What is NDMA?

NDMA has been classified as a probable carcinogen by the FDA, the World Health Organization, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Typically, NDMA is used as a research chemical, but it can appear in some medications and other substances as a byproduct of production. Long-term exposure to NDMA can increase the risk of several types of cancer, including stomach, liver, and colorectal cancer.

Complications Caused by Metformin

Patients who regularly took Metformin to manage their diabetes, and who may have seen long-term exposure to excess levels of NDMA, may suffer an increased risk of several types of cancer. Along with an increased risk of developing cancer, NDMA exposure can also result in:

  • Severe headaches
  • Enlarged liver
  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Severe stomach cramping

Consumers Were Never Warned About a Cancer Risk

Lawsuits against the manufacturers of Metformin and other diabetes drugs that may contain excessively high levels of NDMA allege that the manufacturers failed to warn consumers about the potential risk associated with exposure to NDMA.

Many people took Metformin to help manage their diabetes. Companies have a legal responsibility to warn consumers about any known safety risk associated with using their products. By concealing the risk before the recall and failing to properly inform consumers about the risks they might face, manufacturers recklessly put people in danger of developing cancer. When this happens, manufacturers and big drug companies deserve to be held accountable for their actions. Jimmy Knows™ what it takes to get his clients the justice and compensation they deserve from careless companies.

Why Did Metformin Get Recalled?

The Metformin recall aims to ensure that any Metformin given to diabetes patients in the United States does not contain unsafe levels of NDMA. Unfortunately, routine testing revealed high levels of NDMA in some types of Metformin on the market, primarily including extended-release versions of Metformin. The FDA recommends that patients prescribed Metformin to manage their diabetes continue taking Metformin until they contact their doctors to arrange for a substitute.
