LegalView Updates Avandia Information Portal to Include Latest Development Concerning the Diabetes Drug Raising Osteoporosis Risk
December 17, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsDenver, CO - LegalView.com remains the number one site for legal information on the Web as it updates one of its many legal information portals that serve to help those suffering from preventable diseases, illnesses and unfortunate accidents. LegalView recently updated its Avandia information portal after reports that the diabetes drug has been linked to an increased risk of osteoporosis. A recent study conducted by the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California has revealed that long term use of the drug, which is also known as rosiglitazone, caused an increase of bone fractures and breaks among patients. Avandia is a Type II diabetes drug marketed by GlaxoSmithKline and is used to improve the response to insulin, according to news reports. However, tests have shown that the drug, over long periods of time, also increases bone degradation cell activity.
LegalView.com reminds users of the drug that it is important for individuals to contact a lawyer specializing in Avandia in order to receive consultation on what to do if experiencing any negative Avandia side effects that may have occurred or will occur because of long term use of the drug. Not only did GlaxoSmithKline acknowledge the increased risk of bone fractures and breaks among patients taking the drug, especially in older women, but the company did little to make users aware of this increased risk. Because of this, users are advised to seek attorney consultation to better understand the legalities of their case.
LegalView not only provides resources for diabetes patients taking Avandia, but also offers a plethora of other legal resources for issues including traumatic brain injury accidents as well as illnesses such as mesothelioma and Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF). Hundreds of traumatic brain injuries occur daily in the United States and victims often feel helpless after a traumatic brain injury occurs, which is why LegalView makes it easy to find information regarding traumatic brain injuries or to locate a brain injury law firm to help a brain injury victim have a better understanding of what they should. One of the most important legal issues the LegalView provides resources for is mesothelioma.

NSF is another rare illness about which LegalView provides extensive information for victims.
