Byetta, Januvia & Victoza

PANCREATIC CANCER CAUSED BY TYPE 2 DIABETES MEDICATIONS

Did you or a loved one suffer from Pancreatic Cancer after being prescribed Byetta, Januvia or Victoza for type 2 diabetes? If so, you may want to look into your legal options. 

What is Byetta, Januvia and Victoza?

Byetta, Januvia and Victoza are all prescription medications for type 2 diabetes. They mimic incretin hormones in the body. Incretins are produced in the body to stimulate the release of insulin after eating a meal. This, in turn, helps lower blood glucose levels.  Hover over each image below for more information.
