    I don’t believe everything i read on the internet and i def don’t believe that lantus can cause cancer…}
    Maybe you work for the drug company?
    I don’t lie and I make a point of it! Maybe you should come visit me, so you can see first hand of the hell I go through on a daily basis. I challenge that and I also challenge the fact that you don’t know what the hell you are talking about!
    Maybe you should see all the medical records that prove some of these things that I go through, so you can stop saying wonderful things about this synthetic man made drug to help us diabetics, perhaps you will able to sleep better at night?
    Maybe you should start finding a solution to the problem instead of making accusations to people like us by calling us liars! You don’t know me!
    Drug companies are getting quite fat with people like us that are sick and have to buy these expensive drugs. I heard that some of these drug companies pay some doctors to promote these drugs. The drug companies are getting richer while we are dying or going through hell. This is ok to you is it?

    I’m worried. My doc ask me to change my Lantus to NPH just for precaution.

    Gustavo,
    I feel very saddened that you are so worried. I hope that your own illnesses will soon get better. I was so angry when I wrote on this page on January 25th.
    I am extremely angry with the media and the commercials that are pushing drugs on people like us. I take so many medications and I can’t seem to come to a happy place. I’m always in excruciating pain and the drugs make them worse or something else happens to me. Can you believe that the drug companies in many cases pay the doctors to push drugs on there patients. Some of these drugs have major side effects to some people and no one body is the same. We all have our own allergies to things and I don’t care about those people that have blinders on, because allot of these people don’t understand what we go through, because there simple goal is to make money. Shame on them for putting us through this and not trying to understand where we are coming from.
    My prayers are with you. Stay safe, keep your diet and excercise and tell your doctor if you are taking vitamins, because some vitamins may have side effects to certain medications. Take care
    Veronica

    My husband was diagnosed with diabetes in 1985. In l99l he was diagnosed with a stage 3 agressive bladder cancer. It was removed and there was no need for chemo or rad. because it was caught before it got into the wall. Ten years later his urologist found a second bladder tumor and removed it. Fast forward to 2008 when he was put on Lantus. In 2009 a third bladder tumor was found and removed. When I read about the possible cancer risk with Lantus we asked both the diabetic doctor and the urologist if my husband should remain on Lantus. They both shrugged their shoulders and said there had been some concern when it was first prescribed to patients but the scare was unfounded. Almost immediately he had a fourth bladder tumor. He began feeling poorly, his urologist said he had a testicle bacteria infection, put him on antibiotics. After three weeks he returned to urogolist and declared free of the bacteria. My husband said he still had some nodules and also was still sore. Doc said it takes time to get over the infection and did not order more testing or medication. About three weeks later my husband told his primary care doctor, further testing had to be done he just was feeling too sick and not himself. A cat scan was ordered and that afternoon the doctor called to say my husband had kidney cancer. This was January 25, 2011. He had the fourth bladder tumor removed Feb.2, hospilizaed Feb.14th with dehydration and exhaustion, kidney removal March 2, told it was removed without contaiming any other organs and got it all. April 25 he went to hospital with congestive heart faillure where the next day we found he had bone cancer. Also diabetic retinopothy (sp) began the last two years of his life. Another question as to Lantus involvement.

    Certainly in my husband’s case it appears there is no question, at least in my mind, that Lantus did hasten the growth and progress of cancer. I would encourage anyone with a past cancer history to be very diligent. I don’t know that helps because certainly my husband was very diligent but for naught.
