Actos, a medication used by Type II diabetics is manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals and was approved for use in 1999. It improves blood sugar levels by increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin in patients who are Type II diabetics. It helps the body better use the insulin it already has as well as preventing the liver from producing excess sugar. By doing this, it is designed to prevent sugar from building up in the bloodstream.
Symptoms of bladder cancer may include:
- Blood in urine
- Constant urgency to empty your bladder
- Frequent urination
- Straining to empty bladder
- Painful urination
