Serving Victims Nationwide

Byetta is a pharmaceutical drug. It’s used to lower blood sugar in people who have high blood sugar. It’s primarily used by individuals who have type 2 diabetes. The drug works by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the body after meals.

It also decreases the total amount of sugar that is produced by the liver. Over a long period of time, high blood sugar can cause several issues. Some of the known issues caused by high blood sugar are diabetic impotence, heart disease and kidney failure.

The major reason why people take Byetta is because they want to decrease their risk of developing these issues. Currently, Byetta doesn’t have any off-label uses. It’s useful to understand that there are several different types of diabetes.

However, type 2 diabetes is the most common out of the different types. In many cases, it’s called adult-onset diabetes. It might also be called noninsulin-dependent diabetes because it usually doesn’t require insulin treatment.

When a person’s cells don’t respond to insulin as they normally should, it’s called type 2 diabetes. Since the cells don’t respond very well, they don’t remove enough sugar from the body, so people with type 2 diabetes have high levels of blood sugar.

Heart disease, kidney failure, diabetic neuropathy and diabetic impotence are all problems that can be caused by high blood sugar. Researchers aren’t fully sure what causes diabetes, but they believe genetics and obesity each play a role.

Byetta is known as an incretin mimetic, so it actually mimics the actions

carried out by incretin hormones. The drug increases the body’s insulin response to meals and decreases sugar production in the liver. Another function of Byetta is slowing the rate at which the stomach empties food.

Most people who’re prescribed Byetta have trouble controlling their blood sugar and have type 2 diabetes. All diabetes treatments are meant to lower blood sugar levels enough to prevent serious health complications.

Every single diabetes treatment starts with lifestyle changes, and Byetta is frequently prescribed as part of a larger treatment regimen for diabetes. In many cases, people can use lifestyle changes to manage their diabetes, but if these changes aren’t enough, a drug like Byetta might be prescribed.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
