69. 69 riki

    la mia diabetologa, giura e spergiura che verso lantus è stata solo una campagna di diffamazione che la concorrenza ha messo in atto e che studi approfonditi non hanno mai dimostrato le teorie di cancro e di star tranquillo. stessa cosa me l'ha detta un dirigente di una nota casa farmaceutica. speriamo bene….son convinto che nessuno mai
    ci dirà quale siano gli effetti di tutti i farmaci da noi assunti.

    He added that patients using isulnin may be compared to patients not using isulnin, which might be a gigantic methodological mistake. People using isulnin are usually much older and have been diabetic for many years. Well hmmmm, my daughter is 15yrs old and has been on isulnin since 3 yrs old so what's older and what's many years I find these statements troubling when in my reality it's the very young that may be put at risk The science is not clear and this was sooooo not conclusive when I know Lantus is NOT exclusive for the old diabetic studies like this trouble me because they do not address the dynamically different demographics that Lantus is used in and well Type 1s are for life and ah unknown risk at this stage of the game

    Non sono un medico ma un diabetico di tipoII!Pero'sono appassionato di Medicina!Proprio in questi giorni mi e' stato prescritto il Novorapid dopo i pasti, ed il Lantus la sera, oltre al novorapid!Bene,Mi pongo questa domanda:se la notte io non mi cibo, (a parte la sera), il mio pancreas a digiuno non dovrebbe produrre insulina.Perche' dunque devo fare 18 unita' di lanthus (dopo le 4 di Novorapid) prima di dormire?Forse perche' si presume che io sogni di mangiarmi una bella crostata ed il sogno, attraverso il SN, dandomi magari tanta gratificazione e sazieta', di zuccheri ne produca a iosa anche se inesistenti? Il Mellito, (se il Pancreas non e' partito ,) lo si dovrebbe curare con la dieta e con il movimento,e non con l'insulina!
    Ma qual' e' il ruolo del Lanthus se io la notte non mi cibo ma dormo?Se riposo e non mangio gli zuccheri non li produco.Che senso ha fare dunque il Lanthus di notte?(anche se ad erogazione lenta?)Esiste un diabetologo che sappia rispondermi con chiarezza, anche sotto il profilo Biochimico?
    Son convinto di no !Sbaglio a pensarla cosi'?
    Quanto vorrei parlare con una persona competente!…..!!!!
