Men Lipitor Lawsuits

Men File Lipitor Lawsuits, Study Indicates Diabetes Risk

A new study is prompting Men to File Lipitor lawsuits due to an increased risk of Diabetes in men who take satins including Lipitor and Crestor. A study was released in late April that indicates that men who take Lipitor are at an 46% higher risk to suffer from diabetes vs men who do not take lipitor. Previously multiple lawsuits have been filed on behalf of women who take lipitor, but now there is a possibility of multiple lawsuits filed over lipitor on behalf of men. In addition to the increased risk of diabetes the study states that lipitor changes in insulin resistance and insulin secretion. Lipitor can cause nearly a 25% reduction in insulin sensitivity. In portion this new Lipitor study states

Statin therapy was associated with a 46% increased risk of type 2 diabetes after adjustment for confounding factors, suggesting a higher risk of diabetes in the general population than previously reported.

This latest Lipitor and Satin study comes out of Finland and was conducted with nearly 9000 men. The study was limited to white men and is not clear if these diabetes risk carries over to women and other ethnic groups. Nearly 29 million people suffer from diabetes in the United States. The men in this latest lipitor study were between 45 and 73 years old.

On the heels of this latest lipitor study over 2,000 people have filed Lipitor lawsuits against Pfizer. There were nearly 500 lipitor lawsuits filed in Jan and now there are over 2000 lipitor lawsuits filed in Federal court. There is now a Lipitor MDL in South Carolina which will centralize the Lipitor Litigation. As of now plaintiffs are conducting the discovery process of the lipitor lawsuits which will eventually be followed by lipitor bellwether trials. Like other pharma litigation, these lipitor lawsuits are claiming that Pfizer did not properly warn patients and doctors of the increased risk of diabetes associates with Lipitor. These lipitor lawsuits were previously filed by woman after a study was released claiming that woman who took lipitor were at a 50% higher risk to suffer from diabetes. Now male lipitor lawsuits are being filed after studies indicate diabetes risks for men how take lipitor. The FDA ordered label updates after the studies linking women and diabetes risks.

The first Lipitor Bellwether trial is scheduled for October 2015. This comes after the nearly 2,000 lipitor lawsuits were consolidated into a Lipitor MDL. The lipitor lawsuits are being overseen by U.S. District Judge Richard M. Gergel in South Carolina. The bellwether lipitor trial is filed by a women who claims she took Lipitor for 15 years and then suffered from Diabetes.
