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

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

Cartucce di insulina Lantus A survey of 127,000 patients with diabetes in Germany have found that people who regularly use the Lantus has 31% more chance of developing cancer over a period of one 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, although there are some conflicting data. The Food and Drug Administration has opened an investigation to pursue the matter.

This is a preliminary research that certainly goes in-depth with further study before arriving at a definitive answer, as admitted by the authors of the scientific publication. However, there was great confusion triggered by the news, along with the sensation exploded in diabetes. But above all is the great dismay that crosses many people with diabetes who use that insulin, which ask for certain answers and quick fixes. It is important to remember, however, that patients treated with Lantus must not discontinue treatment without the consent of your physician diabetologist.

Even from the financial point of view there has been a collapse in stock price 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 a vaccine against the famous "swine flu", also known as swine flu.

Immediately after the stock market crash, the Sanofi Aventis has seen fit to issue a number of press, 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? Physicians who prescribe Lantus? Or maybe the shareholders who buy stocks? The fear is that we forget the people. Because the money and interests that revolve around these topics are many, indeed 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 about the carcinogenicity of Lantus already 2 years ago, although at that time no one spoke, and there was nothing confirmed about it, but because the news came just now, conquering the most important media and newspapers worldwide? Perhaps because of the noise amplified by the stock market crash? Or maybe because the economic interests demanded that things were going well?

You have to pretend rather than at the center of the issue there is the person with diabetes and his health. Rather than reassure "a priori", it would be good for all, including Sanofi Aventis, would take in hand the results of the study seriously, and to flesh out urgently with new research, in order to give a definite answer on Lantus and rapid, with the hope that This insulin is actually safe for all who use it. We hope that this is the path taken by all companies, associations of diabetes, and scientific bodies. Emphasizing the centrality of the person before everything else because it serves the ethical economy, especially in pharmacology, where it comes in the lives of people. We await answers.

    And 'urgent understand if 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 drug 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 and similar insulin that doctors will wake up from slumber and fight for their patients, Cristina Fabbrini

  2. 2 Simone

    Cristina, thanks for the comment, you're absolutely right: it must be remembered, however, that at the moment there is neither confirmed nor denied certain. We hope then to be made as soon as the light of this disturbing news, and let's keep up to date. As soon as I know more I will know myself on this blog. See you soon!

  3. 3 Ann @

    Wordless !!
    And who until this morning used the LANTUS ????
    Unaware of all ???
    Mha we'll see.
    The fact is that ...... no wonder bosogna 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 has taken care, 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 !!!
    in addition to the db even 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

    Hello guys.
    I am the mother of a boy who is diabetic since 10 years ago and the lantus and a sports at a competitive level.
    Coincidentally I read your article on the blog and of course I worry about the health of my child.
    As far as I know the results were preliminary and not confirmed by definitive news.
    What are your sources to express this certainty? Can you tell me some name or an email address to which to write to in order to have evidence of this risk you take doing the lantus?
    This risk relates only to the use of lantus or in general of the insulins slow - fast - super fast, etc. ..?
    It is not that, like mad cow disease in 2001, the avian flu in 2003 or more, we are bombarded by so many messages of alarm and then when you go to search 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 of the lantus and the company that produces it with its economic interests, there could be also the economic interests of competing companies to help lift this mess?

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

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

    Mara

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

  7. 7 Simone

    Dear Robert, I am 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: you should be familiar with the reasons that led to this decision the primary, his choice will certainly be supported by his medical experience. It is said that this choice is related to the news of Lantus, and a fortiori it is not said that the news is linked to the misfortune happened to your relative. Surely it would be worrying to find out that it is! But this is not for us to judge him: the doctors and scientists will do their job.
    You my best wishes, to you and to your cousin's son, 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. Go ahead to know your cousin that with this blog we are close to his son. Thank you so much of the testimony, and we salute you ...
    Simone

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

  8. 8 Simone

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

    I'll answer you point by point:
    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 a 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) I ask: "What are your sources to express this certainty?" As you can clearly read in my article, I have not expressed any certainty on this issue, in fact, I've 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, "CAN carcinogenic effect", "WOULD therefore dangerous", "SUSPICIOUS cancer" ... As you can see, no certainty, indeed: you may quote me on that passage would have told you this? In this case it would be a mistake. Even in responding to the comments seemed to be clear.
    4) You say: "As far as I knew the results were preliminary and not confirmed by definitive news." If you read the article, I wrote exactly the same thing, namely, that: "This is a preliminary research that certainly goes in-depth with further study before arriving at a definitive answer ..."
    5) I wonder if this risk is related only to Lantus with any other insulin or even 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 have never appointed any other insulin (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 others, 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 morality. Similarly write on this blog what goes through my head so genuine and sincere, without external influences of any kind: I never happened, or at least I could never accept it. As I have written clearly on a page since the birth of the site, this blog is written purely personal and sporty as a boy with diabetes (see "Information> Warnings").
    9) I wonder if on the contrary if your intervention is truly disinterested, or whether in your professional career you have to deal with some of the 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 of the EASD, and bottom of the article I put a link to a specific page. Immediately below I put (for correctness) is also a link to page managed by Sanofi Aventis where there are data in support of the Lantus. Other sources on which I have documented are several articles you read in the foreign press: this news in the world has had a lot of visibility (the Italian media on the other hand have been pretty 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 that I have answered all your questions. I also hope to have further specified (for those who have not already guessed) that the purpose of the article is not to condemn, creating alarm or give definite answers, but simply to inform on an international news, and to ask for reliable answers a confirmation or denial, for the good of all.
    So I invite you to reread the article again more carefully ... If I still had something to ask leave even a new comment, I'll be happy to answer! Thank you, and goodbye
    Simone

    I wanted to know if and 'only the lantus or all insulin preparations generally 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 send best regards and thanks that never hurts

  10. 10 lucky

    I do not know what I wanted to ask you asked him I just hope that as usual there there is half the money that I think Mr. deaths becomes more of a war ok greetings to all

  11. 11 Simone

    Hi Luck! 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 about. First, because the news in question concerns only and exclusively the Lantus, and secondly because even for Lanus at the moment 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 mixed, and not everyone agrees. The 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 certainly will keep you updated your diabetologist, have this to him ...
    For the second comment on the money ... Unfortunately, you're right, sometimes the money is managed without any ethics and create damage to so 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: you my best wishes! 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 have always done between about 12 and 15 units giornaliere.RESTA THE FACT THAT THERE 'LIMIT THE CRAP THAT WE SURROUND

  13. 13 cristina

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

  14. 14 Simone

    Care Susanna and Christina, I wanted to reassure you about the Lantus: The news spoke of a preliminary hypothesis pending investigations, nothing for sure then. What advice is not to worry too much at this time, and possibly ask for more information about your healthcare.
    However, I understand your situation because I think almost all people with diabetes have used at least for a period long enough insulin (including myself).
    However, it is just not too alarmed, and wait for updates!
    Thank you for your contributions: if you wish keep visiting this blog ... :-)

    Today Dr. following my son, I was reassured about the 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 await developments! When I think there will be news that people with diabetes will be the first to know, through the diabetes and associations. Hello, and good luck for the rest!

    According to me the problem is extensible to all insulin analogues. Everyone is a growth factor piùforte human insulin market is that the policy of banning to make more money !!!!!

    28-10-2009 Today I went to visit the diabetes clinic where they are followed by believing that I would have changed the LANTUS that I make from 5 years: the diabetologist that replaced but the officer told me that where she works, the OSP. Maggiore in Bologna, for now prefer not to change the terapia.la wife of a colleague of my husband she also diabetic and in the same situation when the contrary was presented in the center where you had followed the change of therapy with a similar without having to nulla.CHIEDO ask: WHAT IS THE CONDUCT RIGHT TO KEEP ????????? THANKS

  20. 20 Anubis

    Guys we are talking about Pharmaceutical Companies, that the worst criminals from the days of Dr. Mengele. What do you expect, they are benefactors and think lovingly to our / your health?
    They are merchants, and as such they behave. They could sell with the same tranquility anti-personnel mines or drugs.
    The reason why in recent years have exited so many new types of insulin, is not clear. Or rather it is, but you can not tell.

  21. 21 cristina

    then the same doctors who treat diabetes are as sruzzi ... but I have a son who has to make yet 14 years old, 'cause I do not speak of this problem? ... I DO NOT TRUST THE MOST' NOBODY.

  22. 22 dario

    hello all, after 20 years of insulin therapy with intermediate
    today my diabetologist advised me the Lantus, I said it should keep your blood sugar more stable in 24 hours and do not cause spikes ipoglicemici.Oltretutto advised me not to pay attention to what they write about cancer on the blog there is nothing true .that do ?? thanks

  23. 23 cristina

    dario dear, I advise you to farla..tutti drugs have contraindications, even semlice aspirin, there 'nothing found, yet. hello

  24. 24 Simone

    Dear commentators! I apologize if I have not answered before. Unfortunately for those who wants 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 or negative, you have to wait for answers.
    Unfortunately I have to disassociate from those who use tones a bit 'too heavy, it would be better to keep a little' moderation. Similarly, however, do not approve of nor liquidate everything superficially. Here, in these things serves to deepen.
    What I never tire of repeating, however, is that you MUST FOLLOW THE SIGNS your diabetes, choosing a healthcare professional that you have CONFIDENCE: only doctors can give the best indications.
    To conclude, 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 HAPPY WORLD DIABETES DAY! Now it is almost: the appointment is for 14 November at the many events that we will be in Italy (sometimes will be postponed to 15). Contact your local association! Thank you for continuing to visit (and comment on) my blog ... :-D

  25. 25 mario

    today I was in the hospital x foot control diabetico.mentre I was there I took the opportunity to ask for advice on insulin and the amount, I can not xche more control diabetes well as July 1st month of the start of radiation therapy to the tumor x prostate, I use lantus the end of 2006 and in 2007 the psa had gone mad segnandomi then tumore.SONO SHOCKED BECAUSE I WAS NOT AWARE OF EVERYTHING BUT WHAT disoriented me AND THAT THE DOCTOR TOLD ME TO BRING THE LANTUS A 44UNITA X BETTER CONTROL DIABETES AND REDUCE THE QUICK MEALS YESTERDAY nephrologist MI HAD SAID INSTEAD OF DECREASE THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN MA LANTUS KNOW SOMETHING I HAVE DIABETES AND ARE FOR EFFORTS 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, however, could also be a coincidence, then I would do would await the findings or new 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 has always strive to minimize such errors, then hope must never miss.
    I make wishes, the next ...

    Hello, I am laura

    Hello, I am Vincent, I also came in for the event today by navigating on this site and I was amazed at everything I've read about the 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 the ones 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

    Un caro saluto a voi tutti, scrissi un commento qualche mese fa e quest'oggi dopo aver letto i vostri vorrei parlare brevemente della mia esperienza. Mio marito ha il diabete dall'età di quattro anni, adesso ne ha più di quaranta, siamo insieme da circa dieci anni. La qualità della sua vita finora è stata alta, certamente tutto quanto necessita di ritmo, consapevolezza e maggior controllo e autoeducazione. Un grande contributo al progresso dello studio sul diabete e all'informazione corretta è dato dall'associazione di cui egli fa parte e che lotta da decenni per i diritti civili dei diabetici e davvero l'associazionismo per me rappresenta un grande tesoro: attraverso le sue numerose iniziative un'associazione di questo tipo spinge i medici,i ricercatori, la politica ad ascoltare maggiormente le diverse esperienze, ad accogliere iniziative, a migliorare l'apparato sanitario.
    Quando la comunicazione è corretta tutto è più semplice, anche questo aiuta a vivere meglio. Per questo chiedo come cittadina il massimo della trasparenza riguardo alla pubblicazione di studi, ricerche mediche, il massimo della libertà da scelte economiche e di profitto che possano arrecare dei danni alla salute di noi tutti poiché quando si parla di salute non si scherza e credo nessuno, e riscrivo nessuno deve sfruttare il diabete per creare profitti alle lobby e alla politica. Anche per questo motivo le associazioni delle famiglie interessate,delle persone che vivono in prima persona il diabete, dei loro sostenitori debbano costantemente allargarsi , aumentare i numeri di soci,crescere e continuare ad essere sempre presenti quando si affrontano tematiche inerenti . Nella nostra città l'associazione lavora benissimo, mio marito comunque continua ad essere seguito medicalmente dal centro di Pisa.
    Mi piacerebbe che anch'egli scrivesse qualcosa della sua esperienza, proverò a chiederglielo.
    Per ciò che concerne la mia di esperienza , indiretta , devo dire che il fondamento di una buona prassi sia quello di vivere pienamente tutti gli aspetti della vita con ritmo e ponderatezza , allegria e amore, prassi consigliata a tutti d'altronde, un caro saluto Cristina Fabbrini Livorno

  33. 33 laura

    Buon giorno entro spesso qui per sapere cose nuove dato che mia madre dopo un ricovero era sotto cura con con questa strana lantus.Ora è di nuovo ricoverata per un ischemia celebrale con la conseguenza di una paralisi agli arti sinistri.La cosa che mi fa pensare è che gli hanno sospeso subito il farmaco ma nn mi hanno dato spiegazioni,qualcuno sa dirmi se è un caso o se può essere quello a causare la malattia?vi ringrazio in anticipo un bacio ciao Laura

  34. 34 raffaella

    Sono entrata per caso e la lettura di questa notizia mi ha riempito di terrore e di perplessità… Uso lantus dal settembre 2006 , dunque sono coinvolta moltissimo. Purtroppo il diabetologo che mi “segue” non è un grosso comunicatore , anche se so che viene considerato un grande studioso e che è molto attivo in molti campi riguardanti il diabete.
    Io eseguo da lui solo i controlli d'obbligo, ma ricevo messaggi di enorme superficialità e distrazione, tali da non farmi avere fiducia in lui… Specialmente all'inizio , quando mi è precipitato addosso questo inatteso problema, cercavo spiegazioni, chiedevo nel panico più completo notizie e sostegno, ma mi son sentita liquidare con un banale ” cerca de magnà poco carina!”…
    Certo, oggi non mancano i mezzi ed i modi per ricevere informazioni, ma forse un po' di sensibilità e di umanità in più non guasterebbe…
    Per sentirmi in compagnia tornerò a trovarvi…. Thank you

  35. 35 giacomo

    Ho 59 anni e faccio uso di lantus dal 2004.purtroppo ad aprile del 2009 mi anno diagnosticato un adeno carcinoma al retto,sono stato operato al san filippo neri di roma,ma non finisce qui perchè nel 2005 ho avuto un tumore per fortuna preso in tempo alle corde vocali.per favore tenetemi informato sugli sviluppi della questione che si è aperta sull'uso del lantus,sono molto preoccupato.grazie

  36. 36 Silvia

    Buonasera ho letto con attenzione tutti gli interventi. Durante un controllo di routine, ho chiesto al mio diabetologo dei possibili effetti cancerogeni della Lantus. Mi è stato risposto che in caso di familiarità di tumore non è il tipo di insulina più adatta. Poichè è il mio caso ho chiesto di sospenderla e di sostituirla. Da ieri mi inietto la Levemir. Anch'essa un'insulina da dna ricombinante, poco conosciuta. Speriamo bene! Silvia

  37. 37 Elisabetta

    Simone,
    hai scritto che avresti pubblicato ancora su lantus e cancro ma non vedo nulla…
    Ciò che ho letto mi preoccupa molto.
    Ho il diabete dal 2006 (da stress o da cortisone in seguito ad una chemio) e faccio uso di Lantus. Nel 2008 ho avuto un secondo carcinoma mammario diverso da quello precedente.
    Quello che ho letto mi preoccupa molto. Ma che fare?
    Ed ancora qualcuno sa quali sono le case farmaceutiche che producono insulina transgenica?
    Thank you

  38. 38 franca

    14/04/10
    ho letto le notizie sulla lantus,sono rimasta scioccata.Ho iniziato la lantus nel 2005 e nel novembre 2007 mi è stato diagnosticato un carcinoma mammario non ci sono casi di famigliarità ed in seguito metastasi ossee.Ciò mi spreoccupa molto.La ricerca dice che i casi di tumori in pazienti trattati con la lantus si sono verificati dopo 1 anno e mezzo e io rientro nella casistica.Sono molto preoccupata cosa devo fare anche se adesso il mio centro diabetico mi ha sostituito la lantus,ma ormai credo sia tardi per porvi rimedio.Grazie

  39. 39 Melissa

    hanno insistito con forza per prescrivermi la lantus…………….. gia di diabete si soffre e aumentare le ansie nn serve………….. ora uso la levemir………..spero nn abbia rischi…………

  40. 40 Erika Precetti

    ciao a tutti, a me era già noto che il lantus fosse cancerogeno, l'ho appreso frequentando un seminario di un farmacista ricercatore, al quale mi sono rivolta per dimagrire io, e per curare il diabete a mia nonna che ha 80 anni e da 53 anni soffre di diabete 1, dopo solo pochi giorni dall'inizio di questa alimentazione mia nonna ha iniziato a sospendere non solo insulina ma tutti i medicinali, ora sono passati tre mesi e continua a curarsi col cibo e non più con i medicinali.
    si capisce bene che l'interesse economico schiaccia le persone e noi possiamo solo urlare al mondo che non ci va bene, io oltre a questo mi sono rivolta a Lemme, questo farmacista di Desio e ho risolto il problema.
    tra l'altro mercoledì sera, il 28 luglio su italia uno parlerà di questo in una nuova trasmissione, comunque vi lascio il contatto: http://www.filosofialimentare.it
    meglio curarsi col cibo che con i farmaci,
    Erika

  41. 41 franco

    leggo questa notizia allarmente,io ho una figlia che fa quetsa insulina ,voglio solo sapere se per una volta nn prevale ,da parte dell'azinda l'igordigia dei soldi e ci dica la verità ,perchè su la vita umana basta a scherzare

  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?

    Greetings to all
    Sono un diabetico insulina dipentente dal 1975, e linsulina Lantus miè
    stata ordinata all'inizio che e stata messa in commercio, ma non avrei mai pensato che poteva essere dannosa fino a questo punto. rigrazio a tutti dell'informazione,perchè da questa mattina smetterò di somministrarmi la Lantus e cercherò di trovarne unaltra per sostituirla.
    Quello che più di tutto mi fa paura che finanziariamente siamo in un monto di avvoltoi. ringrazio a tutti della grande notizia

    io ho perso il conto di quanti anni ormai sono che faccio la lantus.. sono diab da quando avevo 6 anni e ora ne ho 23.. non ci voglio neanche pensare.

    ho il diabete da quando avevo 11 anni ho preso il morbillo 2 volte e ho fatto 4 punture di penicellina per guarire. uno studio americano dice che la penicellina potrebbe essere una causa.adesso faccio 44 anni in generale sto bene uso la lantus da 2 anni ma ho diversi disturbi anche se il glucosio e tra 90 e 100 ho parecchi disturbi di digestione non vorrei che siano dovuti a questa insulina della quale faccio 14 unita la mattina e 14 la sera tenetemi informato grazie (spero di arrivare almeno a 80 anni ciaoooo)

    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.

  53. 53 franco

    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
    in the standard

    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?

  58. 58 matteo

    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.

    For several months under doctor's prescription diabetes nurse where I am taking care in the Lantus insulin dosage of 18 units per day plus the Nova Rapid before meals. For some time I have appeared strange pimples on the face, reddish in color, which varies depending on the size of the same, always preceded by reddish patches on the skin, they are coming out more and more numerous, of various sizes in various parts of the face up to spoiling it, then I do not know if this can be one of the effetii side effects of this drug that it says here even carcinogenic, however, in a few days I'm going to consult a dermatologist, but this news I find it very disturbing.

    I have diabetes for 22 years now I have 30,
    I often work as a technician in the audio conference and I assure you that care ONLY turnover and cover your ass legally,
    Now I read the lantus and I am upset because I can not even remember from since. ...
    we are alone.
    by diabetologist before entering a nurse for a recipe, then enter 4 students who treat you like a "clinical case", then the phone rings. ... him, the diabetologist is very good ... but lonely and stressed out.
    you feel like in an assembly line in there. ...
    we diabetics do not count really nothing compared to pharmaceutical ...
    I hate the "informants by scientist" people who earn their living by hunting and by convincing doctors to prescribe the right medication is ... ..
    is a real fight them, where you play MILLIONS of euro.
    and all on my shoulders, our li ... Fuck them
    TRUE if there is an association of people with diabetes who are really interested in us you might segnalarmela?

    more of your useful information. Thanks for the post.
    I will definitely return.

    Excuse me, but from 2009 to the present O has not heard anything? I do not understand anything anymore. All the fray. I read this news, I said to my doctor that does not know anything, I said to my diabetologist who knows nothing, so what? I now do for Levemir and if there will be some news and safe, non-return Lantus, which in reality was better, but it seems more
    risky. The only thing I ask is: what can we do? who can we turn to? Of course we can not continue like this.

  65. 65 maxi dresses

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

    I bought it tonight and search the web for further instructions on the side effects I opened this link reading all the comments and being shocked ... ..aspetto visit from the diabetologist before 21/11/2013 to take a decision. I'm with the cabbage I take medicine, drug testing on my skin do not even think to do it in order to procure profits to pharmaceutical billionaires that we're not paying anything because we have the exemption for pathology, but kill you with cancer.

    OUhhhhh, wake up you do not know anything more?
    Sleep all?
    I or I switched to Levemir, but expect news because with Lantus was something else, but these suspicions .................. ..

  69. 69 riki

    my diabetologist, who swears to lantus was just a smear campaign that competition has put in place and that extensive studies have never shown the theories of cancer and not to worry. same thing to me has said an executive of a well-known pharmaceutical company. hopefully good ... .son convinced that no one ever
    will tell what are the effects of all the drugs that we consume.

    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
